About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To enjoy my free time and recycle more...

ABOUT ME

Je suis Francais, je parle francais, mais mon profil est toujours en anglais. Allez on se motive et on essaye de comprendre un bout par ci par la ;)

I was a full time traveller in Asia for one year, in India mainly. Then I went back to London to earn a living again and some stability as well before to hit the road again in Asia in 2013 :) I am 29 (wait I'm 30 now...) and start feeling old sometimes, especially my knees !!

I like chocolate, stay to bed late and smileys :) I'm gentle, spontaneous, often talkative, kind of McGiver at work, curious about people, places and cultures... I tend to be open minded in my daily life but it's so easy to get back to the old habits of being individualist and uncaring !! Since I am back from India, I do try to recycle more...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I discovered the couch surfing in August 2008 and I've met some wonderful people !! It's amazing how close you can become to someone in just a couple of days and how much we're still able to share in this world.

Now, I got a single room in south London to make sure that I can host back. So I'll be glad to discover any profile and say "yes I can" (host you:)
