About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploring the world!

ABOUT ME

Hello, my name is Thomas, I am from a small town in France and I have been living in Spain for a few years, now living in Barcelona.

I work from home as a freelance internet marketer (before you get the wrong idea, I don't do spam or any similar questionable practices, I do mostly Search Engine Optimization on my own websites), and I enjoy my job which gives me plenty of spare time to do what I love most: traveling and meeting people!

Like most of you I guess, I'm not a big fan of talking about myself but here are a few adjectives that I think describe quite well my personality: intense, cheerful, emotional, crazy (just a bit!), dreamer, sensitive, playful, adventurous, driven, passionate, curious... I also have many defaults but I will let you be the judge of that! Alright I'll give you one, my family say I'd lose my head if it wasn't firmly tied to my body!

My current big dream is to spend a month in the Amazon forest, far removed from the cities and tourists, just traveling and exploring the forest, living with local tribes and discovering the local plants and animals. With just a swiss knife and a a bic lighter to make fire. Alright I'll definitely bring more stuff but you get the idea! I had the whole trip planned in a small group of ten with a very good guide a couple years ago but s**t happened and well I had to postpone it.

PHILOSOPHY

Carpe Diem!

Yesterday is history. Today is a gift, this is why it is called Present. Tomorrow is a mystery.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have hosted a couple people so far, been to a few meetings and met other people personally here and there. I am not always consistent with CouchSurfing, I have my moments just like I have my facebook moments! But mostly I use it to try and meet like minded people to share experiences and daytime activities, discover the area and enjoy a few drinks at the many concerts and festivals Barcelona is famous for.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far so good, I now almost exclusively use CouchSurfing when I want to make new friends or find people for cool activities. What I like the most about CouchSurfing is that it is full of individuals with similar interests as me. People with a thirst to discover and explore as opposed to my french friends who don't seem to find much interesting besides playing video games or watching youtube videos! (I do this too! When I'm bored and can't do something else like hiking, traveling etc...).

Interests

I like traveling, camping (preferably wild!), nature, climbing (anything and everything!), naturopathy/alternative medicine, animals (rid horses during my entire childhood), music (I play the piano and a bit the guitar), languages, having dinner in a nice restaurant in good company, the mountain, snowboarding, video games, extreme sports, movies, adventure, psychology, fitness (yeah I know you can't tell by the pics but it's a work in progress! )... oh and did I mention traveling?

I like many more things indeed, and I would love to meet couchsurfers who share some of my interests and my thirst for adventure to discover Barcelona and the many treasures Cataluna has to offer!
