About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Try to grow my hair :-)

ABOUT ME

I like hiking and climbing in the mountains. I like go camping and bivouac every where, on the beach, on the mountains, on the summits and on the snow :) I am a member of a bicycle and MTB LGBT Club (derailleurs.org).
I update regularly my facebook (Yann Fleïtour). There are a lot of photos: summits in the Pyrenees, Parties in my house in Bordeaux and on the Atlantic beach, photos taken in many cities.
I travel a lot for my job and also for my pleasure :).

PHILOSOPHY

Run! Run! Live is too short to sleep :D

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like welcome people in Bordeaux and show the city where I've been living for 30 years...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I host 35 couchsurfers. All were very nice people! It's so great.
At this time, I have been hosted only few times, they were fantastic experience in San Francisco (April 2019), Miami, NYC :)

Interests

Sports: Hiking, kayaking, Mountains, Alpinism, Backcountry Ski, Climbing, Swimming

- Decorate my house and organise parties
- Take a lot of photos in large cities (New York, Paris, London, Lisbon, Bruxels, Marseille, Berlin, Amsterdam, Athens,Tokyo, New Delhi, ..., Bordeaux!).

Where I can write something about by disinterests? Here perhaps! I don't have a TV. I never had a TV also in my parent's house when I was young. I HATE TV! I go very often to hotels for my job, and I never turn on the TV! After all that... I am openminded :) :) :)
uhh... I HATE football too :)
