About Me

« De tout. Beaucoup. Deux fois. » (Everything. A lot. Twice.)


I'm chilled but up to most plans, I usually spend my spare time having drinks with friends, in my town or elsewhere, swimming and hiking, working in children camps, going places when I'm fed up of mine, trying to get my driving license... I also love to spend a whole morning reading a book under a blanket.


- I want to be a Hobbit
- Hakuna Matata

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because thanks to you forgetful guys, I won't have to buy socks for the next few years. And a great man (and one of my heroes) said you always need a pair of socks.

I live with my flatmate Jeremy, please see the couch's information to be sure you really want to come and see us. HAHAHA. xD

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Last summer during a camp in Norway, the teens and I found a WHALE BONE on a deserted beach. We dragged it in the sand and used it as a bench around the campfire. I felt so amazingly small.

I was walking with the kids from another camp and it was summer's end, when a backpacker went past us to turn in a small street. One minute later we were in front of this street and I saw a woman come out, say "you're back !" and jump in his arms. Just to glimpse this short moment made me so happy :)

I managed to play Schubert's impromptu 92/2 (a piano piece) and my wrists still remember that.

I can't get bored of sunsets, dawns, cliffs, falling snow or shooting stars.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love food ! I don't have a very high level of cooking (at all !) but we can cook together some easy stuff you might not know x)
