About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel, meet new people, learn more

ABOUT ME

I'm 25, now working as research assistant in economics and sociology.

My main travels were in South America, and I'have also worked in Israel and the Palestinian Territories. I wanna work in international organizations, in developing countries if possible.

PHILOSOPHY

Having critical spirit and make everything to change what should change.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I participate by surfing when I have vacations, and I'm now able to host in the apartment we share with 4 friends.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My main travel experiences weren't with couchsurfing. I've only used it during the last summer (2012) to travel in France (travelling from the center to the south by hitchhiking). It was a great experience to do it in my own country ! And I also organized some CS parties when I was in Bangkok.

Interests

Travelling, cinema, music, studying social sciences (anthropology, sociology, demography, economics..), learning about politics, syndicalism, meet new people..

I really like some regions and culture like south america, spain, middle east, maghreb ..

I also love photography when I have time for it (http://www.flickr.com/photos/quentin_deforge/)

One Amazing Thing I've Done
