About Me




I find it always difficult to describe myself in a few sentences, but I'm willing to give it a try: I enjoy spending time with my family, going out with friends, going to the movie or just dance till my feet hurt,travelling,discussing about nothing and everything, going to concerts/ festivals.I love food: eating and cooking it but I prefer to eat it :)
I consider myself as open- minded, always ready to learn new experiences.

The reason why I signed up for CS is that it gives the perfect opppurtinity to get to know a country in a non-touristic way and especially the fact to meet new people strongly appeals to me. This way I can learn much more about people coming from different backgrounds, exchanging experiences, learning new things etc.


'Il y'a que les imbèciles qui ne changent pas d'avis'.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Besides surfing, I would like to host also. CS is the chance to make people feel comfortable in a country that isn't theirs.


My first experience was very nice (reference cfr. :-) and I hope that in the future more will follow. As I said before it would be nice to host.


My experience in Portugal broadened my perspective in all possible ways (music, food, literature, etc.) and one of the results is, that I ended with "travelitis" :)
But in general I like doing sports, listening to music, food, etc.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like all kinds of music from Björk, to Nina Simone, to Michael Jackson, to Sade, to Marvin Gaye, to Justin Timberlake, to Radiohead, to M.I.A., to Kofi Olimide,to Burial, to...

One of my favourites writers: Milan Kundera, Amélie Nothomb, Khaled Hosseini and Isabelle Allende.

I enjoy all kinds of movies. One of my favourites: "Jeux d'enfants"; "Romeo and Juliet" of Baz Luhrman; "My life without me",...I like the Tarantino movies, Almodóvar, Coen, etc. movies.
