About Me

CURRENT MISSION

It is not the length of a life which is important, it's its intensity

ABOUT ME

Now back home in Luxembourg after 4 years in Asia-Pacific. Happy to enjoy old Europe, and thinking to possibly expat again in some years to... ??? happy to hear your opinion and own life experience!

PHILOSOPHY

My motto: Don t regret anything for the past, enjoy the present, prepare the future.

Better die with defeats than dreams you never tried to reach // who never tries has already lost.

Never believe you are more clever than the one in front of you

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Love both to organise and participate, discover new people and mindsets, so much to learn everywhere and from everyone

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Till now very nice

Interests

Everything + what I did already, so Skiing, Photograph, Diving, Parachute, Soccer, Traveling, Arts (ceramics, drawing), Politics, Hockey, table tennis, Tennis, fishing...

Music, Movies & Books

Music: Spanish and French mostly, sorry.

Books: No idea of the English title. Ken Follet impresses me how he thoroughly looks for documentation about his subjects. If not him, many others. But I will read more when retired.

Movies: Dance with the wolfs, Rain Man,...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Crossing France on bycicle in 2 weeks, the same with Quebec, many jokes, a lot of travels, intensive party experience (now a bit quieter), living in several different cities and countries already, work experience in Africa, Cuba, Costa Rica, Asia-Pacific, formations in Moscow, Tunesia, Poland... long experience in latino, Australia and east European matters... parachuting without really understanding much of how it fonctions... already active from in hippie movements to diplomacy, in the head of a multinational to NGO works or anarchistic views...
