About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Take care of my soul, people and the earth

ABOUT ME

I am found of travelling and meeting new people, sharing idees and fun together... I love adventures, and to discover new places and new cultures. After for two years volonteering in Chad, I decide to travel in Asia, Australia and Europe to learn more about sustaining ways of life, especially how to garden and farm, but also how to built sustaining houses and to produce his own electricity, clothes...
Here is my travel blog: http://thelibertytocreatetomorrow.wordpress.com/

PHILOSOPHY

Each day is a new adventure, full of promices.

There is a reason for every events happening is our life, be aware of their meaning, their teaching...

Traveling is the best way to learn about yourself and life. It is also a way to win at the time lotery, just having the time to be yourself and forget about society and peer pressure !!

To enjoy life stop truggeling with the past and the futur, just enjoy fully the present moment.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I travelled a lot, sharing unforgettable moments with very different people. I also host whenever I can and I participate to many CS events in Paris, and some other cities around the world.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had so many amazing experiences so far !! I am always impressed how well I am welcomed by people who don't know me. Couchsurfing is really giving trust and hope in the whole humanity :) Maybe is the human deeply good, our crazy society is just corrupting him...

Interests

I want to discover the world, learn about other cultures and meet new people. I enjoy simple moments with simple people.
I love talking, cooking, doing all kind of artcraft, massages, mediatation, volley-ball, playing ukulélé (just beginner)...
And of course a deep interest in alternative ways of living: permaculture, eco-construction, organic farming, intentional communities, healthy food...

Music, Movies & Books

I love to read all kinds of books. I usually grab any book around me and it's always an interesting reading.
The power of now - Echkart Tolle

I like movies too, especially the ones which makes you think deeper about things... - La belle verte

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to make an organic garden, cook healthy food (raw, fermented, cheese, bread, vegetarian...), help with eco-construction, give ideas about energy saving and recycling, make a dreamcatcher, wool bracelets and many other kind of handycraft...
I would like to learn more kind of handycraft, meditation, yoga, all king of massages and ways of living...
