About Me

My name is Leo, I'm a 21yo french geeky sort of person currently living in Germany. I am a French teaching assistant in a school in Franfurt, and really enjoying it! I'm also a camp leader & coordinator/trip organizer for linguistic camps and a master student in cultural studies (in Montpellier, France, thanks to the distant learning system).

About me hmmm. I'm a very open-minded person (didn't see that one coming, did ya) who really loves traveling (this one either booh). I'm also into photography and filming, and arts in general. I like learning languages too, and I'm getting more confident with my English. I'm still working on my German though, because I really suck. I'm learning the American Sign Language by myself, but it's a bit complicated considering the fact that there are no schools to learn it in France (we've got our own sign language, which is sad, in my opinion).

I'm a vegeterian, have been for two years, so I'm always keen on getting new recipes and learning new tricks to avoid animal products! Not a veggie nazi though, I don't care what you're eating as long as you don't care about me not having the same habits as yours.

As for where I've been travelling so far, I went to 10+ countries in Europe, to China and to Canada, and to the Reunion Island. I'm mostly backpacking by myself, but I enjoy the company of fellow travelers too,

I couchsurfed during a month is Canada, and a month in Europe, and almost always had amazing experiences! I also did some couchsurfing in China. I'm not much of a shy person, but I can get really introvert when traveling by myself, and I like opening up a little bit and sharing stuff with people from all over the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

I read everything, from William Burroughs to Oscar Wilde, and from Amelie Nothomb to E. E. Cummings. Everything i can find.

I listen to a lot of different kinds of music, mostly Pop/rock, punk/rock, and electro music. My tastes have been challenged by my girlfriend, I've found myself listening to a wider range of music, recently.

As for the movies, well i watch so many different things for me and for my classes that i couldn't even make a list.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swimming with hundreds of colorful fish around me has definitely been a great experience, and the fjords in Norway were breathtaking. Biking drunk and stoned at 4am in Amsterdam, sleeping on a beach in Nice and being woken up by a huge storm, cancelling all my plans to go to another country with people I met on a train ...

Teach, Learn, Share

Hmm. I could teach you french if you wanted me to, and i could help you out with taking pictures (maybe)!! I'm into Street Art, so we can go and paint walls together if you're feeling adventurous. I'm not that much of a good cook but I'm learning and trying out new recipies all the time. I can sing and i enjoy learning new things and listening to people so yeay!
