About Me

I'm Nicolas a french chef who actually work in oslo, Norway.
I previously worked in UK, USA, sri lanka, maldives.

I like to meet people from all over the world. Even though I can't host anyone in my actual place, I'll be glad to be your guide.

I've been to 27 countries so far but its never enough

My next plan are :

2023 : Visiting Peru and Bolivia in march/april
And then hopefully small trip to portugal (madeira and lisboa) / Edimburg (scotland) /..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can't host people where i am actually , but i will be glad to be your guide to show you around the touristic and non touristic spot.


I met couchsurfers while i traveled in Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan , i stayed at few places also one close to merapi in indonesia, in lumut Malaysia, and different cities in Taiwan. It was wonderful experiences, and i like how open minded people are on here when its time to share about their culture.
I also use the hangout section, so far i only met cool and interesting person thru this app thats why I'm still using it.


Im not on this app for the free accommodation but to be able to discover a country from his citizen. And I think CS is the best way to be able to live that. Indonesia and malaysia are beautiful because of their people so I want to be able to see their country from their eyes and escape time to time the touristic side of those country. I had great memories in Indonesia and Malaysia and i hope i'll get other amazing experiences on my future travel

I'll be glad to cook with you, for you and enjoy some time in your city

A simple yes can take you on the biggest adventure.

Hit me up if you wanna meet around a table or discover the city together


When i travel somewhere, the first point of interest for me is the local gastronomy, i'm a chef and i love discovering street food

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My solidarity project in Mali where I worked and lived with the local for 3 weeks. It was the most emotional and beautiful experience I had. It's even not explainable.

Or while I was in Seoul I met my Korean friend and we were with bunch of her friends from all other the world and we spent the night in the night market eating amazing and tasty food while drinking and playing Korean drink game. It was fun and nice to see all those nationalities around a single table. Best travel souvenir

In Lumut with my couchsurfer host, we went to the school where her dad was teaching it was a short but memorable and touching experience

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach french food, and all the pleasure of a table (wine, bread, ...)

I search to discover other culture, language, food, ...
