About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Life is too short to waste time, taking life easy and enjoy it

ABOUT ME

Do not trust what is writen nearby about my age, I am also sometimes 10 years old now. Wich on average is something like 23 or 24y old :)

I am a crazy french guy who spend all his childhood 2km far from German border. Do not ask me how many times I was abroad, I do not remember. :) I went to work in germany one summer as a young adult, crossing border twice a day, yes commuting over the border is quite commun in my home region, and when I was a teen, I was used to go all the summer in the swimming pool in germany, by bike :) And did I mentionned that as a kid with primary school we went from our village to the nearest town in germany by feet along the Rhine River, just guessed who proposed this idea to the teacher

I have two legs, two arms, one trunk, and one head. But I do sometimes loose it.

I do not know what to write here. Thus :)

PHILOSOPHY

Carpe Diem

Somo moto * Life is too short to waste time, taking life easy and enjoy it * A 1000km journey starts with one step * If pig could fly, I would be the flight leader

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am on the learning curve again, I got lost every time they change something here and I still miss sometimes the CS chat (I found my first host in USA on it) :-)

I have done quite crazy things with Couchsurfing, I cannot write everything :)

In 2010, I have hosted twice two people for one day in Stara Zagora despite working quite a lot on a construction site and while staying in an appartment hotel

I organised the first CS meeting in Knoxville, TN, while still being in France. I really meet great people there.

I helped CS public relation by finding some way to get what they were looking for. a picture of an american surfing on a couch :-)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have couched five times * 2 days in New Jersey during a short trip in USA. * 1 day in Strasbourg for a CS meeting * 2 days in Nashville, TN * 1 day in Besançon * 1 day in Lausanne (CH) * 8 days in Buenos Aires (AR) * And many more :)

I hosted * 2 girls from Canada * a french couple * a swedish couple with their ukrainian friend * a girl from USA * a costa rican guy doing a bike trip in Europe * and many more * Maybe You :o) ?
