About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Say YES to life, overtaking any fear

ABOUT ME

I'm french but I was born in Chile and I grew up in Paragay until I was 15. I studied geology and water ressources, and I was recently working in geotechnical surveys near Paris. I'm now back in Paraguay for work, after a little trip on the Atlantic and in Brazil.
I moved around a lot during the past 2 years, and I would like to continue discovering new places.
A few roots, highly naturophile, I like simple and effective things.
I dream of making sustainable development my way of life, and travel the globe to make beautiful meetings and understand new cultures and life skills.

PHILOSOPHY

Rien ne sert de partir à point, il faut courir.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I first used CS to host people in my floor in Agen and I enjoyed it a lot. Beautifull meetings. I like being usefull for people who need some help I can give. It was nice to meet very different people, who came in my city for very different reasons.
I was travelling in Brasil and benefiting from the CS network earlier in 2015. I loved it, peolpe I met are bõa gente, only rewarding experiences.

I obviously participate with food expenses. I travel with very small budget, but I participate as much as possible.

I'm used to cohabitation. I lived several times in colocations and with families, in France and in Paraguay. And I met many couchsurfers at home and friends', and were very good experiences. I feel like a traveler, and maybe like a stranger almost everywhere, so I consider you all couchsurfers as potential friends, or a least people with whom to share something. As long as there is respect, I think that any exchange can be rewarding.
