About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind. ~Seneca

ABOUT ME

I'm originally from France but I've been travelling a lot and have to admitt I haven't seen my high school friends much in the past few years... I love travelling and meeting people from all over the world! I'm very open-minded and always in a good mood! :)

I've been working and studying in quite a few places. I m now working for a road engineeing company. And as my contract involves me moving of business Unit every 3 months, I keep travelling; I've been working for the same company in Erstein (alsace), Chateau-thieery (picardy), Brest (Brittany), Nantes (pays de la loire) ,Nice, Paris, Dijon....for the same company. I've now (january 2014)quit my job for one in.... Africa! and then... life is full of surprises, we'll see what happen! :)

I love partying as much as I love nature, animals and walks in the country side. I love swimming and running. I always try to make every situation a funny one. Don't be surprised, I do not need to drink to jump all around... don't be scared, I just have the Lion King philosophy: HAKUNA MATATA!! ;D

I'm looking forward to meeting you! :D

ps: waow... I wrote this a while ago... still valid! One correction: am currently living in Equatorial Guinea.

PHILOSOPHY

Do never do to somone what you wouldn't like him to do to you

and a few quotes (sorry, some are in French): "aucune grâce extérieure n'est complète si la beauté intérieure ne la vivifie" - Victor Hugo

"Life is not measured by the numbers of breaths we take BUT by the moments that take our breath away"

"On ne voit bien qu'avec le coeur, l'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux" - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

"L'avantage d'être intelligent c'est qu'on peut toujours faire l'imbécile, alors que l'inverse est totalement impossible" - Woody Allen

"Hakuna Mattata" - Lion King

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've promoted this website as much as possible ever since I discovered it and I think that's a great idea!! :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

yep! and no regrets!!! Every single person I had the oppotunity to host was great! : ) I met awesome people thanks to a few CS events (especially in Montreal, Canada; Nice, France and Paris, France), met wonderful human beings thanks to the access of who lives in the cities I'm visiting (a thought for Birmingham, United-Kingdom). I guess unlike facebook which is made to keep contacts, this one is made to make some and I'll keep using as long as life allows me to keep travelling.
