About Me

CURRENT MISSION

A french who wants to travel the world.
Learn to know the human being.
Be my own boss.

I am living from 1st september 2019 in Mexico 🇲🇽

PART 1 : When I host
PART 2 : When I travel
PART 3 : About me

1. WHEN I HOST

If you send me a couch request, please read at least this section (When I host) and "My home" section, and you have approved that.

You can send me a couch request one year in advance as the same day.. I don't care ! I just want to meet and help travelers in the same way they help me when I travel, and spend good times together. I would prefer if you stay more than one night.

I love learn languages, so it would be very appreciated if you can teach me your native language during your stay, or another one that you know better than me. Thanks !

Actually I live in Guadalajara, delegación Tlaquepaque. It's a beautiful "pueblo mágico" (Magic village), my house is located at the famous center.

If in your profile you wrote it, explain what does mean someone "open minded" for you.

If you can't send me a couch request, you can message me by my WhatsApp +33674020502

2. WHEN I TRAVEL

Slow travel style without any plans.
I don't have a precise itinerary, I immerse myself in the unknown.. and I love that !

I use hitchhiking, ask for throw away food, and sleep by homestay or where I can.
I try to travel by using the minimum possible of hotels, restaurants and public transport.

I know it's hardcore mode, but I'm definitely in love with this kind of trip :
You don't know who will bring you somewhere by hitchhiking,
You don't know when and what you will eat,
You don't know with who and where you will sleep,
You don't know which activities you will do for the day,
And so on...

It can be weird or scary for some, but there are so many caring people on earth, more than you think. And if you plan your trip in advance, it's just impossible to meet the people and live the adventures you will get by this way.

For my travels, I hope to discover many landscapes and nice locals or travelers who will make me discover their customs, their history and their country.
In return, I would respect the environment, the fauna, the flora, and I could also help people with pleasure.

The earth is a playground, and the locals and animals friends.

3. ABOUT ME

Until september 2018, I was at university but I didn't like it at all. I don't have the mindset to be at school, so I decided to stop and go on a roadtrip for enjoy my youth and discover the world, something I always wanted to do. I finally stop my travels when I landed in Mexico, living with my girlfriend in this country. I will continue my travels later with her.

I love football and sports in general.
I am from Sospel, at 45 min of Nice, it's a french village between Monaco and the border of Italy with my parents, my brother and my 3 cats 🐈🐈🐈 (RIP Minou - 03/06/2019 🐈).

I like to listen to people talking about themselves. We learn a lot this way on a lot of subjects. I care about the current problems of the earth and humanity : sciences, ecology, environment, politics, economy, AI, religion, philosophy, future... And listen the different thoughts of people.
You can talk about everything, I try to have no filters.

- I am gay friendly but straight, thanks -

PHILOSOPHY

Long live the travel,

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can teach you Baguette langage 🇫🇷
English and Spanish as well 🇬🇧🇪🇸
Being attentive, let the house clean, conversations about everything (no filters).
CS is for meet people and no free hostel, so I love when I spent time with my host all day long during my stay. But if you are not available I can do activities by my own. In any case I hope share as much as possible for considerate you as one of my friends when I leave home.

I see it as a formative journey where everyone can learn from others.
