About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Play the guitar better

ABOUT ME

I am an open-minded person! I love to have a good time with my friends or new ones. I like calm gatherings and chitchat, at a friend's place, in a bar or outside when the weather is fine, and from time to time a crazy night out! I work during the week but I can definitely go out on evenings and week ends, for a beer, a concert or a theater.

PHILOSOPHY

My philosophy is that you should never think your friends (or companion) are acquired, never hesitate to contact them even after a very long time or if you have met them only once. Nor should it prevent you from meeting new people!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Now I am not counting the people I hosted anymore, but I have been Couchsurfing myself a couple of times and that was great everytime. I even met people who are now very good friends of mine! I usually try to go out with my guests for the kind of things I mentioned before, and if not, we'll just have a nice chat home when I come back from work.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have stayed in Budapest at a very nice young man's. It convinced me! Now I have even visited quite a few people who surfed my place...
But Couchsurfing gave me a lot more: a little sister, an impossible love, real new friends...

I also won the Couchsurfing Quizz at Lion's Bar in Paris with my team (2 French, 1 Argentinian, 1 Japanese, 1 Canadian) !!!

Interests

I am interested in meeting new people, especially from other countries.
I am also interested in languages. I like to read, watch movies and series, and speak in English and Spanish. Lately I began learning Romanian (that was for obvious reasons) and then Portuguese (for the same obvious reason) ;)
I am working in the nuclear industry, so generally, I tend to have big talks with people working or studying in the field of energy!
Last but not least, I have played the guitar for a year and half, and I can play/sing some songs for you.

Music, Movies & Books

There are just too many to say!
I'm mostly about rock but I am likely to enjoy some particular bands or singers in other styles.

Movies:
Children of men
Schindler's list
California Dreamin
The great dictator
The pianist
El secreto de sus ojos
Clockwork Orange
Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind
Inception
Tambien la lluvia
Inglorious Basterds
GroundHog Day
Abyss
Interview with a vampire
Leon
Vanilla Sky
12 Monkeys
Minority Report
Tokyo!
Extremely close and incredibly loud

I am thrilled by the series "Lost" though my favourite series ever is definitely "Six feet under".
The reason why I like a particular book is a subtle mix of atmosphere, style, story, and characters (if you are looking for something really... different, read "extremely close and incredibly loud"

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have been on the border of the Etna, for example!
Or crossing the Slovak-Polish border by the Risy Peak in the Tatras!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to make a crumble or a banana and apple pie. If you want to improve your french, I can definitely do that.
If you could teach me some more cooking, I would be delighted!
I definitely like to share some guitar playing and be taught some tricks!
