About Me

Keen walker, photographer & writer.
Easy-going, funny, open-minded, ready for adventure.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love the idea of meeting locals when traveling, it makes experiences so much more authentic! I have only couchsurfed on one occasion a while back (in 2011), and now I wish to give it another go :) So I hope you won't find my lack of references worrisome, I just haven't had the opportunity to use the site much!


Walking around Paris and finding unexpected treasures, dreaming about exotic destinations, reading 20th Century novels, having a nice beer with friends, eating yummy food...
