Join Couchsurfing to see Adrien’s full profile. It’s free!
Hey there ! I'm Adrien Delaby, a 24 years old backpacker. I'm from the sweet city of Lille in the North of France, where people are warm and love beers ! I just finished my master in International Business and Entrepreneurship. I would love to create my own company someday, inspired from alternative way of living, but for that I will need founds, and ideas! For now, I decided to travel for few years, to learn about alternative life, pratice my music and fullfill my passion for cultural exchange !
I'm a smiling positive person, always looking for new social interactions, cultural insight and fun time !
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm couchsurfing cause it is to me the best way to get the new social interaction i'm looking for. It is based on mutual interest, trust and international interaction and gives a totally different experience to my trips.
I love the idea of sharing for no cost, It is one of the alternative way of living i get inspired by.
I studied International business in order to get the chance to work in different countries, with different cultures, and I did ! I previously lived in Tokyo, Shanghai, Paris and Mexico, for 6 months each ! All of those places were amazing to discover and I can speak about it for hours. (try me !)
I am a multi-instrumental musician, always looking for inspiration from places to places. Trying to compose songs about the country i visited. (Here is one about Tokyo ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xm1WTOBfUCw )
And i'm always looking for musician to play with !
Apart from music, I recently started Photography. I'm particulary interested in the street photo of cultural daily life in different countries. But i'm just starting so I try a bit of everything ! (here is my Flickr : https://www.flickr.com/photos/152633223@N06/albums )
- music festivals
Music, Movies, and Books
It's pretty hard to name only one favortie music... So I'll just name three bands that inspired me a lot in the past : Radiohead, Gorillaz, and The White Stripes. Three completely different band that are lead by very important artist that i admire.
About movies, I've probably seen Forest Gump at least 20 times. I love the naive way of living he has and how it brings him to amazing places. Last best movie was "The hunt of the wilderpeople", a New Zealander movie with amazing story and humor!
I went only back to reading two years ago, so i don't have a huge collection. but The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss is an incredibly well written story telling book!
Teach, Learn, Share
Some cool proverbs that tell a lot about some countries I visited !
-Mexico " Por todo mal, Mezcal, por todo bien, tambien !"
- China - " you have two eyes, two ears, but only one mouth, so use them accordingly ! "
-Cuba "If your body ask for salsa, give him salsa
If your body ask for rhum, give it rhum
If your body ask for women, give it women
If your body ask for work, you can't do everything ! "
-Japan "one who smile rather than rages is always the stronger"
