About Me

What a big question! I don't know what to say... I'm 19 years old, just at the moment when it becomes sooo easy to travel by my own and then I enjoy this freedom by travelling alone everywhere I can go.

I'm very curious, like to discover other possible ways of living. I want to get inspired of as much different people as possible. I'm a positive person and try to see the good part of each situation. The amazing thing of this challenge is that the more I do it, the easier it is.

In the present moment, I'm trying to get in a relax - meditation - mood. I don't want to run all over the world. I want to enjoy every single thing. Since last summer, sometimes I stop walking in the streets and try to find quickly three things I'm grateful for in the present moment. It helps me to focus on small things (wind, sun, silence, noise, the contact between my feet and the ground - yes, I can be happy with very small things - and so much more !) I'm also in big questions about what life is about, why are we living, and anything that helps me to stay connected to real life (as it is soooo easy in our modern world to get lost into TV shows, love those characters who don't even exist in real life, and just forget about our own and real one).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

For my 18s, I decided to leave for the whole summer and travel in Europe. I wanted to meet new people, new places, new cultures... Discover the world I live in. I've been in Europe for 10 weeks. I met people too awesome, then I've been forced (by myself) to come back and visit them again this summer. You know, when life is against you... :P

I'm not the kind of girl who loves tourism. I love to see how other people live in their daily life. I don't really mind about how they live when they get out of their real life. It is the reality that matters to me. I think Couchsurfing is an amazing place to meet happy and open mind people. I mean. Real ones. Not only in their trip, but in every single day of their life. Happiness is the kind of thing that increase more and more when you share it with others, so you have no reason to keep it for you !

*I don't host people for the moment, because I only have enough place & I won't be home this summer. However,...
- if you want to meet up somewhere in Europe this summer, let me know
- if you come in Quebec, I can help you to organize your trip or to let you know where to go
- I promise the day I have a real apartment I share it to anyone who wants to visit my city :)


oh God, my interests... I love music, to listen and to play, but mostly to sing. I love to read, to write, I love to watch shows (every style). I love zumba dance, but more than anything, I love to discover people's interests. I love to see how others live and get inspired of this. I'm a curious woman! I love to take a coffee with a friend and talk about important questions of life. I loooove philosophy. I'm fascinated by where we come from and where we are going. Have to go, and without hoping to answer to all my questions, I like to find place to let them exist. :) I also like to learn new languages, because it gives me more chances to meet new people and to learn their way of perceive life.

Music, Movies, and Books

MUSIC : I listen to every kind of music, from opera to rock, in french, in english and in spanish. (Only those three languages because I never had the chance to listen to music from other places, but if you have music from somewhere else, please show it to me!!!)
MOVIES : I love when I find a movie that make me work on my perception of life. Yes Man, Patch Adams, Rise of Guardians... Cute movies that you can watch just for fun or find deep messages. Everything happens in the eye of the one who's watching.
BOOKS : Autobiographies. For the moment. I'm a bit undefined on that point. I work on it!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My whole life is an amazing trip !

Teach, Learn, Share

"When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new." - Dalai Lama.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I don't think I can tell what I would share with someone before meeting him or her. It doesn't mean that I won't share anything, but just that what we'll share will depends on our needs in the present moment. Let's be surprised by Life!

Specially this summer, I'm coming in Europe to learn Spanish. I'm looking for a place to stay for the whole month of July in Spain. The best would be to work for someone (like on Workaway - you host me and feed me, and I work for you for a job you need in exchange). I'm writing it here, in case you would know someone or would be interested to have some help this summer... Never know !
