About Me

CURRENT MISSION

live all the days like the last & learn as if I lived forever

ABOUT ME

Always interested to discover something that I don't know yet. Most of all I like traveling and meeting new cultures, new people and new different ways of thinking. I love adventure and unexpected. I've already moved around a little bit (some experiences in Africa and a year of traveling all around the Canada and us) but I feel like it's not enough and I'm looking forward to move a lot more !

Quite reserved when I dont know people so much but then when we start to know each other better my shyness takes off. I dont like to talk about myself too much and I dont like people who does it. I believe that you have an interesting conversation only if there is an exchange from both sides.

Even if I'm not a MasterCook, I really like to enjoy great food and every kind of it. And if I'm interested in discovering new stuffs, it also concerns food :) About that, the last thing I've tasted was a "blind restaurant" where you order before entering in the room and then eat in the total dark so you don't see anything in your plate; interesting experience... I hate cooking only for myself but I like to cook and share a meal with people around. It's so much more enjoyable! I I like beers and chocolate and I appreciate even more the good ones. Well well I'm from the country of the best beers and chocolates (don't trust the guys from Germany or Switzerland who could tell you the opposite and, of course, it's a lie :D)

Started university ni Sociology in University of Montreal a few months ago which was something I didn't really thought about before but I enjoy it so far !

PHILOSOPHY

Happiness is a state of mind. You've to create your own happiness because no one else will do it for you.

"The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see." Chesterton

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Ready to host people at my place in Montreal (with 4 awesome roommates) or just have a drink and share some time with new people :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've not a lot of experiences in hosting (in surfing either actually!) yet but I'm waiting for discovering... :)

Interests

friends, family, travels, music, parties, summer (just saying the last one because I'm getting sick of the beautiful-but-too-long canadian winter) and much more.

Music, Movies & Books

all kinds of music (special interest for jazz for now but it might be something else in a few weeks)

movies.. Baraka, Into the wild, Ray (jazz period...), Gattaca. Just thinking about these ones because I've seen them recently. Honestly I've a terrible cinematographic culture but I'm trying to work on it.

books.. La haine de l'Occident by Jean Ziegler, La domination masculine by Bourdieu. They're also my last ones. Not read enough last times for my taste but because of my university readings I'm trying to avoid any more readings for now.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Partying in Mexico for my last birthday with great guys from all over in such a crazy city. Drinking tequila for free and doing mechanical rodeo in bars full of crazy people.

Being on volunteering project in the mountains of Arizona during summer and feeling the high temperatures to 30°C on the morning and seeing a snowstorm on the afternoon.
