About Me

Ma vie en 10 mots: Danse, Voyage, Bleu, Glace, Droit de l'homme,LGBT, Couchsurfing, Animation, Harry Potter, Fiesta!!!


Live and let Live.

Keep smiling cause you never know who is falling in love with your smile.

"Dance as if no one is watching"

Behave with the others the way you want them to behave with you.


"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


My couch is officially available :) .


I have couchsurfed All over Europe, Oceania, North Africa, North and South America. And am hosting since september 2010. GREAT EXPERIENCE!:D


Dancing is my passion I cannot live without it Reading,Human rights, Eating ice cream anywhere at any time in any temperature Getting wet in the rain even in England, TRAVELLING If I could I would do it all the time, as soon as I am bored I start planning a trip, I select a random country, start deciding which cities I want to go to how many days, what I want to see etc and as soon as I have a holiday I am off, every penny I earn goes into travelling, If globetrotting could be a profession I would be the best at it ;) as most of you I am sure Animation avec les enfants Fanatical about Blue :D
