About Me


Travel or die trying...


Quite curious of everything especially culturally speaking, my favorite thing about travelling as strange as it may be is to watch landscapes marching in a bus, car, or in a plane, travel to the unknown, discover new places (boundaries of earth if possible!). I like meeting up cool people, seeing new faces from the world, comparing cultures even though I also like being a lonely guy overall.
I can switch from being unbearably talkative (hoping to know when to shut it up) to being boringly silent according to the envy...I'd say my trick is also to live as many things as possible before it's too late fighting against life clock (so to say at all costs even if done real quick...) I'm always trying to adapt myself to people I'm dealing with, behaviour wise, funny from time to time as much my langage skills allow me to do so...I just hope to spend a good moment with you...


It is better to regret something you have done than regret something you haven't...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Squatting flats...
No seriously be very welcomed to be shown around in Paris or whatever (provided I'm there of course...) to enjoy the trendy, hectic(with a good guide like me ;)) and sophisticated Parisian life...
Please step out from touristy tours and so on, just come and find me...


Grrrrreat! I met amazingly kind people who helped me out so much...Just people you can't usually come across even spending much time somewhere...


Well as a scientist I love science newspapers reading, nature marvels (I'm trying to be a biologist), biomedical science. Thank God (ooops not a scientific down-to-earth statement...), I can enjoy other things such as travelling above all, hiking, meeting new people sharing common state of mind, discovering new things but also things of the past (I love History, especially ancient History)...That might sound sophisticated and stuck-up but I appreciate most of all simple things, including superficial ones as well...
This an insight what I like the most I suppose, other than of course sleeping which is one the dearest and sweetest occupations on earth ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A travel to South America which was synonym of unprecedented freedom to me for 8 months!

Teach, Learn, Share

Is there anybody interested in tabbies???
Honestly speaking I have more to learn than to share...But I'm keener and keener on getting langages skills and discovering new cultures,places and new people ...
