About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Doing my share in changing the world for the greater good of all!

ABOUT ME

I'm a traveler, a sociable person, a nature lover, an environmentalist, an outdoors and sports adept, a visual concepter, a dreamer...

I love all kinds of : foods (cooking and eating of course!) musics, films, sports, etc. My goal is always to discover and try new things!

PHILOSOPHY

Ultreïa! (Camino de Santiago)

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. (Buddha)

Everything can be taken away from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedom -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way. (Viktor E Frankl)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I had travellers staying in my flat in Montreal before joining CS and I will have more for sure when I will go back.

I travel by myself, but many times I join other like me and I know the meaning of sharing, helping and adapting for travelers. So whenever I can do my part for others, I do my best.

I'm fairly new in CS but I am starting to attend to meeting, to contact nearby travellers, to share transports and I realize that such an organisation can provide great help, security and amazing experiences if used with respect and wisdom.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Meeting strangers on the bus that end up inviting you because they are also couchsurfers!! :D

Being hosted for a longer periode in order to adapt to a new place, sharing accommodation with new CS friends an helping other cs members for jobs, etc.

Meeting in restaurants, BBQ, beaches, pubs, for sports, shows or any kind of events.

The last but the best : The spontanious fully pacted roadtrips with cs members!!

Interests

Travel, Arts, Sports and Outdoors, Culture and History, music, nature, gastronomy, etc.
