Listening to other people's stories while writing my own.
Benoît here, a French guy that landed his feet on planet Earth 34 years ago (ouch!).
I constantly challenge myself to new challenges, enjoy the simplest joys in life and I have a real passion for people and their paths.
I aspire to be a (script)writer so that's probably why.
I want to explore more ways of being creative too.
I'm curious about mainly anything so you're on with really long chats with me hehe ;)
Seize the day, you only live once!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm still very new to this, and very excited about the opportunities to meet interesting and cool people from around the world!
One of my best holidays was undoubtedly staying with different CSers for two weeks in Tokyo back in summer 13. Now that's an experience I'd love to repeat, so much laughter, fun and discoveries!
Creative writing, photography, independent cinema, museums, strolls, J-Pop, worldwide literature, coffee shops...
Music, Movies, and Books
Let's try to be selective here or I could go on and on and on and on (see my point? lol)
Our Little Sister, Hirokazu Kore-Eda
Departures, Takita Yojiro
A Chinese Ghost Story, Ching Siu Tung
The Beat My Heart Skipped, Jacques Audiard
Tori Amos, Lara Fabian, Jpop, Classical, Jazz... So, so many

A Series of Unfortunate Events, by Lemony Snicket :0)
Teach, Learn, Share
I've completed this year a degree in teaching French as a foreign language. The initial idea behind this was to move abroad and start anew in a whole different career. Life had me stay in the UK (for very joyful reasons) but the prospect of moving abroad, especially in Asia, is still in a corner of my mind.
It makes me happy when I can share conversations with people who love learning languages as much as I do. I am presently doing a weekly language exchange with a Japanese friend. His French level is way more advanced than my Japanese, which makes me strive to improve, day by day.
