About Me

ABOUT ME

I’m 25 years old and I’m still not sure who I want to be when I grow up. Sometimes I’m this introverted book-lover who enjoys spending time on my own. Sometimes I’m super talkative and dynamic, playing music super loud. I do know for sure that I’m always up for a new adventure. My long term goals include running a B & B in Ireland, translating a novel and trying sushi. I’m curious and quick to laugh, and I like to be around people who are passionate and ambitious.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had the pleasure of hosting a few people from different countries and every experience has been a great one. I love showing people around and seeing the city from their perspective. Often, with couchsurfers, I even get to go to places I had never been to in Montréal. I also had the opportunity of being hosted in Spain, Ireland and Canada. I met many inspiring and generous people and I'm looking forward to meeting even more as I travel to the United States in the next couple of months.

Interests

Like most people here I just LOVE to travel. I wish I could get paid to travel. I'm still trying to figure out a way to do that (2013 update: I think I found one!!). I also read a lot (mostly travel stories and classic literature). I enjoy speaking foreign languages, eating pizza, going to concerts and festivals, answering trivia questions and learning stuff in general.

Music, Movies & Books

Some of my favorite books are All Over the Map by Laura Fraser, Russian Winter by Daphne Kalotay, Sur la route de Janis Joplin by Jeanne-Martine Vacher, Gulliver's Travel by Jonathan Swift and I'm obsessed with James Joyce's writing.

As for music, I enjoy listening to the Descendents, Bikini Kill, Janis Joplin, City and Colour, Mother Mother, Ingrid St-Pierre, Streetlight Manifesto, NOFX, Lunachicks, and so much more!

Teach, Learn, Share

I love learning new languages so I would be really happy if I could learn to speak some words in any language or get the chance to practice the ones I already learned. I also want to learn to play the guitar and to enjoy good food. In return I could teach about my culture and offer some French lessons. I could also offer tips on traveling or on learning languages.
