About Me

CURRENT MISSION

home renovation

ABOUT ME

I am Bond... a vagabond !
Rather positive, calm, versatile, curious and independent. I am more into the action as into the discution. I might seem a bit reserved at first sight then you just need to scratch a little to find out who is hiding behind. I am very easy to adapt in every situation or people. I love discovering new horizons, new peoples, other cultures or activities.

-> See my refs or add me on FB for more (General Information / My Website").

PHILOSOPHY

My Moto : Just do it (Nike)

My GOALS : keep on discovering new... places, peoples, sounds, tastes, feelings,.. and share all these experiences.

My SELF :I am respectfull for the past, curious for the future but enjoy living in present. I used to have a lot of interests which forced me to live in a rather intensive way but now I am looking for a more relaxing life.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am always up to participate to CS events and I have also organised some of them. I surfed several kind of couches or surfaces and want to keep on meeting, hosting and helping other CS members.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

First of all I feel so lucky for all these amazing moments in this life so far and and I am so grateful to be there to tell you about them.
Honestly I have seen so many beauties on this planet and done so many crazy stuff in this world that I can't tell you only one. So let's categorize :

1. Travels : I had a fantastic time during my roadtrips with my Camper Van "the General Vito" in whole Europe and then with my Taurus "the CANUSA ship" in North America. Anyway my best travel experience remains the round the world trip that I have accomplished for my 30th Birthday. I learned a lot about our world and also about myself.
2. Festivals : Burning man is definitely something apart. Beside of that I have been to most of the major music festival in Europe and seen incredible live acts.
3. Animals : Whale watching at the Peninsula de Valdes/San Juan Island, Safari in Massai Mara, Swiming with Dolphins near Melbourne, fishing piranas in Pantanal, Kayaking with Belugas on the Saguenay, Nightdiving with Manta Ray in Hawaii, ...
4. Nature : Iguazu Falls, Perito Moreno, Altiplano, Uluru, Yellowstone, Kilauea, ...
5. Architectures : Pyramides, Ankor Wat, Coliseo, Mt Rushmore, Dubai, ...
6. Activities : Handgliding over Rio, Bungy jumping in New Zealand, Sandboarding in Atacama Desert, Downhill Biking the road of death, Rafting on the Apurimac, kayaking between the Gulf Islands, ...

Teach, Learn, Share

right now no idea but at least I'll share my happyness my traveling experiences and other stories. I have many music instrument (guitare, ukulele, synthétiser, harmonica, flute, djembe, didjeridoo,...) but I guess no one likes me ! So I keep on learning in order to tame them... at least one a day.
