About Me


Share, learn, improve and find my way within this world!! Let's go travelling around the world !


I am glad I opened my life and heart to CS and my house to strangers from all around the world :)! I feel it restored my faith in this world and its people !
For sure travelling did its part as well but I am glad I can open my house to sharing and open-minded humans.

I am an easy going guy, laid back and ready for anything. I am a passionate, love new experiences, travels, discovering cultures and people, love observing the world I am living in and try to enjoy it in the most positive possible way.

Soon I'll be on my way for some more adventures :)!
I'd like to share what I live, thoughts, people and adventures:
Go and have a look (sorry only in French for now)!
Here are my 2014 plans :)


Want to go beyond my limits
"Tu dormiras quand tu seras mort" (you'll sleep when you'll be dead)
Carpe diem
Respect !
