Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Few years ago, I traveled between Copenhagen (Denmark) and Goteborg (Sweden). I really enjoy my stay to the Astrid Lyra´s home, Soren Bisper´s home (Copenhagen) and Lisa Lecerof´s home (Goteborg).
They gave me a sort of passion about travel :) and manners to discover people, way, cities and many more.


Sport everyday, music everyday, painting, reading, photography and movies addict. I'm also into cooking (I'm vegetarian and love to experiment dishes). Oh and, you know Urbex ? It's my favorite spare-time. It's when you visit abandoned places and took some photo/video. I love abandoned castles and there is a lot of it in France. I have a facebook page for my photography :

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Go to India, take a slap (in my brain), and discover that we are far too self-indulgent. Miss the plane returning to France, have feeling of living a dream. Never-forget-the look-of life-of Indians.

Waving a sign "Big Big Love" on the flange of the brooklyn bridge.

Saw the band The Cinematic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall.

Go to a party (in an apartment) where there were 200 people.

A NYE in London with 40 degrees of sick fever.

Organize a show for a NYC band (Elysian Fields)

See a wolf when I was in a cab in Quebec.

Drown in a river in the Ardèche...

Teach, Learn, Share

Before my studies in Music Marketing I studied in Cooking School so I can prepare something tasty. A little bit of everything if I have a Soul-Funk music in a background sound.
