About Me

As a kid, growing up one leg in Africa and the other in Europe, I was always curious. Curious about people, their cultures, and about what moved them in life.
I've left a part of my soul in every place that I've lived in, but for some reason the more I grew up, the more I wanted to see what the world could offer, and to explore every part of it!
Maybe one day I'll want to drop my anchor somewhere and call it home, but for now I'm happy that home is wherever I'm stopping on my way.

After cycling from Belgium to Senegal (my two nationalities), I am now managing the construction of a school for young girls in the Sine Saloum Region

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Free Wi-Fi

Interests

I appreciate many things, among which are architecture (conveniently it's also my job), science in general, phylosophy, sports (even though a recent climbing accident refrained that part) and also sketching things around me. What I enjoy above all is facing the unknown in all its forms. (Appart from the monsters under my bed)

Music, Movies, and Books

I appreciate pretty much every kind of music, from jazz to techno, passing by metal and Rap... One of my favorites activities is wander around looking for new musical experiences...
Same goes for cinema.
I'm not a huge book reader, but I often carry a book in my backpack (although I recently started listening to audiobooks, wich helped to squeeze some literature into my days)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Having been able to be amazed by most things I've been doing so far...
Probably also surviving my own sense of humour

Teach, Learn, Share

I believe that everyone has something to teach or share, but the hardest job is on the listener side. Personally working hard on learning that I don't know everything.
I can still pass on some of the few skills I've acquired, such as watercolor, my love for cooking or even a few steps of salsa/bachata!
