ABOUT ME

Hello !!

My name is Guillaume. I come from France, in Paris more exactly. I am 19 years old and I was born in Normandy at the West of Paris (2hours).

I am a very friendly, funny and a opened-minded student, Like a curious guy, I love to discover new countries and to meet new people. That's why I love the couchsurfing spirit : to learn, to teach, to be helped and to share with others. An awesome experience.

I love photography, travelling, metting new people. I practice biking and sailing. And last but not least, I am a good cooker (especially doing crèpes) ;)

In I am studying business in a french school. Moreover, I am currently an exchange student in Toronto, at Ryerson University, for 1 semestre.

See you

PHILOSOPHY

My favorite poem from Baudelaire :
English translation: http://fleursdumal.org/poem/148

L'invitation au voyage

Mon enfant, ma soeur,
Songe à la douceur
D'aller là-bas vivre ensemble !
Aimer à loisir,
Aimer et mourir
Au pays qui te ressemble !
Les soleils mouillés
De ces ciels brouillés
Pour mon esprit ont les charmes
Si mystérieux
De tes traîtres yeux,
Brillant à travers leurs larmes.

Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté.

Des meubles luisants,
Polis par les ans,
Décoreraient notre chambre ;
Les plus rares fleurs
Mêlant leurs odeurs
Aux vagues senteurs de l'ambre,
Les riches plafonds,
Les miroirs profonds,
La splendeur orientale,
Tout y parlerait
À l'âme en secret
Sa douce langue natale.

Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté.

Vois sur ces canaux
Dormir ces vaisseaux
Dont l'humeur est vagabonde ;
C'est pour assouvir
Ton moindre désir
Qu'ils viennent du bout du monde.
- Les soleils couchants
Revêtent les champs,
Les canaux, la ville entière,
D'hyacinthe et d'or ;
Le monde s'endort
Dans une chaude lumière.

Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme et volupté.
