About Me


Discover the world and learn from it


Hello Couchsurfers !

My name is Hervé, I'am 27 years old. I graduated few years ago after what I started my own company. One day I decided to realize my oldest dream : Travel the world.

I live in Vincennes, a calm city close to Paris in France.
I started this trip at the beginning of February 2013 ! My first Destination was Greece (Athens). While you are reading my profile, I could be in Cairo, New Delhi, Bangkok, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Mexico or another city with my backpack.

I'm doing this trip on my own because it's the best way to meet new people ! Love to be in front of new cultures and find out the way that life runs in different places of the globe.

If you planned to travel in France, I will be glade to help you !
Of course, I always have time to teach French ;)

Hope to see you soon

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Doing as much as possible for couchsurfers.
You can trust me, I'm a reliable guy, if you help me, I will do my best to help you back.

I've been spreading stories of my couchsurfing experience around my friends and some of them have signed up and still use it


My couchsurfing experience began when I started my world tour in february 2013, living exciting adventures while traveling.
So far, I've always had very interesting experiences and some really amazing ones, you have no idea !


Music Festivals
Charity works
Sport (gymnastic, swimming,snowboarding, surfing, running, playing tennis and golf)
Discover new cultures and meet people

Music, Movies, and Books

The list would be too long, this are some of my favorite

Authors : Paulo Coelho, George R. R. Martin, George Lucas, Primo Levi, Beigbeder, Jules Verne, Balzac, Camus, Diderot, Yourcenar, Dumas...

Directors : Peter Jackson, David Fincher, Steven Spielberg, Christopher Nolan, J. J. Abrams, Quentin Tarantino, George Lucas, Martin Scorsese, Coen brothers, Roman Polanski, Danny Boyle, Kathryn Bigelow, James Cameron, Michael Moore (I love documentaries)…

I would suggest you to watch "Amélie" if you haven't yet. The film is a whimsical depiction of contemporary Parisian life, set in Montmartre. It tells the story of a shy waitress, played by Audrey Tautou, who decides to change the lives of those around her for the better, while struggling with her own isolation.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I started a world tour 2,5 years ago with no plans and I'm still on the road…I love spontaneous traveling !!

One of the best experience I had in my world tour was to ride a motorbike with another great traveler from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi in Vietnam.

Sleeping on the great wall of Beijing was also a great experience

Oh... almost forgot ! I have been to the moon, twice :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to teach French or some good recipes
I love sport and I'm quite good in tennis, golf, swimming, table tennis so if you need to practice, I'm your guy

I have a master degree in Web marketing so if you need help for your website, I'm your guy.
