About Me

CURRENT MISSION

''Read more, learn more, change the globe''

ABOUT ME

Whenever I put on my backpack, the feeling of freedom and adventure immediately starts to circulate in my blood. At the speed of growth in globalization and human being's excessive consumption, I just want to see as mush as possible of the remaining background of human civilization before it's too late...

Traveling made me realize how large our mother earth is and how tiny is the gap between ppl from different nationalities/communities.

Little tolerance towards food wasting. I eat whatever I get/order/make, as long as it doesn't harm my health. Just bear in mind that, though it's a substantial need, food is still a luxury in some places.

PHILOSOPHY

"Do not wait until tomorrow for things you can accomplish today." - YQ

"Instead of telling others what you consider wrong, show them what is right! If you cannot do any better, swallow the displeasure and the empty pride." -YQ

"Les jours sont peut-etre egaux pour une horloge, mais pas pour un homme!" - Marcel Proust

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

By meeting ppl via CS. Let's build together this "international" family.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My "CS experience" has begun through my international connections, ppl I've met during sport events, run into by chance. I've decided to pay them a visit since it was also on my way to where I was going (mostly in the developing countries). Traveling gave me the opportunity to see the reality through my eyes, to integrate myself in different social environmental context.

Interests

Outdoor activities, Parkour, Bouldering, Martial Arts, American Football, Volleyball, Dragonboat; Photography; Traveling, hiking, seeking for the beauty of the nature!

In a long term perspective, I'm willing to contribute and devote in a way to the sustainability and the preservation of the nature and the biodiversity of our common home, as well as to cut down the disparities within our huge family. We've enough jeopardized the beauty of our planet on which we live, it's never "too" late to remedy the wrongdoings of human beings and to mitigate the damages to our environment, other species and our future generations.
