Bouddhist tendancy that I try to apply in my every day life and by meditating (vipassana technique). Respect, detachment, realism, positive speech and actions...
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I discovered couchsurfing in New-Caledonia and got in contact with several friendly members who welcomed me and who I thank very much. They either host me or we went for a drink or even for a dive. Thanks to the couchsurfing I enjoyed my trip much better, it actually made it! I try to give as much as I received. Now I am on the road again, once you've tasted it...
People offered me accomodation in Nouméa (all together 5 weeks). It was a good way to discover different parts of the town. Another person offered me a w-e on board his sailing boat. I also spent a rainy afternoon in a bar with a couchsurfer and his friends, it saved the day. Back home I hosted people (french as well as foreigners)for short periods. I am back from a 5 month trip in south-east Asia. I sent several requests in Laos and Cambodia, but no answers. It seems that couchsurfing is more difficult in some countries.
diving (rather freediving), yoga, DIY, travelling...

Music, Movies, and Books
I like film musics (kill bill, trainspotting, until the end of the world, lock stock and 2 smoking barrels, white cat-black cat, in the mood for love...). Blues, reggae... I don't read as much as I'd like to. Favorite writers: St Exupéry, Boris Vian
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Watching giant sea turttles nesting on a beach in french Guiana.
Also in Guiana : watching rocket Ariane taking-off, really smashing :O.
I made and sold caribbean coconut ice cream and pancakes in Cambodia, trained a khmer friend and gave her the machines to continue the business... good luck to her.
But I never look for anything special, thus I enjoy simple things coming across my way...
Teach, Learn, Share
*teaching: french language, welding. I can't think of any other knowledge that could interest someone.
*learning: spanish, and so many more about which I have no idea yet! (I met an italian girl in Australia who is a specialist in sea turttles, she shared her passion with me, so I became interested though I knew nothing about turttles before!).
*sharing: trips. When I work in a country I stay and visit it as thoroughly as I can.
