About Me


Feeding my soul and melting with others, to grow better from day to day... (vast program??)


I´m a peaceful guy, who like to talk and meet different people with different backgrounds.

Like much more nature than noisy cities, but my curious mind leads me to lots of different places...


Open your eyes and mind, and listen to the messages of the wind as days go by (personal leitmotiv)
"Fais que ton rêve dévore ta vie afin que ta vie ne dévore pas ton rêve!" (St Ex)
"Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in." (L. Cohen)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been using couchsurfing a lot during my trip in South America in 2011/2012, in countries such as Brasil, Uruguay, Argentina and Chili.
Now that i've got back to France, when i'll have a place of my own, i'd be glad to make it the other way!!


I first dicovered couch surfing in Brasil, and my first experience was very good!(i have to thank my CS brasilian godfather for that!)
Since then, i´ve been using it in most of the places i´ve been travelling to.


Slackline, Nature, poetry, reading, cooking, discovering new places,walking on and on, meeting different people...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Travelling through Brasil was for me an incredible experience because of the warmth of brasilian people!
One recent thing that hit me was to see a picture of my little nephew succeeding in standing on his two feet!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can cook a bit, i´m interested in origami, juggling...
I´ll be glad to share these skills!
On the other way, what i´d like to learn? Quite a lot of things... For the moment, i´m very interested in learning about the culture of the countries i´m visiting!
