About Me


To get a new place!


I like good conversations over coffee.
I like beautiful things, most of which i can't afford but that's the fun of it, wanting something you can't have. Yes, i'm a masochist too.
I like watching movies and listening to music.
I prefer quiet places over loud ones.
I believe in quality over quantity,
that time is gold,
that honesty is the best policy,
i also believe in luck. how else can you explain the success of the people you dislike? :)

"and the real truth is, I probably don't want to be too happy or content. Because, then what? I actually like the quest, the search. That's the fun. The more lost you are, the more you have to look forward to. What do you know? I'm having a great time and I don't even know it."- Ally McBeal


I live to be happy so that i can make other people happy too.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I couchsurfed in Paris. I particularly chose a French family since I would feel safer. They were a very hospitable French family and i ended up bedsurfing and not couchsurfing. They gave me a room for myself! They were so great and the kids too! Thanks Claire and Francis, Marina, Antoine and Lili :)
