About Me

Pistachio addict, hitchhiker and cheese hater.

I studied a bit of many things from biology to management and business through geosciences and oceanography, though I forgot everything and learned much more while traveling :)

Now living in Addis Ababa and working in development, anyone looking for a place is welcome to crash at mine!

Advice: I think it is always the same profiles of people with already quite a few references poping up on top of the search page when you look for hosts in Addis. So please create an open couchrequest to give a chance to newly registered people to host you :)

Last minute requests only please :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I mainly surfed, but I also hosted a bit back in Paris (20ish surfers). Now giving it back and hosting in Addis Ababa.

I always try to spend some time with my guests to show them around and go for a drink, and with my hosts if they are not too busy.

Music: everything.
Books: Whatever people advise me to read. Can be pretty much everything too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Things that include hunting whales, searching for gold, hiking volcanoes, crazy hitchhiking, PNG, Iraqi secret services etc.

Teach, Learn, Share

I tried to teach French to several friends of mine, but apparently I am not a good teacher ... Sorry !
