PHILOSOPHY

We should live our lives upside down ... Start dying, it would eliminate this trauma that follows us throughout our lives. Waking up in a hospital, then get kicked out for good health. Work, becoming young enough to enjoy life. Partying, going to high school, college. Then become baby. Skip quiet nine months floating. And finally ... Leave this world in an orgasm!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I went to some CS events in Istanbul,
I hosted a few times in Paris and I have just restarted here in Istanbul, always good experiences !

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I hosted Aline from Brazil, the biggest fan from Harry Potter that I have ever met, first experience and good experience.

I hosted Arthur from Germany, we ate Poutine in a Canadian pub in Paris. Just one night together but definitively a good night.

I hosted Franzie and Eva from Austria, and we spent such a crazy time together that I can even not summarize it in one sentence

I hosted Lua, it was like having the Brazil in my house in Istanbul, mix of all the cultures that I like.

I went to Chien’s home in Amman, he was my first host, and the best one of course :-)

I hosted Jacques and Marion from France, I spent a perfect week with them, it looked as if we had always been friend, and each moment shared together was great.

Interests

I am quite crazy about sport... I like playing and watching all sports : football, basketball, tennis, athletism, etc. even if, as eveybody knows, FOOTBALL IS THE BEST !
