About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel the world to understand myself better and answer questions such as Who am I? What do I want to do with my life? This kind of things...

ABOUT ME

I like to smile, I like to laugh, I like to live life fully... I don't want to wake up one day and say to myself "why didn't you do that a long time ago?" ...

I like to party, I like to drink good beer and good wine, I like to eat good food. And I LOVE to SHARE all that (because being alone sucks...).

I worked and travelled to a couple of countries in the past 4 years. I realy enjoyed it. It was the best time of my life. But I felt like I needed to go back to France to get closer to my family and friends.

Wherever you are from, wherever you are going, I will always be ready to welcome you and to show you around. CS gave me so much. I am now ready to give back.

PHILOSOPHY

"It's good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters, in the end."
- Ursula Le Guin

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
― John Lennon

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I share my experiences at CS events and with CS guys I meet everywhere.
I am planning in organising event back home very soon, I enjoyed it so much abroad I really feel like giving back now !

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My favorite couchsurfing experience:
Two days around Yosuj (Western Iran) with 40 crazy iranian guys ! Singing, dancing in the bus ! Sharing our cultures ! An AMAZING experience !!!

My favorite couchsurfing quote (exactly my feeling):
"I joined to save money. But now I'd happily pay to meet these people and have these experiences."
THE NEW-YORKER

Interests

The world looks simple from far but, the more you dig into it the more you raise questions...
Interests: Digging even more to raise even more questions (and hopefully get some answers as well).

Music, Movies & Books

Top Movie: Tuff one, may be "Inglorious Bastards" (Especially the very first scene)
Top Book: George Orwell "1984"
Top Music: South African bands (Hot Water - The Parlotones) - Some Pop Rock Classics (Arctic monkeys - Muse) - Some French Artists as well (Benabar - La Rue Ketanou)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

- Hitchhiking from Shiraz (Iran) to Yereva (Armenia), Tbilissi (Georgia) and then Istanbul... Really Cool.
- Walk to "El Mirador" in Guatemala during the rainy season. A 5 days (oh no), 6 days walk in the mud...
-To spend a couple of days in a Kuna reserve in Panama (Comarca Kuna Yala) and get to understand their culture better.
-To experience the 2010 World Cup craziness in South Africa (yeah yeah, I know the French team sucked...)
-To watch the Victoria Falls in Zambia from an Helicopter
-To fly over the Namibian red sand desert with a little 5 seats plane
-To drive from Paris to Amsterdam/Copenhagen and Berlin in a small french car (a Clio 1 for those who know...)
