About Me


Flyover road and mount, pack and unpack, bite in each day even if some break your teeth


I am very independant and like to feel things I live. For me a sunrise on a climbing cliff worths more than anything. I enjoy seing all my belongings fitting in a 15kg suitcase. I wanted to be a marine biologist since I was 4, then I switched to marine sociology. I am fascinated with the vast topic "people and the sea"! Currently having trouble to work 8 hours per day in an office, which was not the original plan, I aim to develop an alternative path, in process...


Capitalism fsucks people up.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf when I need, I host when I can... You never know what will happen!


Love at first sight with a great CS meeting next to Granada about 3 days after joining the community!


Jump in puddles, cover myself with mud, go in the freezing fjord in Denmark and then to the sauna, listening to flamenco in Andalusia, sailing under the stars, trad climbing in England, dancing flamenco on a climbing rock, ...

Music, Movies, and Books

I like to treat my ears with... Siriusmo, Metronomy, M83
Marvin Gaye, Cat Stevens, Prince Miaouu, Cocorosie, Edith Piaf, Mansfield TYA, The Kooks, etc etc etc

I like to treat my eyes with:
some great books: Mon bel Oranger (JM de Vasconcelos), Germinal (Zola), and I love to explore human relationships (Kundera, O. Gazalé, Faulkner, Vesaas, Bergson...)
some thrilling movies: Straight Story by Lynch, Breaking the Waves and Dancer in the Dark (that's Lars von Trier), Thelma and Louise, Persepolis, The Dream Science (Michel Gondry)...

sunrise at Ayers rock in Australia is the first thing that comes to my mind. And now I cant think about anything else.
