About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Just want to meet cool people from all around the world. I need to share with and learn from everybody in that world!

ABOUT ME

I am an easy going man who likes to share my free time with people who like to have fun. I am a person you can trust even if you don't know me yet! I think I have always had the CS spirit within me : the will to know, learn from and help people without expecting anything from them but their friendship.

PHILOSOPHY

Do or Do not, there is no try (Master Yoda) -

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've been meeting people from everywhere on Earth for more than 15 years. I am glad to be a member of the CS community in Aix en Provence. A community I have always looked for at the world level. I am quite active now in the CS community of Aix en Provence and I do my best to propose good ideas and help people who will contact me. I like to share a dinner with my guests when they stay at my place and I want them also to share good recipes from their area because I can't cook every nights... that's a part of the exchange. It's important to keep in mind that a couchsufer's home is not a free hostel.
