About Me


Here is a few things about myself:

Having a good conversation in a bar/pub/hut/igloo/tent with drinks or a nice cup of coffee is fantastic and I will always be up for it.

I love talking about music, I like any genre. I really love to go see bands live.

I have always travelled as far as I can remember. My parents are from Belgium but I was born in Canada. I used to go see my family there every year since I was born. I feel right at home in an airport or on the plane.

I love to learn new stuff about anything and everything. I love random facts.

I like to be surrounded by nature so in that matter I love hiking, long walks and anything in between.

I love to try new beers! I like any types but my absolute favorites are Stouts and Ipa's.

We can have discussions in French or English, choose the one you are the most comfortable with!

All right enough, now it's your turn!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on couchsurfing to meet new people, learn and share! The cs meetups are amazing and I've met so many people because of that. I can't thank more this website for that reason.

Couchsurfing Experience
I have hosted 5-10 people in different cities (Vancouver, Montréal, Melbourne)
I have attended more than 15 CS Events around the world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saved a crab from being eaten in a seafood restaurant in mexico because it had escaped the kitchen and was now stuck in the bathroom. I had to help him escape... I put it back in the ocean carrying the crab in a box given by 1 of the waiter from that restaurant haha.
