About Me

Hello couchsurfers and marvelous host!

It's been a decade since I last used this website, some reviews disappeared I see.
Anyway, 2024 just started. I decided to pay to be back here.

I just did some math for the fun of it. I travelled a total of 3 years in my life, by visiting 28 countries.

Born in 88, I'm 35. I care about the happiness of every single living being. I've been vegan for 15 years.

I realized that if I travel an average of 6 months per year during the next 24 years, I could end up at 60 having travelled for a quarter of my life. Looking forward to 12 years of travel sounds stimulating.

Maybe a bit too much, if I'm honest. Planning my trips tend to exhaust me. It's not my favourite part.

Still, I love visiting new places, daily yummy vegan restaurant, good weather, travelling slowly to immerse myself in the local culture and mix with the locals.

I thought that coming back to CS could be a nice way to help me wing my travels.

Booking a hotel for a week or two and living on my own is less stressful to me. I'm an introvert and recharge when I'm alone. But getting out of your comfort zone has it's merits.

CS allows me to meet people I wouldn't meet otherwise, get glimpses in the local life, and create unique memories.

It's 4am, I'll update the rest someday.

Old blabla:

Panonym is a wordplay using Greek, Latin, English and French. It's a spiritual private joke.

Its main meaning is ineffable (which means: that which cannot be named nor expressed), it also means "all the names" + "perhaps without a name or unknown".

I'm easy-going.
Direct, simple, zen attitude, I love chilling.

I'm vegan since 9 years.
I travelled and lived in Asia for two years altogether.

I quenched my thirst for adventures. Now I mostly travel for yummy vegan food, tropical fruits, better weather, and to meet people.

I found a nice place to live in the Swiss Alps, 'bought two couches.

I live in a lost place, but I'm ready to receive people from all over the world.

Whatever your origins, beliefs, skin color, gender, born-sex, age, neurodiversity, orientation/attraction, 'everybody is welcome.

Please start your message with IntroRead so I know you've read something.

Humans are very odd to me.
I'd love to hear about your travels, experiences, and what passionate you in life.

Personally I have a big interest in existential questions, how people perceive existence, what is experimented, their belief, etc.
I consider myself very open-minded.

I'm into zetetic. Doubt elevated to the art level.
I apply a scientific mindset in my researches.
Close to everything appear as mere possibilities to my eyes.
I'm a psychonaut into spirituality ('may not mean anything, but that point the idea).

I'll let you read about my village and Couch Information on the left. [Now under "My Home"]

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In Laos, with everything stolen, without money, passport nor even shoes, I met a beautiful Japanese girl who helped me and invited me to Japan. Realizing my childhood dream to live in Japan. 100% unplanned.
Six months of paradise.
Lots of amazing things happened in my life.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share what the oldest Buddhist scripture teach (specifically the Abhidhamma, the "higher teaching" of the Theravada school).

I can share what I know about yoga, about my studies and the practice of meditation.

I can share thousands of questions that may blow your mind, give you staggers, and possibly change your life.

Or stay focus on more restful and ordinary subjects.
I can share my delight for a slow living style, chilling, tea, etc.

Happy to share about our life experiences, our world view, belief and understanding - or lack of it.

Always happy to practice and improve my Japanese ^.^
