About Me

Marine and I are a nice couple that would love to make new friends and have fun with anybody we'd meet during our trip. It is a 12 to 15 months trip around south-east Asia ; starting in Bali, Indonesia and ending in Nepal !

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Gilles has first enjoyed couchsurfing during a 5-months trip in Latin America and now we want to keep traveling that way since it is the best way to discover local culture and lifestyle.

Music, Movies, and Books

Marine and I have more or less the same favourite types of music:

- Reggaeton (Gilles : after 4 months living in Spain and a 5 months trip in Latin America...)
- Rap and hip hop(even chill instrumental)
- House, Deep house, Tech-house, nu-disco, breakbeat, IDM, ambient, Techno

Gilles : I'm the guy that has seen most of the must-see movies but can't remember a single scene.. Still, I'm more art film-oriented than transformers 18-oriented. But I like classic movies like "Goodfellas", "The godfather", "Memento", "Fight club"... I also watched more than 50 japanese anime.

Marine : I like series like "The big bang theory" and movies as "Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind", "Lion", "Django", "Princess Mononoke", "Inception". I also like psychological series like "6 feet under".

We like philosophical/initiatory books (Paul Coelho, books about karma) and also fantasy books like Lord of the rings and even more serious books about emotional intelligence.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Gilles : Volunteering in Morocco at Imoulass village / 5 months trip in Latin America
Marine : Helping out homeless people during my social work, every day
