About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To enjoy life by traveling, meeting other people, other cultures, and having great experiences

ABOUT ME

Hi. I'm clovis. My home is now in New Caledonia, far away from my home town Paris... ;-)
I work, I travel, We work, we travel. It's like a drug !

In 2003, I did my first 'real' travel in Vietnam. After that, I still wanted to meet new cultures, new people.
Also, I went to New Zealand on my own to travel a year then to New caledonia for 3 months and in some countries in Oceania.
I worked 3 years in Paris where I could host for the first time CouchSurfers (thanks to Sylvain who told me this awesome website).
Then I went to TOGO in West Africa for more than a year to work as an international volunteer at the French Cultural Centre.
And now, I'm going to travel again... Where ? We'll see.

PHILOSOPHY

Discover cultures, musics, people ...
