About Me

Originally from Guadeloupe (France), I am currently half time student in the UK, working on a project (GIVAGO.CO) to enhance a better world -it sounds really cheesy I know haha-!
I lived in Torquay (Australia) during a wile, then in Bangkok (Thailand) and I am now living in Oxford (England)! I have been backpacking in Australia from Melbourne to Cairns and in Tasmania, then I backpacked in SEA.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am a CS because I am like most of you guys:
I love to meet new people, to try new food and discover insides tips!
Moreover, I love to get people at home, as it permits me to relax and think about something els than university or my routine! It also permit me to travel trough traveler's I am hosting (especially when I am stuck at one place for a wile)!


I have been surfing almost every days (minimum 3 times a week) when I was living in Australia, and I really liked it, I am now trying to continue since I am back in Europe, as I have enjoyed surfing on a regular basis!
I love to backpack and be lost in random places, I am more a country man than a city man! -haha-
I also glided and am really passionate about flying. Unfortunately I haven't practice gliding since a wile...
As you can imagine, because of my work on givago (http://givago.co) I am really concern about the environment, and I am trying my best to make our little change being big revolutions!

Music, Movies, and Books

I like to listen to Pupajim wile reading traveling books such as Africa Trek.
The book and later movie Into the wild really inspired me, and I make the book: "The power of now" by Eckhart Tolle being the road-book of my life.
I also like to read books from Laurent Gounelle (and I strongly recommend you to do so!)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have meet superman when I was gliding over La Roche sur Yon (France)

Sincerely, I have no clue about what to write here, but I wend down the Mekong on a little boat with no motor and 2 friends. We never arrived where we were mean to go, and we almost died, but it was a nice experience haha

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a university student, and I try to enjoy that period of life to discover different culture around the world! I have been studying in Canada, France, England, Australia and Thailand.

I am working on a project on top of uni in order to give back to community for free dedicating one minute of your time! You can do it on http://givago.co

I am now living on a couch at friends in the UK, so I cannot really you a spot (Except if you wanna share the couch?) but wherever I am, I will be pleased to meet you for a drink, grab some food, visit something, and show you some amazing places only locals knows!
