About Me

Not accepting guests from CS at the moment. On the one hand because I'm moving to a new city, on the other hand because I might migrate to another CS-like site with a less for-profit inclination (CS has become "commercial" and I'm too much of a hipster to agree with that; thumb down, CS).

Peace, love, and the like to y'all =)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I mostly surfed, since my ability to host depends on the other people I live with (family at first, later roommates). Yet I hosted friends or friends of friends a couple times, but never through CS.


I surfed in some places in eastern Europe. Everybody I met through CS was very kind, and every surfing experience ended up in new friendship.


Meeting new peoples, travelling -> CS
Engineering, mechanics, ecology, biology... -> studies
Cars and motorbikes
Sports (bicycle, trekking)

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm addicted to french-speaking comics from my childhood, and never really grow up : I still spend time reading Gaston Lagaffe, Spirou, Tintin and Astérix, among others.I love all Pixar films, especially Monster & cie and Cars, and Louis de Funès' ones, like Rabbi Jacob's adventures and so on.I don't listen that much music, but I'm open to everything. Generally, I like books, music or films that makes you think.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Tout plein de trucs
Много. Очень много

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you various stuffs about science and engineering, teach you a language if you want to, just ask for what you want and I'll find something interesting for you to know. I really love to teach what I know (sometimes it can be boring, so beware ! ;) )I want to learn and share languages, life experiences, science and engineering, the list is very long.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A kitchen, a guided visit of Zurich, a cooked meal, a Swiss simcard during your stay in ZH (very useful !), a bike ride, stories, quality time... Depends on what you want and my calendar, really ^^
