let's go exploring
Pfff how you wanna answer that ? Well to give a general overview, I would say I am rather curious, very flexible with people, I love to share their enthusiasm for things that I do not know, have a glance of life through their prism. I am more or less a wanderer, wondering what we are doing there but usually i find no clear answer so I rely on spontaneity, energy and action. Let's go exploring ! Basically I always think "yes" when I am proposed to do something, as I dont wan't to miss things because of barriers in my mind. To describe the way I try to travel I like the word serendipity.I am too lazy to load pictures so if you wanna see some you can go there: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/fbx/?set=a.101360086559763.3018.100000573159452&l=2d2b753d1bandhttp://www.facebook.com/media/set/fbx/?set=a.101450979884007.3236.100000573159452&l=3596fa5ec7

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I saw the website randomly on the web and i thought it was a great idea, kind that brings the best in people so I decided to join, I am often abroad for working and then for traveling (I am currently working on rotation basis, on seismic projects around the world, 7 weeks on working every day and 6 weeks off where I travel a bit), so I may not always be able to answer positively to couch request as I am not often at home but if I am, you are more than welcome to come over.
I did not have a home for more than 4 years because of my job which is more a lifestyle than a simple job. Since 4 years I have slept on many couches, on many countries. I started to use CS from 2011, first experience was in St-Petersburgh and it was... Words are missing. I remember thinking that on the roof of the Kazan church early morning. watching the sunrise. We were several CS and we finished on russian TV for a doc about Couch Surfing,http://www.5-tv.ru/news/42009/.I have been welcomed by so many people in so many places that I feel I don't deserve all this kindness. I hope to be able to give back what I have been given by welcoming people in my place now that I have my own, in Toulouse, so feel free to ask if I am not traveling.
human relationship mechanisms, traveling, hiking, books, discovering, music, photography, sports, geography, movies, blablabla, the whole world interest me, the one that is not described on the breaking news.
Music, Movies, and Books
Pfou! too long to fill. Music is probably the shortest way to the soul and it has quite an important place in my life. I have rather broad horizons, as long as it talks to me. If I have to quote only one name I would say Bob Dylan I guess. I love to watch documentaries (such as "women are heroes") or foreign movies, especially Asian movies about old time in China or Korea. I love the Big Lebowski, Arizona Dream Clint Eastwood, and others. Regarding books, I love dostoieveski, tolstoi, kundera, claude levi strauss, Raymond Depardon who has wonderful books of travel and photography, but the best is probably to speak about that when we will meet
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
It depends of the person who looks. Humility is something you need in life to be harmonious with others. I prefer to keep things that count in my life to speak about it when we will meet.
Teach, Learn, Share
share as much as possible, learn as much as possible, teach what I can.
