About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My six-month travel around South America changed my life in 2012. I left marketing for photography, Barcelona for the French Pyrenees. Then I joined Cartagena, Colombia in 2016 to work for an environmental project, as I was willing to do something for my planet. Unfortunately it wasn't so exciting as it seemed to be and I realised that it wasn't the life I was dreaming of. So I will soon be on the road again around South America, living from day to day, backpacking, volunteering and hopefully doing some photodocumentaries.

ABOUT ME

Passionate about travelling, taking photos and doing sport I also love helping people whenever I can.

PHILOSOPHY

You can learn 100 times better from people than at school.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

As I was travelling in hostels, some backpackers recommended me to try couchsurfing. That was the best experience ever. My hosts became friends in a few minutes, it's just incredible. You can share more with surfers you spend a few hours with, than with friends that you know for years. Travelling gives you this opportunity!

I love taking part in couchsurfing meetings and whereever I live most of my friends are from the CS community. I have been hosted by many great couchsurfers and I try to host as often as I can. Usually what is supposed to be one night ends being one week and the beginning of a true friendship, which is probably why the people I hosted left references as friends instead of surfers!!!

Interests

I love all kinds of outdoor sports : rollerblading, mountain biking, hiking, surfing, sailing, swimming, playing volleyball... I love nature and widlife, and I feel more and more connected to the mother earth. I practice yoga, meditation, use essential oils, and tries to have a healthy life. I am passionate about photography and intend to use this media to tell stories. I love travelling, learning languages and meeting people from other cultures.

Music, Movies, and Books

Best movie ever: Into The Wild.
Music: I love discovering local music while travelling or living abroad. Now, I usually listen to soul, reggae and some commercial music on the radio!
Books: I read so many books in my life that it is hard to tell. The last book I read that impacted me much is The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (Toltec Wisdom)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Working as a volunteer with monkeys, bears and macaws in a Bolivian wildlife refuge, La Senda Verde.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you languages, prepare some French cake for you, and share my experience with you. I can also give you some advice on digital photography or even with your computer. Of course I will bring my food and help you with the cleaning.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can show you around Cartagena centre and help you organise your trips around the region. We can also discover new places together. We can visit a close place together during the week end.
