About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Visit half the countries of the world before turning 30

ABOUT ME

Hi everyone,

I first started couchsurfing on a one-year round-the-world trip... I had such an amazing experience that I absolutely wanted to share it with others once I was back to Geneva. I'm an easygoing, curious and smiley girl. As a good (half) french, I like to chat over a good meal and drink. In general, I have a lust for life and travelling is to me one of its most meaningful sides. If you come to Geneva, I will do my best to make the most of your stay and show you what Geneva has to offer.

PHILOSOPHY

"In three words I can sum up everything I learned about life: it goes on.." And for the best!
