About Me

Couchsurfing sucks. It should be free for everyone.
Couchsurfing investors, you destroy the Couchsurfing spirit and the community!

Feel free to contact me on Facebook or Instagram if you look for a place to crash in Bordeaux or Abidjan!

Old profile:

Hey! You don't need to read all my profile, but please, don't copy paste your request if you want to stay with me 😉 I often accept last minute / emergency requests. I can host you and give you the necessary to enjoy Bordeaux! I studied medicine and pharmacy at the university of Bordeaux. I founded a startup, Meditect (a solution to ensure authenticity and traceability of medicines in developing countries). One of my main goal is to strengthen public health and empower patients in developing countries.

My main hobby is climbing the highest mountains around the world.

In Bordeaux, I'm inviting people to share a human experience but I can also host guests who only expect to find an accomodation in Bordeaux! (If it's the case, you can find me on airbnb 😉) I appreciate smily, open minded and curious people who like to share knowledge and experiences. Males, females, solo travelers and couples are welcomed to my flat! Motivated newbies or experienced surfers also. No worries if you are a party animal coming back late!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I want to meet people from the place I visit. Hostels are fine but you only meet travelers in there! Couchsurfing is a real human experience for me, I receive surfers as I receive friends, give them all the necessary tricks to visit Bordeaux and to save as much money as possible, guide them if I have time to and globally help them as much as I am able to. I was helped a lot when I was in Nepal, people are really generous, not like in France, so I really try to bring some generosity to travelers!

Teach, Learn, Share

I CAN TEACH:
Useful sentences in French, play the Saxophone, where to find hidden spots/weird and creepy things in Bordeaux!

I'D LIKE TO LEARN:
About your culture, your language... Anything is good to learn, whatever else you could teach me!

Life is too short: keep discovering and enjoying!

What I Can Share with Hosts

SURFING: a confortable and warm place to sleep in the center of Bordeaux. VISITING BORDEAUX: Advices to visit touristic or non touristic Bordeaux/ Addresses of best wines bars downtown/ Addresses of affordable restaurants (6 to 25 euros/person)/ Addresses to taste wines and spirits for free during the weekend. ALCOHOLS I consider talking while drinking a good glass of wine or whatever is the best way to know each others. Sometimes I prepare my own cocktails in my flat! OTHERS: More seriously, I am an easy going guy and I think it's impossible to get some problems with me :-)
