About Me


sharing good vibrations,spreading love and happiness wherever I go


I'm not really comfortable when it comes to speak about myself, but I will try for you! I guess I'm a young guy who is still searching his path in this life, and who tries to find it by travelling, among other things.
I did study politics and history, but I surely don't want to be one of this politician guys.
Anyway, if I say too much here there won't any reason to meet up, so let's keep the rest for the face to face meeting :)


"Each one teach one". This is one of groundation's records, and it's perfect to me. We do not have to forget that every man is just a man, that we can learn and teach to and from each other. none is superior, none is inferior.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I both host, when I'm home (obviously) and I surf when I'm travelling. I also did use it to meet people to travel with in New Zealand, and to meet people while staying in Australia.


I surfed in Argentina, Chile, Indonesia, Israël, Morocco, Turkey, Malaysia , Australia and New Zealand!

I hosted in my flat in Lyon a lot of people, from Germany, France, Poland, Norway, Sweden, Vietnam, USA, Canada, Finland, Taiwan...

CS also helped to find travelmates during my trips, all good experiences so far!


travelling and music on the top. by travelling, i mean seeing different countries, different landscapes, different cities and also meet people with other cultures or simply other point of views. As i can share with them, it's perfect.
i like also practicing sport, watching movies, reading, and espacially being we my friends or other people, to chat and enjoy.

Teach, Learn, Share

I strongly believe that everyone has something to teach me, and viceversa.

What I can teach? I can talk for hours of history, of the countries I've visited, of my country of course ( what's wrong and what's good).

I can learn everything, I'm always interested in discovering new things, whatever this is.
