About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Traveling Australia (Currently in Cairns, Queensland)

ABOUT ME

I can't describe myself in only a few lines because I'm an open person that likes to discover all that people can offer so my opinions & attitude change with time. One thing is sure, I'm very social & I like sharing with others, whether it be life experiences, anecdotes, music, films, etc.

I love music even though I don't have the talent to play. My schedule is built often around festivals & shows that I want to see. I pass lots of time reading, mostly fiction & Manga but also certain historical or philisophical books.

I also bike a lot. In fact my bicycle is my most precious possession. When things aren't going well I'll take a bike ride & everything is better. After having hosted many Couchsurfers, I hope to be able to travel by bike & often have a roof over my head thanks to this marvelous website.

The first reason I register to this website is because I like showing my city to people from other countries & cultures. They are all welcome in my home & it's my pleasure to show you all that Quebec has to offer!

PHILOSOPHY

The only revolution possible is to try to improve ourselves every day & hope that others do the same. The world will be a better place.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like to show my city to as many people as possible & at the same time get to know people who like travelling & sharing their culture.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have hosted lots of people so far & I find the experience a positive one in all ways. I used couchsurfing to travel in Canada by bicycle and I want to use it now in Australia and around. With each CS experience I learn a lot of things that help me evolve. Thats the primary reason that motivates me to host travellers.

Interests

Biking, reading, hikking, music. I'm interested a bit in lots of things.
