MAKING A BREAK IN HOSTING CURRENTLY.
ONLY HOSTING PEOPLE WHO READ MY PROFILE AND WITH FULL PROFILE & REFERENCES (especially if you've been a member for years)
I'm despaired to still receive so many bad requests which take me time to answer. My answer rate is normally 100% but I've recently been so fed up with copy /pastes that don't deserve proper answer that I just switched off answering on time!
I value interaction with the CSer's I host so that usually happens on the evening of arrival. Therefore I will refuse any arrival after 8 pm.
Build on my Hong Kong experience, enjoy the present, enjoy what nature has to offer:)
After 7 years in Geneva, Switzerland, and a few years of fascinating and regular travels to Asia, I decided to leave all behind and come to Hong Kong to find a job, experience living here. That's a wonderful place to live in (the energy, rooftop bars, the mountains, jungle, beaches...) but I couldn't find a good job, reason why I ended up in Geneva again, close to mountains and hiking possibilities.
I'm originally from Britanny near the Atlantic Ocean.
Listing all the quotes which appeal to me would make the philosophy rather confused.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Hosting, surfing, sharing, promoting the genuine CS spirit :)
Initially, my brother explained me about Couchsurfing and I thought I should do it too. I got to host some people and surf some peoples' couch, and participated in various local events.
Discovering the braderie of Lille with couchsurfers and spending a week in Mallorca "off the beaten track", thanks to this website, was just fantastic.
Then the spirit of Couchsurfing somehow changed (what a pity!) and I've been using Couchsurfing a lot less. Also living in Hong Kong and in a small flatshare didn't help as I couldn't host.
interacting with people, going out, cooking, wines, hiking, travelling...
- track and field
Music, Movies, and Books
mostly world music, and a few pop/ rock bands, eg. Muse, Coldplay and Aaron, a great discovery of French pop groups.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Pursue my dream in Hong Kong!
My backpacking tour of Thailand & Laos may have been the impetus for a lot of things as well :)
Teach, Learn, Share
I think that while hosting or surfing a couch, we could practise languages, do cooking lessons together :-)
Well, just spontaneity!
