About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Settling down in Tunis

ABOUT ME

I'm a 26 year old graduated in political science and journalism currently working with a human rights NGO in Tunis. I travel as much as I can whether inside or abroad. Basically, I face my everyday life with travels and discoveries. In other words, I'm used to freewheel depending on the circumstances of the moment.

I'm said to be a laid-back person, always interested in meeting new people and confront my ideas with them. I also really enjoy cooking for others and I'm holding a huge knowledge over beers (you know already that Belgium is the country of it) and table pleasures that I’d be glad to make you benefit from.

I'm a very easy going guy and pretty well accustomed with house sharing (I'm living in shared houses for years). Basically, I do know the appropriate balance attributable to perfect roommates that can switch from jolly fellows to unnoticeable when expected.

PHILOSOPHY

I try to live without a priori or primary thoughts, in my social interractions as in the intellectual frame, I try to learn as much as I can. I always try to keep my mind open and to conduct my life and my personal philosophy in this way.

Bonheurs

Le premier regard par la fenêtre au matin Le vieux livre retrouvé Des visages enthousiastes De la neige, le retour des saisons Le journal Le chien La dialectique Prendre une douche, nager De la musique ancienne Des chaussures confortables Comprendre De la musique nouvelle Ecrire, planter Voyager Chanter Etre amical.

Bertolt Brecht, Poèmes 1934-1948, Tome 7

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like to discover foreign countries and meet their inhabitants. The social aspect of a travel is very important to me. I heard about this couchsurfing project and wanted to participate to this open minded process. This informatic tool is very usefull and it helps me a lot in my reasoning. In my opinion, this is at last a good aspect of globalization.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've experienced CouchSurfing in different ways (hosting, beeing hosted or just meetings) and in several locations (mostly Eastern Europe, North Africa, California and Belgium) and I'm keen to keep using CouchSurfing for a while and try to convince people around me that's the best way to discover the world and its occupants.

Interests

Photography, cinema, theater, politics, literature...It's difficult to explain this through a virtual profile. You can contact me if you need more information about my interests. Otherwise we'll have to interact what shouldn't be such a bad thing.

I'm listening to various styles of music depending on my mood. Nevertheless, I'm constantly interested in discovering new things and especially to share cultural stuffs.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Received the gold medal of and from Michael Johnson while I was a ten-years-old boy and a huge fan of his performances.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm interrested in photography and I can teach the basic skills of the argentic method. I always travel with an argentic camera so I can show you some stuffs if you want to be able to manipulate a traditional camera. I also like to cook, I'm not a proffessional but I could make you taste some good meals.
