About Me

Well I got the travel bug, just like everyone here !

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Lots of CS meetings, then surfing... Mostly good experiences, great people, some have become friends.

If you come to Versailles or Paris, I'd be glad to meet or show you around. My place is way too small to receive properly, I long to grab more space in the future.

Interests

I like to go to concerts or bars with live rock music, discover other's playlists, local bands, etc. I sometimes play guitar or bass.

I practice fun sports like roller blade, snowboard, wakeboard, kitesurf...

Other hobbies : backgammon, poker, billard, bowling, shopping, lazin' on a sunny afternoon, good/exotic food (sushiii), macarons & cocktails.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Slammé à un concert des Wampas. Paragliding. Would like to try sky diving too, awaiting the occasion.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm learning Italian, don't hesitate to write or talk to me in that language !

I'm good at web content management, translations and computer stuff if you need.
Can also help you to practice French, show how to make colorful brazilian armbands, or play a few chords like Wonderwall...

What I Can Share With Hosts

What I can say as a surfer :

- I'm tidy, trustful, discreet

- I won't be able to "do some French cuisine" if you ask : my cooking skills are basic and not especially French xD. I can buy food, give a hand in the kitchen, clean... or be my guest for a drink/eating out

- whenever you want to hang out I'm in, if you are busy or tired I can be independent ; we'll share time as you wish !
