About Me


I'm fun (or try to be at least), adventurous, love all outdoors activities, love travelling and exploring new places, and especially meeting new people! When I travel, I like to get to know the local culture and interact with the locals, but it is also very fun to meet travelers from all over the world.

I studied in Outdoors Intervention in Chicoutimi, Quebec; since then I have been travelling, moving, learning a lot, and am now working as an outdoors guide for Via Ferrata during the summer.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think couchsurfing is a great way to meet like-minded people who are open-minded and fun (the best part of traveling, in my opinion), while helping with the budget, obviously.
Me and my friends have hosted some people twice, but I haven't lived in my own house/appartment for a long time. When I do have my own place, I would love offer to host people as so many have done for me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'm fortunate (and determined and adventurous) enough to have done many amazing things, some of which include:
-Hiking for 16 days in Tombstone Territorial Park in the Yukon territory, Canada.
-Winter Camping for 8 days in Quebec, with temperatures as low as -40 Celsius.
-Kayaking for 7 days around Whitsunday Island, in Queensland, Australia
-Swam with a whale shark in Honduras, dolphins in Hawaii, sharks on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and many turtles, fish and rays.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach about the French Canadian culture and a little about all the countries I've visited.
I can share (and especially want to learn) about healthy foods, exercise, yoga and acroyoga, meditation, online businesses, slackline and highline, music, investing, outdoor sports, travelling, exercising and MANY others.
I will gladly share many fun stories, and listen to all of yours.
Mostly I like to learn anything.
