About Me

Disclaimer: I am fully vaccinated and proud to be!


Travel longer and slower that I ever did.


I love concerts, movies, novels, strong beer, sport... I quit my job a few months ago to take a step back from my life, assess where I'm at and what I want to do next. I figured that a good way to figure that out is to travel in a way that allows me to meet local people and travelers without pressure of time or of general norms. I try to avoid touristic places, I felt that I had the most fulfilling encounters when going out of the beaten paths.
I'm an introvert, I need to be alone often but I'm almost never unfriendly. The most enriching part of travelling is the encounters, so I'm always willing to meet people who see relationships the way I do: based on empathy, listening, sharing, acceptance, benevolence...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To have interesting encounters and experiences in cities I don't know.

Music, Movies, and Books

Some of my favorite movies: Exxotica of Atom Egoyan, Un conte de Noël of Arnaud Desplechin, L'Inconnu du lac of Alain Guiraudié, Moonlight... I had some of the most intense experiences in movie theaters, when I love a movie it is a very memorable experience for me.
I also enjoy mainstream action and comedy films, for example I am addicted to MCU movies.

I listen a lot of Rock, Rap & RnB and some other stuff. My favorite thing is going to concerts, I can pretty much have a great time listening to any type of live music: latin music, jazz, pop, punk...

I read as much as I can, mostly novels but also some history and social sciences books. My favorite novels: A fan's note of F Exley, Les Valeureux of A Cohen, Neige of O Pamuk and Sometimes a great notion of K Kesey.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I couldn't call it an extraordinary adventure, but I had some of the most special moments in my life when Wwoofing: guiding donkeys in Auvergne, swiming in the lake after the sauna in Sweden...

Teach, Learn, Share

Outside of sharing life experiences and personal views, I can teach about french labour law!
