live, share, discover
Simple, spontaneous, friendly... I'm open minded and always ready to discover new things.
I enjoy hanging out with friends and reinvent the world over a beer or a good meal, listening to some live music, dreaming for hours, singing in my car, getting lost in cities, dancing all night long, getting overwhelmed by peaceful and immesurable landscapes, imaging my future travel destination...
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've surfed couches, hosted people on my own couch, met people for a drink or for a walk...
Some of these experiences have created nice friendships, some other have just been basic and "convenient"... but each of them has been fulfilling and I only have good memories from all these moments spent with Couchsurfers!
Traveling above all! My head is full of places I dream to visit or revisit, especially Canada, South America and South Eastern Asia.
I like Art in general: fine arts and design, cinema, photography, music... I make crafty stuff with leather, play the piano, go photo hunting when I have time... and there is nothing I like more than being part of a movie shooting crew, especially when I'm the one dealing with the camera!
I'm an outdoor sports addict and I wish I could spend my days skiing, canoeing, hicking, surfing and swimming. I also started Yoga this year, and make some meditation as often as I can.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Living in Indonesia for a year was probabbly the most beautiful and intense experience in my life. Learning Indonesian language, studying leather crafts with a local craftsman, crossing Java by motorbike under the monsoon, learning meditation, discovering the unique and limitless creativity of the contemporary art scene of Yogyakarta, falling in love, hicking the majestic Merapi volcano, hitchhiking in the back of cows truck... and starting to look at the world differently.
Teach, Learn, Share
Music, Art, French language, culture and way of living... I bet I'll never teach you any of these things, but it's all I can think of for now! We'll see when we'll meet...
My ears like to listen to any kind of stories, my mouth enjoys discovering differents types of cooking, my eyes are always wide open when they are shown pictures from the whole world, and my fingers would love to learn string bass!
