About Me

Hi there !
Just started a one year trip (22/07/16).... which me Luck !
For the moment I'm traveling in Asia but in September I will start a working holiday visa in Australia.
Currently feeding the locals mosquitos.

I'm not shy person so I guess it make me someone sociable :D
I love to discover new thing, new food, activities, languages.
Most of the time, I'm traveling alone because I think it's the best way to meet local an new people.
I have a master degree interior design but never really work in this field for the moment.
otherwise I'm into natural medical care.
But I hate sunscreen. I almost rather wear a turtle neck by 40°C than put sunscreen.
So I guess that I'm also full of contradictions.

I'm also really into food. Trying new restaurants and food as much as I (and my wallet) can.
Just discovered the salak which is an Indonesian fruit and I love it ! If you don't now it, try if you can !

PHILOSOPHY

I tried to moderate bad things. I believe in Karma. Everything is balance in life.
It's also a way to not complain to much about yourself when something is wrong and to go forward.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I unfortunately can't host, since I'm traveling.
But for sure at 100 % I can tell you about Paris and all the cut places it has to offer :) I was born there. So I know it pretty well !

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had my first CS experiences two years ago and it was wonderful ! I really enjoyed it and hope to couchsurf again soon.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music : Classical, minimal, hip hop or world music depending on the mood. I love Nicolas Jaar/Darkside (electro), Nujabes ( jazz/rap) and Idan Raichel Project ("world music") for example.

Books : L.A storie first one in my heart ! I just bought an e reader so I'm reading much more than before.

Movies : I like movies that surprise you. When the storie is anecdotal just a pretext to show you crazy characters and situations.

Recently : Moon Walker, Wild Tales (les nouveaux sauvages), A perfect day (un jour comme un autre), Je suis mort mais j'ai des amis (I'm dead but I have friends)
Alf old : Burn after reading, Carnage, Very cold trip
Really old : Reservoir Dogs, The breakfast club, The big Lebowsky

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Oh.... The most amazing thing have seen in my life is certainly, Iceland.

but hey, I just turned 26 , hope it's just the beginning !

I can of course teach you or speak french with you.
I can also can advice you about Paris if you go there.
