About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Back to Paris for a while

ABOUT ME

Once upon a time Greg and I met each other on the benches of the geography university in Paris. But don't ask us the capital of Kyrgyzstan, geography studies was just a good excuse to travel... Six years later,we and our geography and urbanism diplomas moved to Canada for a year...After a great trip through Canada and the United States, from the north to the south and the east to the west, we're back in Paris, but not for long...

PHILOSOPHY

- Always looking back in the kitchen to check if a velociraptor is around
- Eating a Double Wooper while watching a Jason Bourne movie (nobody is stronger than JB !)
- Never lose an occasion to ride mountains
- Always trying local food even if it's a mexican pepper
- Always looking for hidden/abandonned/ruined places
- Always diving in the sea whatever the weather,

After all, Always coca-cola.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We couchsurfed 12 times during a 15days road-trip from Montreal from Vancouver meeting new people everyday in a different state. Meeting locals is definitely part of our travel philosophy. Now it's time to host !

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Since we discovered it, we're surfing as often as possible, it was an awesome experience each time...And that's only the beginning...
The best of it, we now have some couchsurfers friend and we're still visiting each other when we can!

Interests

Needless to say traveling...So...
We do like discovering new cities by bike when it's possible.

We like sports very much as tennis, badminton, handball and especially SOCCER & SKI. We can't wait to discover new sports as Baseball, Basketball, Hockey etc.

We're fond of skiing so we'll try the Rocky mountains slopes, water sports so we'll ride california waves, or may be hawaiian if we're lucky, hiking, so we'll climb Alaska mountains...

As sport gets us hungry, we're fond of cooking...and eating too...We're french, sorry! Always up for tasting typical food...
We love creative things, photography, we're making movies, not exactly the children of Coppola yet, but we're working on it !

Music, Movies & Books

From music that makes us feel on the beach (Jack Johnson, Donavon Frankenreiter,Amos Lee, the Beach boys, G.love), to classic & bouncy Hip-Hop, and folk music and country music(Ray Lamontagne, Bon Iver, Mumford and sons etc.) that goes so well while driving trhough beautiful landscapes...

Actually, we do like all kinds of music...And above all, we do like discovering new artists...So bring your ipod !
