About Me


Live life to the full :-)


I lived in India and in France most of my life...:-)
I've also visited a few countries and I appreciate the best sides of each civilisation and try to understand the rest.
I started working in the Internet and business world some 10 years back and I'm now trying to find out a new way of living and working.
I spend most of my time cycling, listening to some good music, and, as I'm a some kind of artist I also have a few crafty activities.
I’m not married and have no children this is the result of a long way to total freedom and independence…I'm now trying to compose my own happiness and find some meaning for all this living.


Life is short...being happy is important !
It's not so hard to get rid of bad things of this society : Money, Power, Hatred , Disdain...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can host for 2 or 3 nigths in a seperate bedroom
Take anyone to a bicycle tour of Paris
Take anyone out for a cultural event (concert, drama, exhibit...)
