Voyager pour briser les préjugés
I'm a peaceful, open-minded and uncomplicated person. A serious dreamer, is probably the best way to summarize myself!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I host people and i have surfed a few times
CS makes one travel different. Having contact with reliable persons, helped me a lot during my travel in Benin, Africa. It's a place, where tourism is not very developed yet. And it's not always simple, when you arrive at a place where everything is different. Having a contact person, gives one some safety. It was really a great time.
I'm a bit an outdoor freak, who likes all kind of adventure sports. Most recently, I discovered the joy of travelling by bicycle! In the category of sport, I have also been practicing Judo for a long time (over ten years) and love to play chess, if we can call it a sport ;-).
Meeting people, learn about their cultures and way of life, is usually the most exciting part when I am travelling.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
A day with fishermen from Grand-Popo (Bénin, Africa). The boat was made of a single tree and we sailed 10 hours on the sea. Besides being sea sick, it was an incredible experience!
