About Me

I like having conversations while sharing a cup of something... To talk of what we are deep inside, of what makes us who we are.
To share differents points of view, experiences, laughing about anything or just enjoy being staring at the fireplace. I'm an easy going person, curious and generous.
I guess i'm full of different facets, i'm not stuck in one way of thinking or one lifestyle and i believe we can be more than that.
I grew up on a boat until i was 10, then later i started to travel, a lot, anywhere, hit the road and meet some people. Now i'm more settled but i keep moving regularly, the need to live a life full of adventures remains.

"True courage is about being honest with yourself."

Birds flyin' high, you know how I feel
Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by, you know how I feel
River running free, you know how I feel
And this old world is a new world and a bold world
Oh freedom is mine
It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me
And I'm feeling good
-Nina Simone-

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The world needs this. We need each other. Please feel free to come !


Share a smile with a stranger, trying to reach wisdom while staying innocent, sleep in peace when day is done, hugging someone i love, challenges, vegetarian cooking, grape-picking, biking, hiking, running, climbing, calisthenics, lot of sports, traveling thousands and thousands km of hitch hiking, sharing with people, preparing my bag-pack, a movie in bed, reading a book in a hammock, coffee in the morning...
Also I need to create stuff, in wood, in metal, sewing fabrics, or whatever, it's a way of expression.

This little strange feeling that we already knew each other before we met...

Music, Movies, and Books

The XX, Cocorosie, Caribou, Ratatat, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Sofiane Pamart, Cat Power, Kavinsky, Nina simone, Noir Desir, Brav, Furax... I really love music and i can appreciate things in almost every style, I mean it.
Boris Vian, Milan Kundera, Jacques Prévert and Alain Damasio are part of my favorites writers.
About films let's say i'm a junky, i watch a lot of movies, and not only good ones ;)
But if i had to choose a few : Harold and Maud, Fight Club, Prisoners, Take Shelter, True Detective season 1
