About Me


To meet, know, and understand more and more people from other countries so as to help spread peace throughout the world.


Curious about people and concern about creating positive links, I'm respectfull, optimistic, helpful and always happy to meet new friends from anywhere in the world.


I believe that there is always something to learn from people we meet. I'm always ready to share my knowledge and my contacts.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been hosted a lot... and I host a lot! It is a matter of sharing.


I'm already member of two other world travellers organizations: Hospitality Club and 5W (Women Welcome Women World Wide). I hosted a lot of guests from several countries. Also, I have been hosted by wonderful people in Canada, USA and Australia. If I don't need an host where I'm traveling, I always appreciate to have a coffee or a drink with local people.


Cultural life (films, reading, theater, listening to music like worldbeat, blues, jazz and rock, go to music concerts), meeting friends, good food, travelling anywhere in the world and interesting conversations.

Music, Movies, and Books

Blues, jazz, R & B, worldbeat, classical, rock, music from the '70 and '80. I also love history and europeen art.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been in France and Spain as I walked on the Compostella road. Moreover, I crossed Canada(Montréal to Victoria B.C.), the American West Coast and USA (West to East) by car, all by myself. I've also travelled a lot (including Australia by myself) and I wish I'll always do until my last day on earth!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach French, a little Spanish and how to cook a delicious mushroom crepe!
