Join Couchsurfing to see Fred’s full profile. It’s free!
I was a French chef who has 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 to everyone, obviously...). I settled down in south of France.I live in the old part of Narbonne and enjoy biking and hiking around, good food, good wine and nice people around me.
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.
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.
