Hi everybody! I'm Quentin, part human and part star dust. I live with my girlfriend and our cat right next to Paris. I try to be logical, zen and have a better understanding of the world around me... While having fun! I'm a rather calm and peaceful person yet I'm the first one to pull (friendly) pranks or some kind of stupid stunt. I also enjoy urban exploration and going down in the (illegal) catacombs of Paris.
I like to question how everything works, especially the mind and the universe. I hope that one day I'll get to work in some remote African reserve taking care of animals or as a shaman helping people realize that most of us "live in a state of life that calls for another way of living".
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
CS ambassador, hosting, surfing, organizing meetings, moderator of a few groups, CS greeter (welcoming new members), beta testing the site and smartphone app.
I surfed several couches here and there, hosted a LOT of surfers, organized & participated in many, many events. Always a great time. :)
The universe, fauna & flora, meteorological phenomenas, large metropoles and their societies, taking abstract pictures only I seem to find interesting, being surrounded by nature and last but not least alternate state of consciousness.
- urban exploration
- alternative lifestyles
Music, Movies, and Books
I don't think one day goes by without music. I listen to a lot of different style... blues, jazz, a bunch of electronic genres, rock, reggae, Indian slide guitars, Japanese folk music, stuff no one I know ever heard of. Right now hard industrial techno seems to be my favorite.
Some of my favorite writers are Hunter S. Thompson, Kurt Vonnegut, Philip K. Dick, Albert Camus, George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Jiddu Krishnamurti, Arthur C. Clarke, Jean de la Fontaine.
As for movies, I like many different genres but especially dystopian scifi films.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
4x4 through the Pamir highway, watching a sunset with a green flash in the middle of the Mediterranean sea, smoking pure N,N-Dimethyltryptamine, traveling with an Afghan army helicopter, paragliding in Corsica and driving many sports cars while working in 5 star hotels in Monaco.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can also easily show you how to make an origami bird, juggle with 3 balls, guide you through the 300km of catacombs under Paris, download most data you're looking for online, and of course how to properly insult someone in French!
