About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be in peace

ABOUT ME

I'm currently studying Chinese in Haikou (Hainan University)

Apart from my studies, I think I am a cool and relax person with an open mind that loves new experiences. I like to hang out and have beers and I enjoy conversing. We are blessed with an awesome nightlife here in Montreal and I love the diversity it offers. I'm also a nature and animal lover. I enjoy the mountains and the sea best. Surfing is one of my deepest passion.

I'm a spontaneous guy and don't like to plan ahead to much and I love last minute trips or adventures. I just try to take a bit of time everyday to get things straight in my head and meditate.

PHILOSOPHY

Des mille formes de la vie chacun ne peut connaître qu'une. Envier le bonheur d'autrui, c'est folie; on ne saurait s'en servir. Le bonheur ne se veut pas tout fait, mais sur mesure.

C'est du parfait oubli d'hier que je crée la nouvelleté de chaque heure. Jamais d'avoir été heureux, ne me suffit. Je ne crois pas aux choses mortes, et confonds n'être plus, avec n'avoir jamais été.

J'ai l'horreur du repos; la possession y encourage et dans la sécurité l'on s'endort; j'aime assez vivre pour prétendre vivre éveillé, et maintiens donc, au sein de mes richesses mêmes, ce sentiment d'état précaire par quoi j'exaspère, ou du moins j'exalte ma vie.

Gide

On ne se doit qu'à l'enfant qu'on a été.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

First, I used it to surf. Now, I host. However, I'm still willing to do both.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far, I only surfed in Asia. I surfed in China and Indonesia. Those were pretty unique experiences. The culture and customs are so different it's crazy. That's what makes it awesome tho.
