About Me


Experience the natural beauty of the places I travel to.


Hi and thanks for checking my profile out!
I'm Pierre, I love to travel and take ppl around if I can. My main thing is that I would like to check out the less traveled paths, or really discover the true beauty of the places I explore. After all, I can be a regular tourist when I am older.
To give you some hindsight, here are some of the things I did in the first 6 months of 2010:
- Ziplined from one montain to the next in Puerto Ballarta, Mexico
- Rode a Segway under the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France
- Watched the Sunset from a hidden campspot known only to locals on Kona, Hawaii
- Battled the crazy taxi drivers of Manhattan on a bicycle in Manhattan, NY
- Snowboarded in Colorado, California, Arizona
- Ate Tapasin local bars, San Sebastian, Spain
- Climbed Mt Fuji during a typhoon/at night. Fuji, Japan


most of the people on this earth struggle to look at things in a clear light and only seem to see things their way. I fall in this category too, but in the end I believe that to find your bearing and to be comfortable with your life is to be comfortable with who you are. Karma is often involved, like Damocles' sword hanging over your head, in a less black or white way. Respect others, do to others as you would like done to you, and in the end, just be good :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am very new to the CS community and will be travelling for the rest of 2010. However I am always open to people and have often invited people to use my couch / come experience sides of LA they have yet to see.
This happened last year: I took a friend doing an internship around Los Angeles and we have since kept in touch since her return in France (Actually, she helped me find someone to hold my spot in the apt while I travel!)
Creating an extended international network (Alex, my German friend and I, met up for fun in NY this spring after he returned to Germany) I believe it is important to share the little bits you know well to people who are able to understand what they are gaining from it (this May, I took two college friends from LA with me to visit France, we stayed with family and I got to show them the sights and other attractions!)


my main couchsurfing experience was the subject of my college entry essay:
I'll spare you the details but fresh from France to study, I couldn't locate my apt and ended up knocking at a random apt to ask for help. They agreed to let me sleep on their couch over the weekend and promised to help me when the weekend was to be over.
We are still friends to this day, the group of people I met nearly 10 years ago is my closest group of friends, and we are spread accross the 4 corners of the world ! (India/China/Jordan/HK/TW)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

one amazing thing?
relocated to the US on my own at 20 years old :)
but for the wow factor... Skydiving? It was an experience!

Teach, Learn, Share

Everyone tries to push you one way or another related to what they know.
One thing I am grateful for learning is that other people's path is their own, and that mine doesn't need to reflect theirs. Accept that your truth is not someone else's. This is the first step to accepting others as they come and opening yourself to learning from within.
