About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be a real RockNRolla

ABOUT ME

Well! If you read this text that means you click on my profile because:
1) You're looking for a couch
2) I'm looking for a couch and I sent you a request (go directly to the section 'WHY I'M ON COUCHSURFING')
3) I post something on CS and you're just curious to know who I am.
4) Someone told you something about me (and hope it's positive) and you just want to check it by yourself.

I'm french and I live in Paris. I like travelling and share my experience with people I can meet during my trips. I'm laid back, very open minded and always up for a good time and meeting people from all over the world.
I'm always ready for new adventures!

PHILOSOPHY

Each time I'm in doubt with something, I ask to the man in the mirror.

We are all here for some special reason. Stop being a prisoner of your past, become the architect of your future!

Belief & Technique for Modern Prose (Evergreen Review, vol 2, n°8, 1959) applied to life

You must live in the present,
launch yourself in every wave,
find your eternity in each moment.

Don't panic.

Carl Sagan 4EVER!!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

First of all, you have to know if you host me, you definitely welcome to stay at my place when you'll come in Paris (dates to define together).
Also, if I contact you for a place in your home it's more to know you, your friends and have a local vision of your city/country than to crash your couch (I'm enough independent to book a bed in a hostel).
I like to organize events in the cities I visit to meet locals and travelers (who can be great success or epic fail but always had fun!), so I include you in my plans (if you're up of course!).

Interests

Travel, Cinema, Music, Football, Books, go out with friends, the world and all things in it...
