About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My son and I are sharing the Couchsurfing profile
We both agree that the main reason why we use Couchsurfing is to know more people. We travel to visit new countries, cities or places that we are fond of but also to get some knowledge about the local culture, the language, the traditions, the lifestyle and of course for priceless advices. On each travel we had, we learned something new about each culture which was very interesting for us. On each travel, we incorporated something from the locals to our daily life and we have today a big mix of different cultures from all over the world.
The thing is hotels can't bring you much more than just a bed to sleep. It's not that normal to meet people and talk about life. You will certainly only have touristic tips which are expensive and not original at all. Thanks to Couchsurfing, we visit the whole city and feel the soul, the energy.

Moreover, we share experiences in Couchsurfing. We hear about people's travel, work, studies and everyday life which is unique in each country we go and each person we meet.

Interests

LUCE: I get a kick out of reading books, dancing, traveling and listening to music. I love cooking, walking, watching old movies and socializing.

BENJAMIN: I am hooked on every kind of sports and their practice. I like very much music and learning new things! I am fond of computer science, technology, breakthroughs, digital currencies and artificial intelligence. I love interacting with people and get to know their culture and lifestyle.

Music, Movies, and Books

LUCE: I like the music of the 80' and negro spirituals, but also classic music and bossa nova.

BENJAMIN: I appreciate every kind of music that transports me and give me the chill but I can't bear funk music (brazilian music genre which is very insulting and degrading for women who are often treated like cattle and lowered)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

We crossed the Desert of Salt in Bolivia, floated in the Dead Sea in Israel, admired the sunrise in Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon, hiked in the rain to the top of a Fjord in Prekestolen in Norway, ate and walk in Stockholm, visited Legoland in Denmark, saw the sunset in kenyan parks with girafes and elephants around, got around Rome at night, experienced the cold and cross country skiing in Canada, walked on frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia and of course ate a dollar pizza and cheesecakes in New York, the city that never sleeps.

Teach, Learn, Share

We both like to travel a lot and as we said, meet new people, new cultures and lifestyles.

LUCE: I am a French teacher, I play piano, share my ideas, my travels, my enthusiasm and others ideas of traveling.

BENJAMIN: I am also a French teacher and used to play saxophone. I am interested in all imaginable subjects, numbers, facts and more numbers. I like sharing everything I know, primerly facts and numbers in life which could sound crazy.

What I Can Share with Hosts

We can share all the mouth-watering experiences we had, filled with valuable tips. We can talk about our culture, our language, our lifestyle, about the cities and countries we've visited and all kind of subject since we're open-minded people.
By the way, we can both cook the french cuisine and delicious french pastries and cakes.
