About Me


I am easygoing, love meeting people from all over, learning new things.. especially about languages and all that is human communication.Love trying new foods, but I refuse to eat anything slimy or alive. Oysters, for example. It just won't go down, I've tried.I don't smoke (anything) and like to drink occasionnally (wine, preference for young red wines). Love physical activities and miss being able to get to most locations by foot in Paris. CouchSurfing has been great so far, and I love the interesting people I've met along the way. I hope to travel farther in the coming months and years and cross paths with more amazing individuals.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like attending events in the cities I visit, language exchanges, meeting up with travelers for coffee and/or showing them around town if I am free.


Great way to meet people who are just as curious about the world as you are.
