About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Stay out of the comfort zone. Meet, discuss, share and listen to stories & experiences !

ABOUT ME

Moved to Vancouver, Canada for the incredible outdoors opportunities.
I love outdoor sports, camping, hiking, cycling, driving, sailing, mountains, seas, forests, bears, whales, dogs among other things.

PHILOSOPHY

Be fair to others. Be true. life is short and needs to be lived fully. Do what inspires you, and have a plan to achieve higher goals if that is your mission. Enjoy life & the experiences of others! The good things in life: a good meal, good friends & a glass of wine after exploring our beautiful world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I was very active in the past, both hosting and surfing. Life got busy but I still host once in a while & travel from time to time. Always love to meet people from around the world and hear about their amazing experiences.
In 2017 I'm taking a break to travel the South Pacific on a sailboat and occasionally couchsurf - best way to meet locals!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Stayed in Canada & the US & Mexico with some very nice people. Met a lot of CSer @ weekly events, BBQ, hosting, surfing, etc... hosted many great people. In Vancouver, I met a lot of great people when I arrived, some of them I feel lucky to count as close friends - my friend Armel who hosted me on my first week moving here now lives close by and we've both been in Van almost 10 years after succesfully settling down! I feel lucky to have met people like him through CS.
