Join Couchsurfing to see joris’s full profile. It’s free!
I currently live in Lille France, doing my Ph.D in robotics. Trying to explore the world and make new friends as much as I can :)
I would described myself as a passionate person. I really enjoy discovering and trying new things.
I might also be described as a little ambivalent as I like nature activities as well as watching movies comfortably seated in a couch, I like traveling in cities as much as I love going in the countryside discovering beautiful landscapes...
I think I am an easy going person who like almost everyone and usually get along with very different kind of persons.
My friend usually say I am always smiling and I like humor
I consider myself as an open-minded person.
I hate spending my days sleeping and always need to have plans for the future (I consider owning a plane ticket is already a plan).
I have a quite active life and if I had to die soon I would like to be able to say that it couldn't have been better.
"Take any experience you can" could be a good motto for this philosophy section
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I mostly travel using couchsurfing simply because it is the best way to travel. Really, being on couchsurfing have made me so much more interested in travelling. Going somewhere and seeing beautiful lanscapes and monuments is great. Discovering it through the experience of a local is way different and better.
I also enjoy going to bars a lot and CS is often a wonderful way to find the best small places where locals go.
CS is just amazing.
When I am not traveling, I am also always happy to welcome anyone who wants at my home. It makes me want to go back to traveling even more and it is always a good experience. It is always a good way to rediscover your city through the eyes of your guests.
North east America, Canada, South of the US are mostly the places where I have surfed. So far, I never had to face any bad experience neither hosting nor being a guest.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I could say the Raid ECP, which was a race in switzerland mountains during 5 days doing around 50 km every day. This was an amazing experience. And camping in the snow is awesome.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can cook, I am french so I know at least some basic things about cooking.
I can teach skiing (and snowboarding and many other sports).
I can also teach a lot of scientific topics if you are interested.
I can share some soft electro music.
