About Me

I'm a regular guy living a nomadic life around the world. I like to talk about cinema, photography and travels.
You can see what I do there: www.vincentgaliano.com
And here is my french travel blog: www.nomadephoto.fr
I will soon begin a youtube channel in english, Nomade Video.

I'm vegan and it's an important part of my life.

I travel mostly WITHOUT MONEY unless I find work to do.

I'm polically left-wing but don't let politics guide my life too much. I am totally against beliefs and organized religion (and most of all against theism). I have always tried to learn from everything. I like spirituality without beliefs.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

As I love travelling for many months around the world, I like meeting new people from various countries, talking about everything. So that's what couchsurfing can offer to me when I have to stay in Paris for a long time.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have a pretty good collection of films (more than 400 dvds and 100 blu-rays) so it's hard to just give names.

I listen to classical, opera, blues, jazz and rock (mostly old stuffs) music. Bands like The Doors, Nirvana, Radiohead, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Creedence Clearwater Revival. I like Bob Dylan, Otis Redding, Sonny Boy Williamson, Sixty Rodriguez.
I love silence a lot, too.

I read a lot, my favorite writers are Jack Kerouac, Bret Easton Ellis, Stephen King, Charles Bukowski, Haruki Murakami, Chuck Palahniuk. I like poetry, especially Rimbaud and Baudelaire. Comic-books from Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Dave McKean, Nicolas de Crecy, Chris Ware.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well, I just left everything (job, flat) to live a nomadic life. And I left without real money (a few hundreds euros).
I did the Annapurna trek in 2007...Just amazing!
And I've been doing scuba-diving, since February 2010. I saw amazing creatures in Asia, like giant manta rays.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can teach cinema, video (shooting and editing), photography. I know how to juggle.
I know Paris quite well...And can teach a few vegan recipes!!!

I'd like to be better in foreign langages, yoga, meditation, longboarding, ukulele and harmonica.

I can share ideas and time.
