About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Quentin hosts in London - Javier in Brussels, let's try it with one profile!

ABOUT ME

WARNING:

LAST MINUTE COUCH SURFING ONLY: it is impossible to say more than 3 or 4 days in advance if we'll be able to host you!! Please contact me only for last minute couch search.
To be sure you read my profile, you can say to me what you would like to eat/cook/drink together, as I am a food and cooking freak.
------------------------------------------------------

Quentin and Javier are friends from childhoud town and used to share student flat in Brussels with Xavier. We enjoyed a lot hosting people from all over the world and now we finish studying and keep the same profile for both of us.

Now Javier is back from bicycle trip to africa, living right now close to the midi station in St-Gilles. (you can see more at http://www.lesaventuresdes.blogspot.com)

We both play music, we like laughing, being spontaneous and meeting a lot of new people.

After hosting a lot, it is very exciting to travel and discover the other side of couch surfing.

We try to travel as much as we can, adventurously, like hitchhiking, trekking, and doing crazy things.

PHILOSOPHY

Try to laugh and be happy! That s the better thing you can do in life!!

Don't do to others what you wouldn't like they do to you.

Be humble, don't be sure you know.

You never stop learning.

If you are able of laughing about yourself, you're on right track.

You are not what you think. What you think, you are...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Meeting lots of people from all over the world and helping people who love adventure to find a couch.

Showing authentic and underground places to hosts.

Spreading good vibes and cooking good meals to guest and hosts.

Trying to be real, and to be better everyday.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hosting is like being in holiday at home! Surfing is sometimes like being home while travelling! So sweet!

We both have hosted many backpackers we met in the street before knowing CS: so it was already in DNA!

So we had a wonderful 2 or 3 years hosting experience where we met lots of interesting surfers, got hips of cool parties and dinners with them and shared sometimes kindof best moments ever!

Interests

We like both Both: Playing music, Singing, Guitar, Percussions, food, Video-Board-whatever kind of Games.
