I'm The Timid Adventurer. I go on adventures but timidly. You can contact me for a coffee or a drink in Paris, but I can't host due to lack of room.
Once I took a trip around the world, and it lasted one year.
I want to change the world. At my scale, it means changing the lives of people around me for the better, by doing beautiful things, having ideas and discussions with people, being curious and give back, throwing parties and listening to music.
I'm curious. If I go somewhere, I want to see it all, to know it all, to feel the lives of people before me, to listen and to tell everything I lived, after, when I'm back.
So you could say I'm open minded. I love culture. I live for that. And for creation. I love having ideas about things, they're the best.
And I take pictures. It could be kind of my job. My big project now I came back is to make something out of the material I amassed in my trip. Exhibitions, books...
"Tout s'arrange, même mal."
"Everything will work itself out, even badly."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I welcomed visitors in Paris by showing them around, and as soon as I can, I'll host people in my small Parisian flat :)
I traveled a bit in Oct.08 and met a few CouchSurfers! I was hosted by wonderful people in Vienna, Berlin and at the last minute in Stockholm. I was always positively surprised by the CSers I met, even when it was just for a coffee or a walk :)
Recently I came back from 1 year around the world, travelling in in Mongolia with two experienced CSers and one CSer to be, I was hosted in China, Japan, Argentina, Chile and the US! And I also hung out with various other CSers in Singapore, Korea, Bolivia...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've said good-bye to my friends, kissed my family and took my backpack for one year around the world. Then, the awesome lasted for 372 days.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can cook (but not very well), I can sing (but not very right), I can tell jokes (but I forget the ending)
I can teach you a little bit about photography and perhaps show you some pictures I took...
Also, you can ask me about my travels.
