Live with my eyes wide open.
Well, as I said before, I love to learn. I'm curious, open-minded and also very passionate. I like to discover different ways of living and meeting new people. It's crucial to me to try not to have prejudices against different cultures or lifestyles.
"All grown-ups were once children... but only few of them remember it."
Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince
I think it's essential to keep a look filled with amazement and wonder in relation to the world we have around us.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I contact other participants. And I surf their couches. And this way, I meet other Couchsurfers ! :-)
I surfed many couches in 2007, when I did a round-trip in Europe. I enjoyed every single one of them, because it made me meet so many wonderful persons and discover more about their countries. It's the best way to travel !!

Teach, Learn, Share
I think we can learn something new about ourselves and the world with every single person that we meet. That's also what makes Couchsurfing so great!
In risk of repeating myself, I think I have a good capacity of amazement, if I can say it like that, and I hope I can "contaminate" you with it :P !
