Discovering America till I regret leaving it !


I am social, gentle, spiritual and sometimes funny when I am in a friendly environment. I enjoy meeting new people and discovering typical places.
I work and live between Marseille and Montpellier in the south of France
I lived in Malaysia for two years back in 2009.
I like discovering different cultures, lifestyles and histories.
I like water sports, football, boxing and I am addict to black and latin music !

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was born and raised in the south of France from Moroccan origins.
I lived and traveled in different places (Europe, South East Asia, North Africa, Middle East)
I am ready to share my experiences and discover new lifestyles, cultures and learning from insightful characters.


I have hosted travelers in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and Marseille (France) and I have slept in couches in Ho chi Ming (Vietnam)
