About Me

Friends told me that I am very positive; curious; friendly and easygoing person and I agree with that :-)
I love people and I like to hangout a lot whenever I can; meeting new people is amazing, you never know what to expect; have different points of view; learn about their culture and their mindset.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I discovered Couchsurfing by accident, and my real first experience was not good at all.
After this bad experience being hosted, I decided to host people and show them my hospitality; being helpful; being a good tour guide; make new friends and be open to the world ;-)

During the first 6 years in Paris, I hosted more than 600 people from all around the world, and 90% was super good experiences.

Interests

I also like anything that affects technology and space exploration, not because one day, I'd like robots to replace humans on Earth as it is the case already in many factories, or that we will have sex with robots soon, or we are part of the matrix that control us, but technology is something that really fascinates me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I received two Russian Lesbian, they stayed at my place for more than 1 month and half. They couldn't speak english and their french was not the good.
They were looking for protection about LGBT from Russia by applying for refugee protection in France and be allow to stay there and feel free to love each.
I helped them and after almost 2 years, they finally got their refugee status. They are now FREE TO LOVE, and to LIVE THEIR LIFE without any fear.
I am really proud to be part of their LOVE STORY and their FREEDOM.
(-: PEACE and LOVE :-)
