About Me


Meeting people


Just moved back in Paris.

Was in Canada in 2011, Ivory-Coast in 2012, then Argentina for 3 years... now back to France :)
Hum, me, myself and I? Ok, I think I'm also easy to live, flexible, open-minded, laid back and tolerant. I think everyone is interesting, because different.Things to do in my life:To write a book / To HitchHike from East to West in America / To HitchHike from France to Sweden to Turkey to France / To save lives / To learn, play music / Santiago de Compostella / To live in Paris / To cross the Pyrenees from East to West / To improve the world / To speak English perfectly / To WWOOF / To work as a volunteer for a humanitarian organization for couple of months.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted few events and some friends of mine are now CSurfers thanks to me :)
And I got my first surfers recently, was great!


I had 1 really bad experience (I'll be glad to tell the whole story, the reference is not long enough to explain !) - I think the guy wanted to take advantage of me...
and a lot of really good experiences! I surfed maybe 15 times and I recently started hosting people in Abidjan.First CS experience in India, I've been hosted by a family in DelhiA young man in BodhGaya. It was great, I met people that I wouldn't meet otherwise, I mean just visiting the country. I learnt a lot of things about india and indian culture.I also have been hosted in Toronto in February by 3 different people Jason, Alex and Rob. It also was good experiences, I met people from Toronto, and thanks to them I met other people from Toronto.I've been hosted in Washington by a nice couple and here again, it was a good experience, laid back.I've been hosted in Detroit by a Giustina for a Couch Crash, once again, I really enjoyed the CS experience.I've been hosted in Québec-City by a nice guy and we were... bunch of people, it was super nice, even if a little short.I surfed in Jersey-City some floor space at Rob's place, a lot of people, it was super nice!I surfed at Dave's place with 4 friends of mine, a nice guy, we went for a hiking trip in Ottawa. I stayed few days with Marshall in Chicago who definitly loves France.
I stayed few night at Thierry's place, a French student in Chicago.
I go to CS events in Toronto, and it's a good way to meet nice people.I really met (and I still meet!) nice people through CS.
