About Me


To Live as many lifes as I can in my own life


I'm a curious guy, fond of touring bicycles and sailing boats. Both represent for me not only a way of living and discovering the world but also a medium of personal development and self-accomplishment. Otherwise I really like to learn foreign languages. I appreciate to meet people who are dynamic, sportive, adventurous, curious, enthusiastic, creative, artistic... and who can take a certain distance on their daily life. I also think that in each of us, there is something unique, something which is the result of our past, history, experiences, thinking, education...And I like that.
For sure it is not "all about me" but it is really enough. My story is only 1/ 6 000 000 000 of all the lifes and experiences there are on this planet. So let's talk about you, him, she, them now :-)


"Life is like riding a bicycle - in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving."
"Naviguer, c'est accepter les contraintes que l'on a choisies. C'est un privilège. La plupart des hommes subissent les obligations que la vie leur a imposées." (Eric Tabarly, navigateur)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well, I like to host/ be hosted by people when possible, share with them i bite of time and life and participate to the CS event of the city where I live when I have the time.


Since I discovered this website through the bike centre of the university of Guelph, I'm fond of couch surfing and I really like the principe of couch surfing which facilitates interactions between people and cultures all around our great planet earth. :-)Above all what i like until now with couch surfing, is that it makes me more optimistic about the human kind: all around the world, it exists nice, cultivate, different and generous people. And That is important.


I'm interest in almost everything which make our world better to live.

I'm fond of movies. Some of my preferred movies are The Deer Hunter, Heat, Leon, Nikita, The great blue, the big lebowski, trainspotting, Romanzo Criminale, L.A Confidential, Bullit, The Getaway, l'armée des ombres, Gandhi, Amadeus, le pianiste, this is England...Music: Radiohead, Coldplay, Bruckner, Miles Davis, Alain Souchon, The Beatles, Schuman, Bach, Mozart...But I'm open to every styles. Books: la mer est ronde, pour qui sonne le glas, besoin de liberté, les chouans...but I also really enjoy to read all kind of book (except about maths...:-()
