About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Ayudar
And stay the number one CS in Montréal!

ABOUT ME
Political sciences, international relations

PHILOSOPHY

To help and receive help from time to time. I'm sure that most of the worldwide population is honest. As a result, we have to find the right people.
Live Aid in 1985, Live 8 in 2005 and Live Earth in 2007 have changed my life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My goal: to stay the # 1 host in my hometown (because it's true, believe me). To be the natural Québec's (and of course Montréal's) getaway!
As a result, I use to host close to 75 CS per year. Their confort is VERY important for me.
Bienvenue chez moi!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

In Ireland to make reports on that phenomenon. Then in Argentina and Chile. Finally, in Lituania, Poland and Prague, and in Gaspésie (east part of Québec). And I host close a lot of CS each year (close to 50), and I really really like it!

Interests

Politique, droit, économie et relations internationales, littérature, randonnée pédestre, militantisme, communication radiophonique. L'entraide, le réseautage entre personnes convaincues que la société fonctionnerait mieux en s'aidant plutôt qu'en "s'entreméfiant".

  • culture
  • ballet dancing
  • sports
  • political science
  • international politics

Music, Movies, and Books

Presque tous les films (mais surtout ceux de Cédric Klapish, L'auberge espagnole et Les poupées russes, que j'ai vus 100 fois, parce qu'une partie de ma vie s'y trouve), presque toutes les musiques, lecture des grands auteurs de la littérature (surtout russe et irlandaise). Lecture du Devoir (Montréal), Courrier international et Le Monde (Paris), El Pais (Madrid) et The Economist (Londres).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Partager de bons repas entre CS.

Teach, Learn, Share

On dit qu'on donne la vie aux enfants.
C'est vrai, mais les enfants nous la donnent aussi.
En fait, ils nous permettent d'exister...
Et vivre, c'est exister, c'est être attendu quelque part...

What I Can Share with Hosts

Puedo decir que desde el primer momento soy una persona muy atenta, doy varios consejos de que hacer en Montreal desde antes de que llegaran las anfitriones, me aseguro de que estuvieran cómoda y les enseño varias cosas sobre Québec.
I know a lot, so I will show you some cool hidden spots in the city and give us tips where to go. Especially the Jean-Talon Marche is epic! And the fruits there are just delicious. I will made our time in Montréal and elsewhere in Québec.
