Join Couchsurfing to see Jonathan’s full profile. It’s free!
Back in 2013 I was an architect. One day I realized I didn't like my life and needed something more... I took a plane to Rio and then started the craziest story ever.
I became a professional poker player, bought a motorbike, crossed the continent, met thousands of people and was taught what u don't learn at school... writing, driving moto, psychology, meditation, love, empathy, philosophy. I changed my point of view on pretty much everything. I wrote a blog, which then became a book : http://www.amazon.fr/Récit-joueur-itinérant-Jonathan-Salamon/dp/2755617721/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1449139471&sr=8-1&keywords=recit+d%27un+joueur+itinerant )
I became a strange mix of writer/blogger/pokerplayer/traveller.
Right now, I'm planning on writing my second book.
