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

PART 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 it.
- Write "OLE" somewhere in your couch request to prove me that you read member's profiles before contacting them and that you agree with the home rules.
- If you wrote that you are open-minded in your profile, explain what does mean someone "open minded" to you.

You can send me a couch request one year in advance as the same day. I want to meet and help travelers in the same way they help me when I travel. I would prefer if you stay more than one night.

You can message me by WhatsApp +33674020502 ⚠️ ONLY if I already accepted your couch request, or if it's a last minute request and you have no time to wait my answer, thank you.

PART 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 hitchhike and sleep by homestay.

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 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 the people who only travel as a basic tourist, but there are so many caring people on earth, more than we can 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 with pleasure.

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

PART 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.
Since this decision, sometimes I am travelling, sometimes not.
When I'm not travelling, I mainly work.

I love football and sports in general.
I am from a french village at 40min to Nice, 25min to Monaco and 7min to Italy.
When I am in my village, I live with my parents and our 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 -

What I Can Share with Hosts

Being attentive, conversations about everything (no filters).
I can teach you Baguette langage 🇫🇷
We can also talk in English and Spanish 🇬🇧🇪🇸

I always read the profile before sending a couch request, so if you receive one from me, it's because I read your bio, I liked it and I really want to meet you.
CS is about 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. 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.
