After a year of walk (yes, walking by foot ) trough Middle East, India, Pakistan, and China in a minimalistic form of travel.

After changing identity in the french foreign legion,

After a year of silence playing dead to cut all attachments and find peace.

Something remain...

Still hungry for meeting original personalities, still walking on the path, still learning everything who pass by, still dreaming to change things for the best, still full of hope for the future, still looking for an answer.

To meet new ways of thinking, to learn from differents cultures and personality, to do what no one ever did and to avoid what most people do, to try to become a man of peace building for the future.

For all of that and even more we might share some of our time.


If something look impossible, try again.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sharing what I have, with simplicity and sincerity.


Many experiences, each one was special. Is good to be part of this tribe.

Having a quality time with people of quality.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Saw the room stand up after a conference,
Sleep with the talibans in the mountains of Pakistan,
Get saved from dying of thirst by two widows living under a tent in the desert of Jordan, this teach you humility....
Running 35 km in the french mountains, and then discover ashma by age 22...
Never touched a cigarette,
Jumping on a 2 degree fjord at 4 AM with the sunshine,
Making a world tour by foot.
Wake up at 3h Am with a Kalasnikosh close to me in Syria.
Never get drunk,
Crossing the Toros mountains under the snow in Turquey,
Fishing with dynamite with some fishermens in Sri Lanka.
Understanding how people really work and what individuals are really looking for.
Getting too hot to walk more than 20 step in a row and head sweating one drop per second in India.
Leave an girl academy after few month of work with the clothes wet from theirs teers in the mountains of Pakistan,
Walk out off a landslide alive in the Karakoram Highway.
Fight with an octopus.
Getting the face frozen close to the Russian border.
Making laugh an amphitheater of students in a chinese university.
Getting trough the selection of the french foreign legion.
Seen what human being are looking for.
Playing dead for 2 years until I find peace.
Concepting a new kind of homes.

But life is more than a hunting board of your past, the best is yet to come...
