About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Let's improve the world, all together as far as it is possible, and above!

ABOUT ME

I was born in the french side of Basq Country, but my origins are in the both side (my grand father is Basq from Spain). I grew up in farms and fields, with no more neighbour than trees and animals :o) Atlantic Ocean was a very nice game place, Pyrénées Mountain too! surfing in summer, skiing in winter! I was a lucky kid, I'm still a lucky man (I hope I will follow this way :o))) My parents are farmer, and during my childhood we never went on holydays together in summer because they worked hard in this season! That's why we travelled more during winter all together and we discovered beautiful places such as Tunisia, Morroco, Lybia.... to find the sun they couldn't appreciate in summer! Here began my love for travelling, for metting new people and new culture!

PHILOSOPHY

too much serious is really not serious!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

like many couchsurfers (I think) inviting them, and travelling to their place, sharing our experiences and live!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I know couchsurfing by my friend Saïd, and I met couchsurfers before joining this community, so I think I know the good feeling I'll find joining you, the world wide couchsurfers' community! When Saïd invited a couchsurfer at home (we live together), he was also my invitee, and I think he enjoyed the soup I cooked :o)

Interests

past and actual civilisations' way of life, sport, nature, earth's health!

Music, Movies & Books

I love Akira Kurosawa, kubrick, Frederic Wisemann, Almodovar, Fellini, Hitchcock, Depardon, Tati, Chaplin, Wong Kar Way, Kusturica, Miyasaki,... in music: traditionnal and no traditionnal world music, classical, jazz, Brassens, Gainsbourg, Brell, Boris Vian, ... books: Dostoïevski, Kundera, Sweig, Amadou Hampate Bâ, Amadou Kourouma, Diderot, Balzac, David Lodge, Amin Maalouf, Albert Jacquard, Boris Vian, Perre Desproges,..

One Amazing Thing I've Done

What is amazing for me is:... the Life, the 4 Seasons, the Sun and the Moon dancing around our days,... standing up on a surfboard sliding on a wave...

Teach, Learn, Share

I try to direct some documentaries, from writing to editing. I've alreay made 3 films: 2 about traditional houses in Cambodia, 1 in Mauritania about a french association called Aventure Handicap. I really don't know what I can teach, but the only thing I'm sure is: "I know that I don't know!" So I can try to explain somethings, but I prefer learning than teaching!

Belgium, Cambodia, Chile, Italy, Lebanon, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Senegal, Spain, Sweden, Tunisia, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, Western Sahara
