About Me

I'm really bad at these. Because I constantly overthink what to write to describe myself decently.

So I'll go straight to the big picture : I am a 24-year-old solo traveller currently trying to have a taste of a lifestyle that I've been looking to adopt since quite a while now : the digital nomad.

As we speak, I currently own a wordpress website/blog related to my travels, but with a darker and more
literary twist. Instead of doing fill ups with ''5 reasons to go there'' or ''Top 6 cafés of f*ck off town'', I am digging through the underground places (bars, concert venues, castles, etc.) and the woods to find inspiration for spine-chilling short texts and breathtaking landscapes.

To prevent obvious advertisement, I won't give a link to my website through this platform. Me explaining my website to you IRL will be much more pleasant. :)

Blog aside, I am also travelling for all the clichés regarding introspection as well !

I am landing in Berlin on January 30th and six days later, I am free to go wherever I want. But Poland and Estonia ARE on my list.

But... what type of person am I ? :
Well, many says I'm a ''comedian''. I have a really non-filtered, verbally expressive attitude. But this doesn't mean I'm an extrovert, because I'm not. I'm actually an introverted person with some trust issues. It sounds worse than it actually is tho, but it had to be said. On the plus side, I am very discreet and will respect someone's privacy at all times !
I know that hosting a perfect stranger can be quite stressful, so I want to make sure you don't make a mistake by hosting me.

My talents/hobbies ? :
- I can do pretty sick death growls if you're into metal. I'm practising a lot of Travis Ryan clean/goblinesque highs. I can also play the guitar and drum a little but it's pretty basic.

- I'm a good sport. I like competition. So sports, video games... GLHF !

- Back home, I also do deliveries on a bike with Ubereats. So if you have some sick bike trails to show me, sign me up !

- 420 friendly.

- I love deep talks.

- Atmospheres are love, atmospheres are life.

So yeah. That's about it. I could say countless other things, but it would kind of spoil the entire thing. But rest assured, I am a polite, funny, avant-garde and introverted guy who just wants to see the world from privileged perspectives. And I believe couchsurfing adds to that experience.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Like I said. I'm starting the digital nomad lifestyle. With a backpack and a small budget. Since I'm looking at a 3-4 month trip, I'm trying to cut costs as much as possible so I can save up for food and last-minute shelters. I think hostels and couchsurfing are the most affordable places to crash and the most interesting in terms of personality. Meeting different types of people with different backgrounds at one place is incredibly exciting to me ! Like... we can have very opposite reasons to why we are where we are and yet, we're still there !
That is amazing.

I don't think I need to elaborate on that one. Meeting people of various backgrounds and saving money are my reasons, and the ones of many other travellers I'm pretty sure ;)
