About Me

CURRENT MISSION

studying electrical engineering, renewable energies

ABOUT ME

I grew up in the countryside in Northern France with a family of farmers. After high school, I moved away to study engineering. Since that time, I travel every time I can! I'm someone very sociable and friendly! I always like meeting new people, I'm pretty curious about everything and I'm also always ready to try something new! Life is a gift, I try to enjoy it as much as I can!

PHILOSOPHY

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

Rester, c'est exister mais voyager, c'est vivre.
(Sticking around is existing, but traveling is living.)
Gustave Nadaud

The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Depending on my schedule, I try to host when I can. Most of my travels aren't planned without CS ;) And I always enjoy to take part in a CS event.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I'm really glad I've heard about CS. It changed the way I'm seeing my travels now. And the semester I spent in the USA wouldn't have been so great without CS. My first CS experience was with some friends in Switzerland and we were amazed by the kindness of the people we met, how friendly and interesting they were! It makes you meet the most wonderful people! Then, I backpacked through California and Florida, only hosted by CSers, and this was the best trip ever! I found a place to live in Atlanta also thanks to CS and most of the people I met in this city were members of this community.

Interests

I enjoy sports in general. I specially like running; and skiing when I can, hiking with friends, cycling, ... I'm always ready to try a new activity!
When I travel, I LOVE seeing beautiful landscapes and I miss the nature when I stay too long in a city.
I like reading but I'm usually too busy to do so or don't take the time.
Most of my spare time is to be spent hanging out with friends.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I flew in a balloon. I was a door-to-door seller in Ireland. Playing with the kids in the water after a downpour in an orphanage in India was amazing. And lots of random stuff which feel amazing to me but I think an amazing thing depends a lot on how, with who and where you spent it.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach some French and also a bit about new energies or electrical engineering.
