About Me


I always walk when I talk on the phone.. I hate bathtubes. I don't like agressive and over pessimistic people. Coffee addict.


I don't think I've managed to develop my own personal philosophy yet, but I would like to adopt my Icelandic friend's zen approach: "Don't worry and don't be stressed, in two years all of this won't matter."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am always up for a meeting, a drink or a walk. I might be able to host, but since my lifestyle has been -and will continue to be- pretty chaotic, I can't guarantee you a place to stay (however you're welcome to message me!)


Overall positive, although I did have one wierd experience.


Reading, cooking and eating and drinking wine and talking with my friends (or random people). Picnics. Photojournalism, documentaries. XXI. Russian language and literature. Any literature. Graphic novels. Mint tea. Swimming. Night swimming, even better. Hitch-hiking. Pretending to be a sailor. Geopolitics. Theatre. Sea. Knitting. Sleepless nights.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Was a train driver for a night.
Escaped a (self-proclaimed) mafia chasing me and my friends with a car.

Teach, Learn, Share

I wanna learn : to play accordeon, to climb, Russian, Spanish, Arabic, tap dance. I can teach : languages, how-to-make-simple-and-cheap-meals, how to deal with French bureaucracy, how to make a pinhole camera and lot of other (very likely useless) things.
