About Me

I am a 27 yo French girl, I grew up mostly in France and I have been living in Spain and in the UK for several years.

I am really into travelling and meeting new people, discovering local culture, food and way of life in general! 😃

↪️A few words to describe me?
I'd say: positive, active and curious.✌️

🌏 Next trip 🌎
Summer 2017: South America trip (Uruguay, North Argentina and South Brazil) + One week in NYC

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is a good way to meet people with the same sharing spirit.

I did not have the opportunity to host or surf yet but I am really excited about it and I hope my next trip will be a good opportunity to do a it 😀


🌿Nature: hiking and climbing are usual hobbies; I love as well nature sports such as rafting, kayak or via ferrata

🤾Sports: I love running and usually do it to explore new cities in a different way.
I like sports team as well: I practiced handball and I am always in for a beach volley session.

📷Photography: Learning by my self, I love hanging around just taking nice pics, trying to capture unique moments.

🎶Music: My fav' music styles are indie, indie rock, pop rock, chill electronic.
If I can go to a music fest while travelling I am the happiest girl in the world.

🥗Food: For me travelling is also - mostly - a way to taste amazing food everywhere I go.
I'd say I am flexitarian (I am not vegetarian and I do not tend to become one, but I have considerably reduced the quantity of meat I eat the past couple of years)
As a French folk I am a wine and cheese lover but also really like to taste craft beers and ciders.

♻️ Green spirit: I do not consider myself as a model of sustainability neither "0 waste" but I try hard to get my life more ethical from this point of view.
