About Me

The first thing I'm used to say is "hairy", but maybe it will not be very helpful...

I'm (usually trying to be) a funny person, talkative.

I like to share time with people playing, trekking, organising week-ends or just chatting.
And I love to travel!

I'm not a night-club lover.
But sometimes...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I host people, when I have a home... (who said : not often?)

I share travel stories, good jokes, good recipes, pictures, maps and out of beaten tracks places to explore.

Until 2012, I mostly hosted people in Lobito, Angola.

The persons I hosted where travellers that crossed Africa (or more), and succeed to have their entry visa... which is not so easy!
I shared as much as I can the knowledge of Angolan countryside.

I started to be a surfer in September 2012 for our long trip trough Asia.
And I continued during our African car travel, since November 2013 till September 2014.

I'm now preparing my next couch to host YOU!


Travel, by any mean.
... I prefer wheeled vehicles, sure, but I have 2 legs, and I can use them...

I'm fond of Desert, with or without sand!
And remote places.
I love exploring places where you can think you're the first person passing there.
I usually travel out of the beaten tracks.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books :
mainly Sci-Fi :
Asimov, K. Dick, and other americans writers...
And I just discovered a French one : Alain Damasio, that I would recommend.
Basically, I can read anything, I just need to take the time to do it.

Movies/TV :
Well, last time I watched a TV-screen was before your birth, and last time I went to theatre... euh..., I don't remember.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

2 days in jail in Angola... priceless : No travel agency proposed this trip!

Went in the desert, alone, stuck my car, came back walking.
It was just a 25 km trek in a sandy river bed.

Adopted the "slow traveller" attitude :
Travelled from Japan to Cambodia, spending at least one month in each country.
Travelled from Cape Town to Mombasa by car, spending 2 months in each country.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach the things I know around the place I'm living or the places I've visited.

Learn :
How people are "thinking" in other culture/countries,
Where I should go and search for a job after this trip.
more about car mechanics.

Share :
Good times!
Travellers advices.
Then, about Angola, show the "dark side" of the country, where you shouldn't find any foreigner.
