About Me

CURRENT MISSION

See the world

ABOUT ME

Left my job and my life in New York to see the world in December 2011. Since then i've been traveling through South America, Australia and South East Asia. I'm really into foreign languages and cultures. Everywhere i go i try to learn as much of the local language as i can, by that i mean more than the average tourist, and i'd like to think i'm quite good at it ! My goal is to do an actual turn around the world, left France traveling to the west, will come back from the east.

PHILOSOPHY

Sky'sthe limit

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

No couch for the moment since I don't really have a home, but i'll definitely host as soon as I get to a more stable life ! Meanwhile use CS to find host or just people to hang out with and learn from on my way.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

A few experiences throughout south america, all positive ! CS is a real community with strong ethics, and it's amazing to see that there is always a couch wherever you go !

Interests

Traveling, music, movies/TV shows, learning languages, reading

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Swim with pink dolphins in Bolivia's amazonian region, surrounded by alligators and piranhas that won't get close to you just because, according to the guide, the dolphins are "the king of the river and no one hunts when they're around" Discover scuba-diving, dive throughout South East Asia, and find out that there's as much to see underwater as on the ground, which put my trip into perspective
