About Me


Become a kickass photographer


Hello all you lovely people! Welcome on my page :D.

My name is Julien, i'm 23 and i live in Lyon (France). I recently finished a one year journey around North America that put my whole life in a new perspective. Now i'm traveling in Europe with my girlfriend and i continue my education at the University of Life ;).

I want to see the good in everything and everybody. I think Happiness is a state of mind and Beauty is all around us.

My objective is to learn and share. The best way i've found to make it is to travel, meet people and experience life to the fullest.

Now you know more about me and my plans in life. What about you? I hope i'll have the pleasure to meet you soon :).

"Un voyage se passe de motifs. Il ne tarde pas a prouver qu'il se suffit a lui-meme. On croit qu'on va faire un voyage, mais bientot, c'est le voyage qui vous fait, ou vous defait." Nicolas Bouvier

"You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself." Alan Alda

"The unexamined life is not worth living for a human being." Socrates

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I travel and meet people to contribute in creating a better world, couch by couch ;). I also participate at the community's life as much as i can.


I met CSers from all over the world and shared with them a lot of amazing eCSperiences.


I like road trips and photography. I enjoy listening and playing music. And above all i'm a beer fan!
