About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My current mission? Live my life as if today was my last one. Living a life in a positive way, which means travelling and enjoying as much as possible with what the earth can offer and the people I'll meet through this journey :)

ABOUT ME

A French man from Normandy, a lovely countryside area in the North West of France. I woke up one day and thought: "what's going on around the world? Let's find it out!"

I am just a normal guy who enjoys his life at 200%. Life is too short to stay and do nothing an it has to be lived with passion. I had regrets in the past and swore I will be happy of what I did when the last day will come.

I am dedicated to live my life in the happiest and the most positive way as I can. Let's go and do it!

I am a passionate guy and have been travelling for the last 9 years all around the world. Bodyboarding was the key of my present life style and my dreams.

I am into sports and adrenaline. I am a bodyboarder and that's one of the reason I caught the virus of travelling. I am also a Skydiver (since beginning of 2012). Jumping out of a plane starts to be a kind of routine for me! I am also into rock climbing, scuba-diving, kite surfing.

After 9 years of moving around, I decided to drop off my luggages in Bali, Indonesia, a place where I felt in love with at the first sight. I live in Canggu, close to the surfing breaks for my daily morning session!

PHILOSOPHY

Life your life as today was the last day. Stop being angry. Open your heart to the world and take a deep breath. Enjoy what the earth and people are offering you and do your best to live your life happily.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have not been participating for ages. I am willing to go back into the game! I cannot host but I can meet up people and share some trip stories and tips about the island around a coffee or between few waves :-)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE I have surfed some couches while travelling 3 months and a half in the USA. What an experience! I also met a lot of couchsurfers at different meetins around the country. I did few other meetings in Europe.

Interests

I am interested about getting my dose of daily adreline: bodyboarding and skydiving are definitely a great help for that purpose.

I am not only a crazy man. I love travelling and meeting some exciting people all around the world, Sunsets, cooking French food, looking at people in the street while sipping a coffee, human psychology, Self-Development, meditation

Music, Movies & Books

Movies:
The Butterfly Effect, Spiderman, The Dark Knight, Equilibrium, Scarface

Music:
Metal music, electro, trance, minimal - everything with strong bass! Some 80/90's pop music too.

Books:
I love reading when I have some free time but don't ask me which is my favourite writer. I am generic from that point of view and it will all depends how the first 10 pages are good or not.
I have been doing a lot of personal development the last year and I am reading a lot of books about psychology.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The first time I jump out of a plane...

Teach, Learn, Share

Parlz-vous Français? Or should I say "mangez-vous Français?" I love French cuisine so I can share some tips. If you are not afraid of the ocean, let's go for a swim and surf few waves. Adrenaline junky? Let's jump out of a plane! Just a coffee? Let's go for a walk and let me tell you my 1000 stories!
