I'm ready to host in Valencia!
Hi, I'm Ben! I'm originally from Paris but I'm moving to London very soon to feed squirrels, drink tea and start my first job (among other things). I just finished my studies in International Affairs and Environmental Sciences.
I truly love to learn new things everyday, I'm an information sponge who love to meet new people, share thoughts, tastes and ideas.
*replace this with a charming and witty sentence explaining why I don't have a proper self-summary even though it is crucial here*
Enjoying life, exploring and learning all sorts of things. Meeting new people whether it is to just have a laugh around a glass of wine or to share ideas for hours.
I would really like to change the world for the best and I'm taking a rather pragmatic approach to it.
Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I host whoever want to discover Valencia and I make the most I can do to help them enjoy the city.
I had a great time hosting a couple of people in Paris and had a wonderful experience couchsurfing in Italy.
A lot of things actually ; Cinema, Music, Litterature, History, Philosophy, Sciences, Architecture, Painting, Technology, Environment, Sustainability, Geocaching, etc.
I also love wine, cooking and building all sort of things (from a chair and an alarm clock to a drone and a 3D printer).
- wine tasting

Enseignez, apprenez, partagez
I can probably teach you french, basic electronics and software development, climate physics, some biology and maybe wine tasting if you're up for it ;) I love to know how stuff works, so I can also teach you some stuff I learned pursuing that.
