About Me


To discover people from the world imagined by J. Lennon (old one) / To discover people from the world as it is (new one)


easygoing, reliable, talkative and clean shortly.

I need faces to tell and you need my voice to hear more...


Life is what you make it! (old one) / Life is what you choose from what brought by life itself (new one)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I had my first guests Luis (from Peru) & Maria (from Russia) what perfect guests! I had to work without sleeping because they were lovely to talk and have fun, good dancers! (first one)

(later) after a while, it's working much more than i expected.

(Last one) I have had really really great time ! Real friends!
