About Me


help the globalisation being at first a cultural thing.


As a quick summ up:
I am french guy living in barcelona, from 2006 to now, with a 3-year break living/working in London.
Before that I have been for short and mid term periods in Canada, Germany and Spain.

My life is much about travelling, enjoying becoming a local in different environments. I like learning foreign languages, learn about people culture and interests, experiencing different lifestyles.
As most of us might not travel physically as much as we would like, we can at least travel mentally, just hanging out with backpackers... And hosting the travelers.


I believe life is short, so every second counts. I do not take professional and social relationship very personally, not even that seriously.. Anyone has to live for what they like, the rest does not really matter, it is just a context.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been participating some time ago, in both ways.
I am now ready for more experiences of the couchsurfing.


I don't have an extensive experience of couchsurfing, but I am confident with the system and community, in both ways.
I am definitely ready for more.

huge interest in physical geography, especially when relatinging to mountains.
Big interest in languages. Native french speaker, good level in Spanish and English, intermediate in German, I pretend a bit of Korean.
