Know as much as i could the world and its habitants
If friends were talking about me, i think (i hope xD) they'll say something like, He is honest, open-minded, always for having some drinks, some fun, some music, someone you can rely on in various situations, he can be as reserved as completely expansive depending the atmosphere.
For now, just see the world, meet its numerous cultures and its awesome people.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
For now i'm travelling so offering my coach is not quite simple, but as i can i will !
Or else, meet other coachsurfers, show the city i live, havre some drinks.
My first experience was in Chicoutimi (Saguenay, Québec) and as first, it was very surprising.
We came at the house of our hosts (a young couple with a baby), we talked for 10 minutes and they suddenly left, gone to throw the garbage. Thirty seconds later the girl just show is head by the door, saying "oh we didn't say it, but could you keep an eye on the baby ?".
And they left us alone with their baby for almost half an hour ...
People are amazing !
From this time i spent around 2y and half only travelling across Canada and USA, staying to a lot of different places (the longest i stayed at the same place during this time is 2 weeks). And even if i really like to travel myself, i'm really looking forward to host travellers ^^
Right now, end of 2015, and after a few months home i'm going on another trip accros Europe, Russia , Corea and Japan looking forward to meet people from those countries and its culture.
Travelling and meeting people for sure. Hiking in the nature. Many sports (soccer first) but more practicing than just watching ( but i don't say no to game in a bar with some beers). I don't watch tv (i sold mine years ago) but i really enjoy movies, series and documentaries sometimes. I wasn't really interested in music untill my 20yo, but from this moment i'm always keen on listenning old classicals or discovering new artists (and i don't know a better way that concerts !)

Teach, Learn, Share
Teach : Well, i think i have a practical mind and i used to work in construction, so if you need a hand i can try to help you !
And i surprised myself improvising being a french teacher, which i actually like, so let me know if you're interested ;)
Learn : I'm still learning to open myself to the world ^^ During my travel i'm always asking people who could teach me ... anything ! It's so good to learn.
Sharing : The best times and the best way to learn.
