ABOUT ME

Don't know what to say..let others do it through references :)

PHILOSOPHY

"The smiles that you give always come back to you"
Indian Proverb

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” - St. Augustine

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain

“A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.” - Lao Tzu

"Le vrai voyage, c'est d'y aller. Une fois arrivé, le voyage est fini. Aujourd'hui les gens commencent par la fin."

"Try not to become a man of success
but rather to become a man of value."
ALBERT EINSTEIN

"don't tell me how well you're educated, just tell me where and how you travelled "

I want my life to be an eternal learning process

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

After having enjoyed hosting some people in Paris, enjoy surfing couches, attend to meetings and spread the word to all the nice people that I meet and who are not on CS.
