About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find Waldo ...

ABOUT ME

I often travel for business (in North America most of the time). I work for a major U.S. company ... I withhold the name, but there are some clues in my profile. Each time I travel, I'd like to see only key points, or tourist attractions, but I prefer see how local people live and handle their daily lifes.

***OUTDATED
Ok I add some bullets because some of you ask me to do. I never go clubbing, I don't like the "Paris Champagne", I'm done with lounge bars, and yes, I know must of the pubs in Paris.

Most of time, I just accept last minute request. But you can try anyways :)

PHILOSOPHY

My expectations when I travel are very different from others I think. I don't take pictures, I don't buy tourist stuff compulsively (but some postcards).
I want te see how people live their daily lifes.
Please insert this key word in your request : BRCT otherwise.. You'll see, I'll respond with "it sounds cool ;)"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I take part in both hosting and couchsurfing (kinda in pause for the hosting now). I'm not often at home, even when I host couchsurfers. Nevertheless, I always manage to do something with them :) So, I'm not the perfeKt guide you're looking for. But I share my flat, dinner and breakfast :)
If you are searching for a full time available host, I'm not the one...
I can't handle as many beers as a german, but I'm down to go out for one.
You can find me on the Last Minute Request group beacuse I like to help travelers in need.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hum, I have slept on the sofa at my grandmother's house. It was great so I decided to try other couches...

Oh, as I promised to someone met at the 20th of a very crowded but unknown street. I'm so not cool...

But Kevin is!

Interests

I love sports. I play basket ball and one of my dream is to see a real NBA game (I DID!!!!!!!!!!!! -note I regularly do it now). But I'm interested in everything ! Every time I visit a new place and meet new people, I discover great things!
Ok, since my friends requested it, I crafted a list...

Here it is. I like...
- basketball
- chilling home
- chilling in a pub
- chilling in a park
- chilling in a basketball game Uh? this is why there are two benches around.. I guess...
- beer
- beer
- coffee... ehhh tea now, I quit coffee one year ago
- beer
- sushi!!!
- small talks with taxi drivers
- not to talk to the taxi drivers
- gossiping about French folks
- terrible movies
- all above at the same time! (well, except for the taxi thing, it's not compatible)

Music, Movies & Books

I like music, all kind of music... But you must prevent me from singing... I'm awfull. Anyway, I sing only when I'm drunk ;)
Regarding books, I love reading, I think my fav book is Where is Waldo.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I saw the pacific ocean... Yes I know, sometimes I'm such a pussy... I cried...

My tourist 2 cents for normal people who travel in France :
- In a French shop, do not expect that a vender will take care of you!
- At the restaurant, tips are already included!
- Taxi drivers speak French... And sometimes, only French eventhough they picked up up at the international airport.
- Do not be surprised if you see €7.50 for a pinte... Welcome to Paris :)
