About Me


Balance & motion.


Uh... too modest to list ALL my qualities here! ;)

Seriously, I hope the list of references will grow so this section becomes useless.
But just to give you an idea, I'm usually chatty and playful although very peaceful at times, very curious, too often too honest... and more interested in others than in talking about myself! :D

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far, mainly hosting... recently organized a couple of CS events in Paris as well. But still curious & travelling :)


Trying new stuff, understanding how things work and how people think (what their motivations are), going to unusual shows and exhibits (and in 6 years in Paris that list has grown!!!), going to concerts and festivals, cooking & baking, traveling, getting hyper until friends ask for a dose of the stuff I had, and just enjoying the simple things and beauty in life.
Biking, running, ping pong, canoeing and watersports, dancing, drinking, eating!
Typically not interested in politics, or only on very punctual topics.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Joined CS!!!
Okay, this one won't impress anyone here :P

Swimming with sharks, barracudas, rays, squid and giant turtles in the Caribbean! Love snorkeling.

Canyoning. Including the 8-meter jump from a rock we'd just climbed, into a narrow and chilly river (I'm afraid of heights...) And similarly, caving, with a 15-meter rappel down into the darkness, and then the slippery climb back up.

Swimming under a natural stone arch underwater, and through a tunnel just beneath the surface, in the Mediterranean. Not very daring, but beautiful and a new and pleasant sensation... simple but rewarding :)

Underground (literally!) party deep in the tunnels beneath Paris... And more recently, lent *slippers* to a buddy's surfer so she could go down with us without ruining her shoes! She and the slippers made it back OK after many miles crawling and trudging through mud underground :D

Read a book in a single morning :D OK, that was a long time ago.

Went clubbing until the early hours of the morning, picked up my luggage which I'd left on the way in, and took a night bus to catch my CDG flight to... wherever :D

Teach, Learn, Share

Always looking out for more of my city's secrets, and always willing to exchange tips on the topic ;) So why not ask me about funky or exotic events, restaurants, shows, festivals, bars and streets and more!
