About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Take life as it comes, enjoying every moment of the ride!! Share and learn as much as I can. Welcome to my place!

ABOUT ME

Hello !! Always hard to describe oneself but let's try ! Well, I'm a very easy-going person, laid-back, always positive and happy. I love traveling and meeting people... what better way than CS to do that, right ? I left France a few years ago now. First for Spain where I lived 3 and 1/2 years then for Thailand 2 years. During those 5 and 1/2 years I was working in automotive industry but decided to quit my job and live from my passions, travel and kitesurf. So since may 2008, I live the global crisis from the beach... kiting or teaching kite. No regrets at all !!! Life is too short, live your dream ;)

I'm now spending 7 months a year in the Philippines then 5 months traveling anywhere. In the Philippines, I live in a small paradisiac island called Boracay. I stay there generally from September to April. Excellent wind condition, wild nightlife !!, one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world (white beach), perfect to go crazy !!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

As a CS addict, I am spreading the word to everyone. I wish CS will have an as positive impact on them as it had on me. It changed my life and made me meet great people !!

I welcome any kind of people. Every experience with any CS has always been very rich and I am grateful to them !

If you have any questions about how CS works or you want information about countries I visited, about travels in general or else, feel free to ask me. I make it a point to answer every mail.

I organized some CS parties at my place and went to various CS meetings. It has always been an awesome experience. Join us for the next one !! ;)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far, my experience is about hosting people. Some 60 people I reckon... Not even one bad experience, on the contrary !! I hosted different kind of people from different horizons and always had a great time. I've also been hosted but only by people I already knew beforehand via CS or people I met during travels. But I will try being hosted by total strangers soon and I am looking forward to it !

Music, Movies & Books

Here are some books or authors I really enjoyed: On the road - Jack Kerouac Avicenne ou la route d'Ispahan - Gilbert Sinoue Life of Pi - Yann Martel L'oracle Della Luna - Frederic Lenoir The monk who sold his ferrari - Robin Sharma El libro del Hara - Osho Mike Horn adventures Long way round - Ewan McGregor Plaidoyer pour le bonheur - Matthieu Ricard Cyclo-nomade - Jacques Sirat
