ABOUT ME

When I began cs, I was in journalism and communication BA degree. Then, I realize that I really love to travel and meet people. I went to Quebec city to live one year, came back in Belgium for my master degree in digital communication, went to Montreal in exchange student, finished my studies and 6 months later, I was in a round-a-world trip with my travel and blog mate Julie.

I try to become a nomadic person thanks to the technology : I can make website, communication and photographies. I can travel (slowly) and work or exchange services. I used to be photographer for press, small webmaster for associations but I also worked for the European Parliamant and Voyages-Sncf (french train) before the world trip. So many experiences that I can value now :)

Now, I have settled down to take care of my house so I can host in Auderghem, South East part (locality) of the city of Brussels.

With my couchsurfers guests, I really like to show them my city (Brussels) and spend time with them. When I am hosted, I can be independant or really sociable, depending on my host. I like to have fun, to laugh but not like a party animal. I prefer joking, good conversation and beer or wine (not to be drunk). I like the fact that hosting/being hosted makes the contacts so easy :) Some of the cs I met in Canada and France are good friends now, as well in Bendigo (Australia) and Dunedin (New Zealand).

For the rest, well there is my blog (no ad, free) : www.au-tournant.org and the facebook page www.facebook.com/dumondeautournant

PHILOSOPHY

EN I don't think that God exists but it's my own philosophy and I have no problem with catholics, muslims or someone else.
I think you live between 70 et 90 years ; now I am young. So i want to live for the fullest.

FR Je suis athée mais je respecte les philosophies et la religion de chacun.
J'aime profiter de la vie ; je suis jeune est j'aime vivre intensément ; je sais que nous ne vivons pas longtemps alors je ne veux pas perde de temps.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am on couchsurfing because is one of the ways to meet people : local people, foreigners people who lives in my city or the city I visit. A good way to be in contact, to have a good experience of life.

I want to be in a positive movement and I found in csers more that positive moment, even if it is not always an happy day, the positive waves I need and want to share.

It is so easy to meet interesting people and have non-tourist experience thanks to people who will help you to build your path, thanks to their connexions, their wish to live happiness with you and because they also want to be feeded by the experience I have. It is a good sharing way and cs (how it was in 2007-2010) really change my perspective of thinking life.
