About Me

Hi! We are a French-Nicaraguan couple that engages in different kinds of activism to raise awareness on subjects concerning the planet: the nature of human beings, our current economic system, the environment, food and animal welfare. We have served as international volunteers getting involved in different causes ranging from organic farms to helping Tibetan communities in exile. While we have strong convictions, we don't push our ideas on anyone, we believe everyone has the right to make informed decisions.

People would describe us as open minded, very relaxed, friendly and easy going; our priority is to be outdoors in nature as much as possible. We don't smoke cigarettes, we are VERY clean and tidy, love to cook vegan food and most importantly we like to share anything we have, be it our food, stories, good moments... We just love people who love life.

During our two+ year journey in Asia we created the community project and wrote a book about the evolution toward a greener and more collaborative living (check it, it's available on conscious donation):

You can also check our individual blogs:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We believe this can be a good platform to connect with amazing human beings, make friends, share, learn, teach, laugh, eat, create memories, be kind and be in awe of the incredible diversity that exists on our beautiful biosphere.
