About Me

I am a young man (yes, 28 is STILL young ^^), happy to live, and starting to discover the world (I've been told it's never too late !).

I am interested in almost everything, except maybe contemporary art ^^ Otherwise, I'm always happy to learn about other's experiences and hobbies !

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've been using Airbnb to travel, but sometimes I felt a lack of human exchanges, which I was searching for while traveling.
So after discussing with one host, he told me that he was also using Couch Surfing, which I did not know.
Since I use Couchsurfing, it has been a second nature for me, and it is always a pleasure to host people and discover new cultures ! I am really looking forward to meet new people ! It will remind me my 6 month experience when I was in Sweden with Erasmus program :-)

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite music : Comme toi, by Jean-Jacques Goldman. It is the story of a father singing to his daughter about a polish girl who was living happily, until some people decided otherwise.

My favorite movie : God Bless America. It is for me an accurate criticism of society, with some fun jokes :-)
More generally, I like Science Fiction movies ^_^

My favorite book : Schachnovelle, of Stefan Sweig (I only read the french translation). It is about two chess players on a boat, one being the world's champion, and the other one just a man jailed many years and who only played in his head.
I like other novels of Stefan Sweig, but also books from Stephen King :-)
I think I really enjoy Science Fiction books and philosophical books such as Bernard Werber's, who writes books which are amazing stories, while making you think about life, science, humanity, and loads of other stuff :-)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teaching ? I really like it, and so far, all my students have been happy with the counseling I've been able to provide them. I feel more like a coach than a teacher.

But isn't coaching only teaching ? Or is it the way around ?

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to teach, and can provide assistance in mathematics, physics, electronics, computer coding (mainly Matlab, C, some C++), some Linux.
I'm really interested in economics (but have no background in it, just like it) and also real estate investment :-)

Otherwise, I love to learn. About everything and anything !

What I Can Share with Hosts

I think that sharing is caring, and I care a lot about other people, so I love to share :-)

Countries I’ve Visited

Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey

Countries I’ve Lived In
