About Me


We don't accept people with no references anymore — and a boring & impersonal message, sorry !


Then bring me wine, the banquet bring ; Man was not form'd to live alone : I'll be that light, unmeaning thing That smiles with all, and weeps with none


Born in Paris, he was known to have been a restless soul, traveling extensively on three continents before his death


The highest pleasure (tranquility and freedom from fear) was obtained by knowledge, friendship, and living a virtuous and temperate life

"L'argent c'est pas bon. Le lait c'est meilleur." Boubou, Dragon Ball Z, 40

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.


Much have I travelled in the realms of gold,
And many goodly states and kingdoms seen ;
Round many western islands have I been
Which bards in fealty to Apollo hold.


I think there is always something to learn, life is an inexhaustible treasure, I believe that knowledge is the beginning of happiness and that ignorance is the misfortune of people. The Earth is large and life is short. I love art in general, reading, painting, the nineteenth mainly (Schiele, Modigliani, Gustave Moreau and Spilliaert) and picking the day.
