Über mich

Hey! Salut! Well, this is awkward. Um, I'm Laurence, I'm 5'1", I wear mostly black because I get dirty all the time. I like writing, talking, beekeeping, cooking, eating, drinking coffee and/or beer, watching movies, and cycling - among other things!

Lately? Working freelance, writing screenplays (when I stop making myself espressos to procrastinate) and beekeeping/homesteading in the beautiful Québec countryside with my dearest baleze.

What else... Well, I'm fairly easygoing, quite curious and I like to make people laugh. Also, surprisingly, it seems like I'm getting better at managing my emotions with time, which is really convenient socially! I also like to spend most of my time listening to people cleverer than me.

Warum ich bei Couchsurfing bin

Is it a roof and a friend that you need? Yeah, I've been on those park benches before and I know they're not the most charismatic things. Knock at our door - only if you like cats though, because if you don't you're a bad person.

And if Philippe and I ever knock at your door (oh, we will) please let us in. We were well brought-up and won't shit in the plants, I swear.

I'm limited language-wise, but French, English, Spanish or Parseltongue should probably do it.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Back in the days, I couchsurfed around England, Scotland and Ireland, and also around Eastern-ish Europe. Most wonderful memories of those mostly solitary trips.

Also, that other wierdo baleze and I managed our way a couple years ago around Peru and Bolivia, based only on the people who looked cool and wanted us over; the diversity of hosts we had and their devotion was incredibly inspiring.

We cycled around Spain, France, Belgium and the Netherlands and couchsurfed everytime we could; I don't know if experience showed us a couple tricks, but we just had the awesomest hosts.

Last summer, I found two potential adoptive mothers for myself in Burghausen and Treviso. No like, for real.

Speaking of mothers, we've hosted the most amazing family of five lately in our small flat (hello, the Caudles!) and I kind of feel my ovaries getting all crazies. I'm not sure what to think of THAT.

Finally, we got to stay with amazing Chinese and expats hosts in China in June 2014, and it really made the whole trip much more acceptable in terms of mental health! China can be a bit overwhelming at times!

Musik, Filme und Bücher

I'm not judging you if you did, but I think picking cultural faves is absolutely ridiculous for many reasons, so let's just talk about these things when we meet, alright?

Eine tolle Erfahrung, die ich gemacht habe

- Being a part of the Rainbow/ San Pedro team back in the depth of the Moon Valley
- Not humiliating myself in a no-bathroom-twelve-hours-by-night-in-the-mountains-of-south-america bus ride
- Cycling 3700 km in two months and pedaling up the Pyrénées
- Cycling up the Grossglockner Road from Austria to Italy (what were we thinking?)

Lehren, lernen, teilen

Food. Anything about it. Food's pretty awesome and it grows everywhere at our place. Hopefully you also like food and also have the ability to eat it/prepare it.

Social entrepreneurship, urban agriculture, mental and physical health, spirituality. Let's talk!

Bees. Bees. Bees.

People and studying them is one of the things I like to do best. So there you go, you already know how much I'd like to meet you and study you share experiences.

Oh, and bees.

Was ich mit Gastgebern teilen kann

Are you kidding me? What is happening to the good ol' Couchsurfing vibe anyways?

I can offer both hosts AND guests nothing more or less than proper, interesting, genuine, heartfelt and desired human interaction. Hope that'll do.
