About Me


Enjoy Life!


My name is Faye. I'm 1/2 French-1/2 British. I used to live in France, UK and Australia and recently I moved to New Zealand and I hope to travel and work here at least for 1 year.

I'm working in the film industry. Recently I've been working in Motion Capture. That might not ring the bell (?).... well, you know those people that we put in a suit with some ping pong sized reflective ball on it? (if you've watched the making of Lord of the Rings or Avatar you'll know what I mean). My job is to record the motion of those people and target those motion onto digital characters. Sorry if I sound a bit too geeky :P



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


CSing is the best way for meeting people, sharing travelling experiences and discover new culture.


I discovered Couch Surfing in Summer 2008: a friend told me about it. Amazing concept!

Since then I did couchsurfing in France, UK, Japan, Australia. It has been an amazing experience. I also hosted a few people.

I always look forward to my next CS experiences as I love meeting new people especially if they have a different culture.


I love going to the cinema. I haven't been enough since I moved Down Under tho.

I also watch a lot of TV series (24, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, Lost, Firefly, Walking Dead, House, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Californication, Medium, The Event, Desperate Housewives and much more) I'm more and more like a TV show geek! I guess sometimes I spend too much time in front of screens.... but while I'm travelling I'm also happy to take a big break on that end ;-)

I love taking photos... I usually play around with compact cameras and try to get the best result possible with them. Check my flickr page http://www.flickr.com/photos/walfay

I also love watching/trying extreme sports such as bodyboard, wakeboard, kitesurf, streetboard. I surf when the waves have a reasonable size for me: I'm a bit of a chicken on big(ish) waves :P

I love riding motorcycle too :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Taking a hot wild bath in a river of Japan :) Water was at about 41-43 degrees. Amazing!

Climbing the Lao Zhai, Xing Ping, China at the speed of light so I didn't miss the sunset on the Li River. I was exhausted but managed to reach the top on time and saw one of the most beautiful sunset of my life :)
