About Me


I really enjoy traveling on my own, sometimes with some other travelers met on the road. I'm trying to adapt to most of people. Most of the time, I run out of the cities that I visit after one or two days to go hiking in wilder places.


One of my goal is to travel, if possible, in a different way than mainstream tourism. That means, by trying to stay longer at places, by meeting people who live there, by trying to act different as hurried tourists (even if sometimes you don't have a choice).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far I've hosted several couchsurfers in Germany when I was living there, and nowadays in France. All of them were different, but all nice! I've been hosted by couchsurfers in Australia, Germany, Israel, Greece, Switzerland and Turkey. Every single experience was a great and genuine experience!

Teach, Learn, Share

I would be pleased to speak either French, English or German with you.

I have also sincere interest for alternative way of life, since I guess my life could be consider as mainstream by many and that I'm really curious.
