to enjoy every little bit
I'm an easy going guy, quiet, and respectful.
I'm quite an active person but also like to be lazy, not too long though I get bored quickly, always up for doing anything that could be interesting.
I can be very silent sometimes, it doesn't mean I'm moody or I have a problem with you it's just that talking for the sake of talking is something I don't do, if I have nothing interesting to say I simply don't talk. Sometimes silence is enough :)
Don't worry I can also be talkative, I'm always up for an interesting conversation :)
can be funny, even on myself...
Actually this section is boring, what are words to describe someone ? not enough for sure, you'll see if we meet :)
Self inquiry is the way :) and for me the only one.
I'm trying to find my answers every day when I walk when I talk when I think, eat, piss or work, and the more I learn the less I know, which is kind of amazing and has led me to not be afraid of the unknown and even to look for it with a kind of excitement.
I don't know if life has a meaning, what is after death, if there is a god or a big unity in the universe, these are just theories from and for people eager for ready-made answers.
I know it brings me much more happiness to be nice to people so I do it.
I know I don't have the control on anything so I try to let go and see.
I know relationships makes me more happy than things, so I keep my friends and don't buy useless stuff.
I know words can be very powerful so I'm careful with them.
I know I'm egocentered but I still don't know how to stop it :)
And that's pretty much it...
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Actually travelling, I use CS mostly to find people for hosting or for meeting, I'm on the "receiving" side of it, one day I'll be on the "giving" side of it :)
On this trip I've been hosted in almost all the countries I crossed since I left France, it's funny to see how people see hosting very differently, it has always been a good experience.
I've seen sometimes people hosted with me in the same house taking advantage of the host's generosity without even feeling bad about it, that's a shame.
I've been hosted by such great people, sometimes I can't believe it when I think about it :)
I'm travelling a lot these days, by bicycle at the moment, I stop when I feel good or move when I feel like it.
I used to read a lot, especially books that have something to teach, the only problem with books is that it's so heavy in a backpack :)
I used to work in kitchens between two trips, so i'm not so bad at cooking, and I really like doing it. So of course I like eating :)
I like to spend time with my family when I can, with friends, partying sometimes.
Above all I love to go in the unknown nature with a tent, to get lost in mountains or on a desert beach with only the nature and a good friend, feeling the calm of nature is something very inspiring and relaxing.
Really fond of music, I always have a melody in my head, can't play any intruments unfortunately. I used to attend to music festivals, as a volunteer or not, it makes me fly.
I enjoy juggling, with balls at the moment, I'd love to improve with hammers.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've been to Burkina Faso in 2011, I took a flight from Paris, 4h after I was in Ouagadougou, a couple of days after I was in a school in a village in the middle of nowhere with no electricity no running water, surrounded by people who were hardly speaking my langage, in front of 82 children who were waiting for a maths of french or history lesson. I had never been a teacher before, that was really hard and amazing at the same time, in the end I think I have learnt more than I have taught...
Teach, Learn, Share
Well I can teach the few things I know with a great pleasure, but isn't it important to learn by yourself ?
I can teach french, english (to the worst english speaker maybe), juggling, how to make pancakes, pizzas and how to mix what you have in your fridge in a very edible dish !
I can fix your computer, help for your website and explain you why this f***** machine refuses to start.
