About Me

After spending a year teaching abroad I discovered that it was kind of hard to go back to living a normal life and so 6 years later I'm still traveling! I'm a French/English freelance translator so I simply use my job as an excuse to travel a lot.

When I'm "stuck" in Paris I love to meet with travelers so I can listen to their stories. I did make some good friends thanks to couchsurfing and I hope I'll make some more.

I'm also a qualified language teacher so if you're learning French or need to work on your English I'd be happy to help! Wherever I travel I can usually be spotted at the local language exchange trying to help people with their french and practicing my Spanish.

I also do photography and I write which are two topics I love discussing!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to meet people with different cultural backgrounds and people who like to travel as well.
