About Me


Iam begining my year as a student and I still need to find the perfect place I would work in. That the reason why I' on the road again. I want to discover sweden in that purpose. Do you guys need a french osteopath? I am coming to check this out.


Hi everybody .I'm a 30 years old student in Osteopathy ( 5th and last year ).
I started by studying philosophy at the university. It took me a year to realise I would spend my life in a library if I continued this way.
So I took a flight for damascus, syria to learn how to write from the right to the left. Cost me 2 years of a great life and I begun to teach french to make a living. I realised I loved this job.
Then I went easter and I landed in guangzhou, south china: 2 years filled with martial art, learning chinese massage and party.
At that time I was a french teacher and a chinese masseur. I was 25 five so I decided it was time to start something serious.
I took my bag back to france where I've been studying osteopathy for four years now.

I didn't know how to describe myself, that's why I wrote about what I did and do. Hope it's enough for you to get a picture.


Give it a try

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just applied and I hope this is the beginning of something great. I discovered it with a friend who used to host in marseille.


Iam a rooky. No experience on the website. But I traveled and I welcome travelers when the opportunity appears.


I enjoy doing sports in the nature around Marseille such as climbing, swimming and even surfboarding ( yes it is in deed possible). Of course I love travelling. I miss it since I live in Marseille for 4 years without the possibility to take a flight as often as I would like to. I come from Britanny ( north west of france) so as a Celtic I enjoy a beer from time to time. Do not hesitate to get in touch with me . It would be a pleasure as well to advice you about places to go ( or not to go) in marseille.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like reading russian classical books and american authors. Read most of the beat generation.
Music depends of the mood Iam in: hip hop to go running, pop music and spanish guitar to relax.
I like asian movies, corean and japanese especialy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

After 2 years in south china, I went back to europe by the transibérien. A good way to "feel" the geography.

Teach, Learn, Share

well I can teach french and chinese massage. I would learn other languages.
