About Me

My name is Paul, I'm 26 and I come from France! 🇫🇷 More precisely from Alsace, a region located in the East of the country, near Germany.
I used to work as a rocket engineer in Germany 🚀🇩🇪 but I quit my job to do a long bike trip 🚴🏼‍♂️.

I am indeed cycling with my sister and my cousin in South East Asia, and we want to cycle back to Europe following the Silk Road: Come Bike Home! 🚲🌍 Check out where we are: 😉

A few years ago, I spent 6 months around the world for a project about alternative energies💡 have a look: 🎥😉

Finally, with an increasing awareness of the environmental crises, I created last year "ma Propr'Aventure", a service to promote slow and local travels 🚲🚉🛶, as an alternative to flying and driving. 🚫

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've started to use Couchsurfing when I was in the US to meet new people. It's a perfect way to meet locals, new travelers and to find wonderful plans/events abroad 😊


Travelling and so many other things!
I am really into music (guitar, piano, saxo, ukulele), sport (rowing, badminton, running), and just meeting new people ! 🎉

Music, Movies, and Books

Music begins where words end.
Mostly rock, 80's, country, but I love discovering new music types 😉
Play several instruments.

I like reading books from many different styles. Thrillers, ecological oriented, adventure...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- grilling marschmallows on a lava flow in Hawaii
- swimming with wild dolphins in Hawaii
- 3-day boat cruise on the Amazon river
- taking the transsiberian train through Russia until the Baikal Lake
- partying and enjoying the carnival in Rio de Janeiro
- getting lost in the mongolian steps

And two humanitarian projects in Cameroon and Peru :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I would be happy to share some vegetarian recipes, some guitar or piano, some insights into the French language,...

I myself love learning more cooking recipes too, the local traditions/cuisine/drinks and practice foreign languages!

Lots of stories, good discussions and unforgettable moments :)
