About Me

Hi there!

My name is Augustin. I'm studying economics in a French business school. I'm about to finish my master in a few months. My last academic experience is in Istanbul, Turkey where I live for 6 months. So far, my experience is much more vibrant and unique than I expected: the landscapes are sensational, the people I met are great.

I am open to new travels and new encounters. After discovering Couchsurfing, I quickly became addicted to it. Whenever I travel I am disappointed when I don't use Couchsurfing. So often in these situations, I try to improvise and knock on doors or hitchhike around.

I have 3 passions: international cuisine, outdoor sports and drumming.

-I can cook typical french meals and I would be very interested to learn cooking on Couchsurfing and share my skills with my guest/host. For me it's more than a hobby but I still have a lot to learn. Cooking is an endless experience.

-I love outdoor sports: sailing, hiking, cycling (and I'm also a big fan of football, tennis, handball). Combining visits with my passion for sports is a must. Doing it with the people I meet on Couchsurfing is a dream.

- Percussion: I have played in several bands and I love discovering new artists at festivals. I love rock music with different influences (such as Turkish rock bands) and many more.

Finally, I am open to all discussions. Talking about our cultural connections is something I enjoy. I've learned a lot from traveling with Couchsurfing and I'm sure I'm just at the beginning of my learning.

To communicate, I speak French, English fluently. I can also speak German at a medium-high level (I understand easily but speak slowly)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am here to meet people, have a great time with my guests or as a guest, laugh, learn, cook, share, debate, discover new spaces, doing party and sleep...
I'm here to share what I have and most important to learn from meeting locals. The world is a book and those who do not travel with Couchsurfing read only one page
