About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"Le véritable voyage de découverte ne consiste pas à découvrir de nouveaux paysages mais à avoir de nouveaux yeux." - Marcel Proust

ABOUT ME

I think that I'am a cool guy, part time geek, part time fella, like to go out, meet people, listen good and bouncy music, dance and at the same time take time for me to read, exercise, meditate, discover by myself and rest.

Also loving gardening, cooking, reading, sundays "promenade" and cosy places with nice people.

PHILOSOPHY

- Karma believer: Do Good Things & Good Things Will Come Your Way.
- Work hard / Appreciate days off.
- Don't be a Hater!
- Never Stop Learning Because Life Never Stops Teaching

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

By being me, as a simple human trying to do my best to make a better world.
I've been hosting and hanging out with nearly 100 Couchsurfers from all around the world on a 7 year period in my appartement in France (when I use to live in Bordeaux).

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE (countries where I have been using CS - Mostly to connect and hang-out with locals - ) :

Ibiza / Guadeloupe (French caribbean island) / Ireland / England / Netherlands / California (US) / Colorado (US) / Canada / Israel / Spain / Croatia / Thailand / Colombia / Peru

Interests

Exchange, meet people discovering different cultures and ways of living, having nice journey, meet locals, practice my English and improve my Spanish.

I'm pretty concerned about improving human rights with new drug policies. I use to be the executive director of "NORML France" for 2 years, and I'm still active on cannabis and hemp laws reform in France.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Having a 8 hours trip with Mexican mushroom with 10 of my friends, laughing to death, that was a wired near dead experience whuu! (I don't really recommend).

Retreat in the Peruvian jungle near Iquitos for 10 days to do 8 Ayahuasca ceremonies with one of the most famous Maestro in the world (I really recommend).

Teach, Learn, Share

CouchSurfing is not about the furniture, not just about finding free accommodations around the world; it's about making connections worldwide.

We make the world a better place by opening our homes, our hearts, and our lives. We open our minds and welcome the knowledge that cultural exchange makes available.

We create deep and meaningful connections that cross oceans, continents and cultures. CouchSurfing wants to change not only the way we travel, but how we relate to the world!

** PLEASE NOTICE : COUCHSURFING IS A COMMUNITY, NOT A FREE BED AND BREAKFAST, PLEASE CONSIDER THIS SO FILL YOUR PROFILE IF YOU WANT TO SURF MY COUCH : INTERESTS / MUSIC / TRIP PHILOSOPHY / PHOTOS / [...].
