About Me


Meet people


We travelled around the world trip two years ago and we couchsurfed in several cities. In January, we will be living in Melbourne for 4,5 months !

Sophie is studying at the Paris lawyer school and working in a lawyer company. She previously worked in an NGO helping illegal immigrants to enforce their rights. Pascal is attending business school, studying social entrepreneurship and working in a NGO helping innovative social entrepreneurs to scale up their projects.

We like to meet new people, to learn from them and understand other cultures. We also like to share good food, have drinks with friends and go out.

We lived the last 4 months in Melbourne and are now traveling a couple of weeks in Tasmania and Queensland!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We couchsurfed in several cities during our round the world trip in Asia and in the US. Back in Paris, we hosted some couchsurfers visiting this nice city. We met really nice people in Melbourne in CS meetings and we are now looking again for a couch in Cairns!


We've been hosted 5 days in Hong-Kong and 4 days in Tokyo. Pascal has been hosted 5 days in Las Vegas, 3 days in San Francisco, 1 week in Chicago and 5 days in Philadelphia. Great experiences !
