About Me

CURRENT MISSION

discover,meet, share

ABOUT ME

I was a French chef who have been travelling a lot around Asia. I've been welcomed by locals in so many different countries that I feel it's time for me to open my small place (but not everyone, obviously...). I settled down in south of France, but I might hit the road again any time soon...I live in the old part of Narbonne and enjoy biking and hiking around, good food, good wine and good people around me.

PHILOSOPHY

Become what you are.

Strangers are just family you have yet to know.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I welcome travelers who are interested in sharing something with me, who want to visit me not because they don't know where to sleep but because they want to get to know me and have the time to let me get to know them.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
I really enjoyed hosting for 2/3 years. I met amazing people, and we had great fun. Lately, I get more and more requests from people who just need a free place to sleep. A lot of them never host, or even fill up their profile. They copy and paste the same request and don't even take the time to read my profile and see if we have anything to share. Couchsurfing is going down, and it's sad.
