About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Greet each day your eyes open to beauty, your mind open to change, your heart open to love

ABOUT ME

I'm a free spirit! If you see me somewhere, i'll be quite often with a camera in my hands. Optimpistic, curious, not scared of a lot of things, always in movement, that's what people say about me. Life is short let's enjoy it! What i like the most? Simple things, a good meal with my friends or with strangers, a good book, crazy things, being lost in a city, break the routine, take risks...

PHILOSOPHY

“Remember: Life is short, break the rules (they were made to be broken) Forgive quickly, kiss slowly Love truly, laugh uncontrollably And never regret anything that makes you smile. The clouds are lined with silver and the glass is half full (though the answers won't be found at the bottom) Don't sweat the small stuff, You are who you are meant to be, Dance as if no one's watching, Love as if it's all you know, Dream as if you'll live forever, Live as if you'll die today” ― James Dean

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host at my place near Paris, anyone honest, chilled and joyfull is welcome.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far I've been experiencing it in Spain, Italy and Australia! Even in France, my own country :)

Music, Movies & Books

At the movies at least once a week. Music in my ear everyday. Always a book in y bag.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

First love in Venice. Going to Africa at 18 on my own was like nothing else. Working in a theme park for 4 months in the US just a month after Africa was hard work(up to 70 hours a week) but a great experience. I left New York 1 day before the 11th. La Tomatina in Spain was insane...Doing Free Hugs in Sydney on New Year Eve having for background the Opera House was pretty cool. Living in Melbourne for a year has been an amazing journey , i've met interesting people and discovered myself like never before. Tonsai in Thailand: heaven on earth!

Teach, Learn, Share

Love is sharing, and i'm a good cook (well, people say so) so if you give me the ingredients, you could make happy your stomach...chocolat cake, chocolat pie, crêpes, 4 course meal... And if you want i can give you some cooking lessons! ;) Just got a TESOL certificate to teach english overseas.
