About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meeting people and sharing.
Discovering the region of Hautes-Alpes and more !

ABOUT ME

Hello guys!
I'm Sebastien, traveler addict. I arrived in last October 2016 in the region of Hautes-Alpes to start a new training in green construction. Before that I was living in one of the most craziest city of France: Paris. I was living there because of my work and also because I grew up there...
It's a very big step for me because I'm starting over. I'm working to put my word, way of living and acts in phase. This is why I left Paris.

In 2013 and 2014 I traveled for a year. Spent most of my time in New Zealand (Working Holiday Visa), did some woofing in Tonga, tramped in Tasmania/Australia, discovered/explored Myanmar and Thailand.

I like meet a new people, sharing a travelling experience and discover a new thing. Share spirit and way of living.
I like talk about a lot a thing, and specially cinema, photo, juggling.
When I visit a new place, I like random walk in the street.
When I meet a new person, I like learn about him, know his history.
People say about me that I'm open minded.

My next step will probably be South America, but before that, I would like to learn Spanish. So it would be my pleasure if you come from South America to show you around, host you if I can and exchange your Spanish for my French.

PHILOSOPHY

Keep moving forward and keeping an open mind.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

CS change my life in so many things.
I improved my english because of it. Met so many great and crazy people. Make friends and I had great experiences.

I don't know very well yet the surrounding of Savines yet, but in summer you can go swimming in the lac of Serre-Ponçon (which is 5 min walk from my place), do a lot of hicking and outdoors activities. In winter, you can go skiing. Well you can do a lot here.
Also, If I can't host you, I can meet you for hang out, take a drink or whatever.
