Getting the Luxemburgish CS community back together
READ THIS BEFORE CONTACTING ME if you need a couch. Seriously, do it, or I will not host you. There are just TWO things I ask of you:
1) Include the PASSWORD in your request so I know you have read this. The password is on this page, and should be very easy to find. No password, no couch.
2) DO NOT SEND ME MESSAGES, use the "Send CouchRequest to Pierre Blondelle!" button, because most of the time, I do NOT have access to my CS inbox. If you have to contact me urgently, TEXT me: 00352661377059. Of course, you still have to send a proper couchrequest, texting is only a last resort.
Text me anytime, but do NOT call me, because I can be working any day, including week-ends, from 7 am to 11 pm. I'm very sorry for this, but I won't answer private calls from the office.
I am quite the extrovert kind. I want to do all I can to enjoy life as much as I can. Nothing is impossible, I WILL travel everywhere I want, and meet lots of different people.
I am VERY outgoing. While I prefer going out in bars and music cafés rather than discos, I will still go there with you if that's what you like. I like change, so wherever you want to go, I'm in. I'm a Yesman, and I love it.
Basically, I went from shy/introverted to confident/extroverted in less than two years. I have wasted enough time, so I go out whenever I can (which is practically every day) and can't resist doing crazy shit when the opportunity arises.
I say yes to everything that doesn't hurt anyone. But I still have common sense, so no, I won't buy you a Ferrari or kick that tattooed biker over there.
I'd rather have remorse than regrets.
Try to do to people what you would like them to do to you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I couchsurf whenever I can, and spread the word. I meet as many people as I can, and therefore don't sleep much :)
I love showing people around. I've created Google maps of Luxembourg for them to use when I can't guide them myself (if I'm working), and can ask some friends to come with us on short notice. There's the Batsignal to call Batman, and the Hatsignal to call Hatman & Co. Try it!
I also create funny and unusual meetings, such as the All Belgian Food Meeting, the Paintball & Barbecue Meeting, the Random Location Meeting (aka geohashing), Pub Crawls, the Floating Picnic, and so on.
Finally, I'm always the one jumping on a bike to go pick up lost couchsurfers. I'm surprised you don't already have my phone number!
I have hosted people from Italy, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, China, Poland, Czech Republic, the USA, England, Sweden, Malaysia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Argentina, Hong-Kong, Mexico and Brazil. I've been hosted in Brussels, London, Trier, Lyon, Liège, Luxembourg, Strangnas (Sweden), Zagreb, Ljubljana, Praha, Olomouc, Brno, Pescara, Istanbul, and have been to meetings in Luxembourg, Arlon, Vianden, Trier, Brussels, Liège, Namur, Saint Léger, Metz, Insenborn, Olomouc, Brno, and I probably forgot something!
Seeing everything, everywhere! I love to meet new, interesting, different or strange people. I have just too much interest for everything to excel at anything (except Street Fighter II and staring contests). I used to do some parkour, and hurt myself quite often, so I'm a bit more careful now. Still, I can show you a few -safe- tricks.
Music, Movies, and Books
I couldn't possibly list them all. But I could share a lot, my hard drives are stuffed with -litterally - hundreds of movies and series, my bookshelf is too small for all the books I still have to read, and the same goes with music: I stil have dozens of albums I haven't listened to yet, of all kinds of music.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've been to Brazil! Whoo! I've travelled all around Belgium, seen the best of my country! I've hitchhiked from Luxembourg to South of France with a friend, twice.
I decided someday to just say yes to almost everything. I try to still stick to this decision (except when I'm broke), and I have never had so many friends!
I was one of the many zombies on the Zombie Day in Brussels, on 24th November, 2007 and in 2010. Great events!
I've been ice skating on the frozen sea in Sweden.
I've been travelling by car, train, and bicycle in France, Switzerland, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia and Czech Republic during two weeks, hosted by friends only, happily visiting everything I could on my weird folding bicycle.
And now, I'm back from Czech Republic, after spending 9 months there and making lots of friends! I live in Luxembourg, and I'm loving it!
Teach, Learn, Share
I can show you around the city, of course.
I can show you some tricks in judo. This could be useful someday, and it's always fun when a 50 kilos girl realizes how easy it is to throw a 70 kilos guy on the floor! I won't teach anything that might actually hurt someone, though. Or I could also show you how to run on a wall, do a cat leap, or a lazy vault, silly stuff like that. You're welcome to show me more!
The password you're looking for is Maitrank :)
I can also find many things on the internet, or help you make your computer run better. I've also got a bunch of free (legal) games.
And, of course, I can show you interesting places in my hometown, in Belgium in general, and in Luxembourg.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Beer, maitrank, some food, some of my time, a ride to a hitchhiking point, etc.
