About Me


I am french guy living in barcelona, since 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 other places in the North of Spain.

My life is much about travelling, I wish I could go everywhere and know every single place in this world. I like learning foreign languages, learn about people culture and interests, experiencing different lifestyles.


I believe life is short, so every second is important. Living is not about working hard. Making very rich people even richer is unfortunately what too many of us spend most of our time at... Our place in this world has to be more spiritual.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I live in a very little flat in the center of Barcelona, I can welcome one person for one night. More people and/or nights gets quickly uncomfortable due to the lack of space.


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.


Meeting people, learning about languages and cultures
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.
Outdoor activities. hiking, mountain climbing, snowboarding, surfing, paddling...
Music. Rock, Electro (trip hop, break), funk... Also I play the violin in a band... guitar and ukulele just for fun.
I like social times, hanging out in bars, discussing and sharing cultural interests, political views, and so..
