About Me


Enjoying my life!!!


What about me?

I am French, just turned 36 years old with a passion for tourism, people, languages, travels, photos, children... By making my passion my job and my job my passion, I had the chance to travel a lot... everything started end of 2010 when i made changes in my life... After a year in New Zealand, few months in Kos (a greek island), few weeks in Italy, and 6 months working on a cruise ship, I am now living in Australia for more than 4 years, looking forward to always living new adventures and meeting wonderful soul mates...

I am a really sociable, easy going, open-minded and smiling woman... :-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


For Kos: I hosted and I hang out with couchsurfers.
For France: I participated in couchsurfing hanging out with couchsurfers... I know what hosting is, so even if I couldn't host people for a couch, I was always ready to hang out, to show my city and my country, to make people discovered french food, wine, music, ... and to share lots of other things...
For Australia, while i was living in Hornsby, I hosted and offered my sofa bed ;-) Now, I am able to host CSfers at my place in Canberra.
For the rest of the world: I'm glad to surf a couch and spend time with my new friends and I am also participating to meetings...


My experiences of couchsurfing were awesome! I had a wonderful first host in Singapore and I met really nice couchsurfers there as well... And it is now a pleasure to meet couchsurfers everywhere... :)


I like the simple things of life, having a walk, chatting, hanging out, meeting old and new friends, eating, drinking, partying, taking photos, learning heaps of languages, baking, reading, watching movies, enjoying the nature, travelling, watching rugby match, dancing,...
