About Me

CURRENT MISSION

explore, learn, love, laugh, share (but i dont like the word mission...all for spontaneity and distraction)

ABOUT ME

Likes: interesting conversation, questioning, traveling, new experiences, becoming sidetracked, tea, a good bottle of wine, bad jokes, beautiful places, the 'arts' (movies/cinema, art/galleries, concerts, plays, etc.), laughing, creativity

Dislikes: Close mindedness, romantic comedies

PHILOSOPHY

Never judge.

Every experience has something to teach you.

Je suis tout ça. Je suis lui et lui, mais lui et lui aussi, et puis lui, lui je ne veux pas décevoir. Je suis elle, et elle aussi. Je suis français, espagnol, anglais, danois. Je suis pas un, mais plusieurs. Je suis comme europe, toute ça. Je suis un vrai bordel.

Time weighs down on you like an old, ambiguous dream. You keep moving, trying to slip through it. But even if you go to the ends of the earth, you wont be able to escape it. Still, you have to go there--to the edge

--Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

All those years in university taught me much less than the people i've met traveling

Interests

smiling where ever you are... dont worry the worst of problems seem to be the best laughs later

and traveling where ever the wind blows...
because "the answer my friend is blowing in the wind..."

Music, Movies & Books

pretty much anything that makes you think.

Paradis sur mesure, Rhinocéros, 1984, Brave New World, Farenheight 451, The little prince, once a runner, The catcher in the rye, Animal farm, harry potter, Lord of the Rings, The northern lights/The golden compass (the entire series). I love books.
