About Me

"Less is more".

I am a thoughtful and creative person from ... pretty small.... Belgium, living one step from France. I am a fan of hiking, nature, long bike trips, swimming, reading and repairing my bike. Besides doing sport, I like singing while imitating the voice of the singer. It's fun and quite relaxing. I can whistle tunes like no one will ever do. I said whistle not singing haha... I am currently improving my Italian and Spanish... sometimes by songs. And last but not least, I don't smoke and love blond beers (Grimbergen, Leffe, Duvel, Chimay, Westmalle tripel, Brugse zot, Omer ...)

_____________In Spanish:
Soy Christophe. No soy Cristopher, Christopher, Cristofer, Kristof, o Cristóbal! :) Nací en los años ochenta en la ciudad del gato. En qué ciudad nací? Solamente puedes adivinar una vez! ... Si, exacto, fue en Yper. Y todavía vivo en Bélgica en Wervik. Es una pequeña ciudad cerca de Brujas, Gante, Yper y Lila en Francia. Mi primer idioma es el neerlandés de Bélgica.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm here to get in touch with people and to pass a great time while discovering the surroundings, local food specialties or to practice languages.

Está bueno conocer gente y escuchar sus historias de vida.

Interests

I like walking or making a bike trip. I like to see the surrounding preferably far away from cars or industry at a good pace instead of flying by or through.

_____________In Spanish:
Me gustan leer, nadar, cantar, los largos paseos a paso lento para disfrutar de los alrededores, las excursiones en bici y reparar cosas (p.e. la llanta pinchada). No me gusta la comida rápida, por eso cocino mucho.

Les Misérables (Victor Hugo), deux extraits:
1) "Au bout de quelques minutes, il s'est jeté sur la pièce d'argent, l'a prise, s'est mis debout et a regardé au loin de la plaine. Ses yeux cherchaient dans toutes les directions. Il était comme une bête sauvage qui avait peur et qui cherchait un lieu sûr."
2) "Elle avait reçu ce nom comme elle recevait l'eau des nuages sur son visage quand il pleuvait. On l'avait appelée la petite Fantine. Personne n'en savait autre chose."

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was a kid I made once an igloo for three persons with snow with my brother. That was in the winter when it snowed for days in a row. We removed the toys from a box and filled the box with snow and that way we made the ice blocks for the wall. We were already started before our mother it had noticed. :)

Things to do?
- watching aurora borealis,
- a trip with Huskies in Norway,
- driving down the whole coast of Cuba with a car,
- being very close to volcanoes in Iceland,
- a hot air balloon ride in South Africa or a safari trip,
- snorkelling at the coast of Curaçao,
- riding a camel in the Sahara of Morocco, ...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some Dutch words, useful expressions or tongue twisters. Or some dance steps of salsa or bachata can be shown. Or I can just speak English with you. Or explaining and playing the bluffing game Skull ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKTVbtuRkrE). This game is easy to pick up and fun for all ages. Or we can watch some sitcoms.

The mind and mood of a person can change so fast like the weather. So don't be unhappy when it rains...?

_____________In Spanish:
Puedo enseñarte unas palabras del neerlandés de Bélgica y algunos pasos de salsa y bachata. También podría contarte muchos trucos para encontrar el norte cuando estes perdido sin GPS. Nunca se sabe! ;) jaja Estoy bromeando, pero sé muchos trucos :)
