Join Couchsurfing to see Benjamin’s full profile. It’s free!
AS a couchsurfer, Ben is amazed by the number of open-minded people ready to share moments with perfectly strangers, most of the time memorable visitors. He likes relaxed breakfast-chat, sharing and learning local tips, cultural experiences, and unplaned surprises! AS a friend, he is often deep and curious, looking for real relationship more than superficial. Good discussion about politics, activism, emotions, travels and geography (of course) are then always welcome. He is nevertheless most of the time looking for edonistic moments!AS an almost-geographer, Ben does NOT know all capitals by heart (but will be glad to make new "capitals Jokes" with you). He's rather fascinated by the complexity of the relation between this weird specie called "human" and his playing ground, the planet heart.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
By being a couchsurfer?
And hosting!! (Donc hesitate to send me a request!!)
For the moment, I surfed in many countries(Scoland, France, Corsica, Spain, Marroco, switzerland, etc..) and there were all good and memorable experiences.
I like to travel without plans defined (isn't normal???), by hitch-hiking when it's physiquely possible (dont like to have my thumb frozen at -40C). Climbing is difinitively my sport, espacialy rock climbing, even if it is /)$!"% expensive. I like to read a good book confortable in my fraded sofa.At the moment, I'm very interested in all alternative way of growing food like permaculture, natural farming, new system of distribution, self-suffisancy, etc. A more sustainable/human food production exist, so let's spread it and learn more about it. Hope the rural couchsurfing will get bigger! Undoubtedly, I love to laugh.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
In general, meeting locals is the best thing that can happen to me while I'm travelling. Even though, here are few things I will remember for long time:- Fishing in Casamance(Senegal) in pirogues with locals friends.- Trekking in Tarroudant (Marroco).- Climbing Ben Nevis (UK).
Teach, Learn, Share
Sharing begins by talking with others, so I want to learn languages with all their subtilities!
For the moment, I'm perfectionning my english and spanish.
I would be a pleasure to teach you french.
