About Me

I CAN'T HOST DURING CHRISTMAS TIME & NYE, SORRY ABOUT THAT

Firstly, my profile pictures are pretty old (2011) so my hair is much shorter now. I know it's just a detail, but it can be useful if we have to meet somewhere and you're looking for me in a crowded place.

So I'm a 22 year-old french girl, currently living in Prague with my boyfriend Antoine (who's 21) and my beagle dog Lewis (who's 9 month-old). We came to lve here in October 2014 and so far we like it very much!

I think the most important things about me are pretty much the same as anyone on this website : I love travelling, meeting new people, discovering different places, cultures, languages, lifestyles... I'm open-minded and curious about everything.

I'm very interested in art (wether it is photography, cinema, music, painting, litterature & poetry, architecture, sculpture or anything else!) despite the fact I always feel like I don't know ENOUGH about it. I'm also very keen on fashion but not in the "I want to follow every trend blindly so that I am dresed just like everyone else" way, I mostly like it for its history, its place/meaning and power in society, and its
artistic value. Not sure if that makes sense but I couldn't really find the exact words to explain this in English.

By the way I speak french fluently, english almost fluently, and I can understand spanish very well (as long as you don't speak too fast!) but I'm struggling to speak because I haven't been practicing it for ages!

And I also love philosophy and great discussions or debates about any "meaningful" subject =)

I can enjoy staying at home and chill out in front of a movie or just talking as much as I can enjoy going out and partying all night, it just depends on my mood and the people who are with me!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I'm on this website because I've fallen in love with this concept since I first discovered it (around 2010 I think). I think it's a great way to travel in a different way, meeting great people & saving money. I've always been thinking teh whole thing in "travelling" is not so much about where you've been to but rather about who you met there, what you've done and seen, and having cool stories to remember for the rest of your life! =)

Interests

I think I actually already said what are my main interests above, ahah.

Music, Movies & Books

Music (this isn't in a precise order, like from my favorite to the one I like the least, just putting names as they come through my mind!) :

Beatles, Beach Boys, Rolling Stones, Doors, Clash, Pink Floyd, Patti Smith, Balck Angels, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Brian Jonestow Massacre, David Bowie, Velvet Underground, Lou Reed, Joan Jett, The Cramps, AC/DC, Guns N Roses, Iggy Pop, Crystal Castles, The Underground Youth, Gesaffelstein, Serge Gainsbourg, Nirvana, Joy Division, The Cramberries, Jimi Hendrix, Psychic Ills, Spacemen 3, Night Beats... So mostly old-school rock'n'roll (or nowadays bands that sound old-school ahah)

This is what I like listenning to during daytime but when it comes to parties I definitely prefer electro (but here I have no name to tell you because I NEVER remember what/who I've been listenning to... Ahah)

Movies : almost every Disney & Pixar movies - Thelma & Louise - Old Boy - Before Sunrise - Innocents (The Dreamers) - A Clockwork Orange - Catch Me If You Can - every movie I've seen of Pedro Almodovar - almost all the movies of Tim Burton - Gattaca - Boyhood - The Shawshank Redemption - Human Nature - Addams Family - Kill Bill - Trainspotting - many Wes Anderson movies - many Xavier Dolan movies - The Game - Las Vegas Parano - The Big Lebowski - I Love you Philipp Morris - Will Hunting - many Miyazaki movies (mostly - The Science of Sleep - American Beauty - Virgin Suicides - Pulp Fiction - Into The Wild - Being John Malkovich - Yes Man - Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind & many others I probably forget!

I also like TV shows... Mainly those :
The Simpsons/American Dad/Family Guy/South Park - Daria - Breaking Bad - Lost - Twin Peaks - Game Of Thrones - The Big Bang Theory

Books :

I shamelessly have to admit that I haven't read a WHOLE book for more than one year... I start many, read a few chapters and then I sort of give up. Have no idea why but I definitely have to work on that because I used to love reading...

Anyway, the very FEW names that come to my mind are those :
Junky (William Burroughs) - Der Steppenwolf (Herman Hesse) - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Just Kids (Patti Smith) - Bukowski - Boris Vian

What a ridiculously short list, I know! Ahah
