About Me


I am NOT fun. I am NOT cool. I am NOT open-minded #Disclaimer

I lived 5 years in Latin America, hitchhiked in Asia during 3 years and for the past 4 years I have been exploring the most DODGY places of Africa.

I have been to 128 countries. I ate the dirt of the road so many times that I probably lost some of the reality of SOCIETY.

At the moment I live between France and Africa (where I work). I LOVE Paris and every time I come back here I feel like I am in HEAVEN.

I am WEIRD and you will likely want to leave me a NEGATIVE reference.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CouchSurfing & Camping are MY way of travelling. I traveled over a year without spending a single cent for accommodation.

If you are broke, or simply miserly, and are just looking for FREE accommodation, that's fine, but be honest in your request, I will still host you but I will not USELESSLY try to talk to you.

What I Can Share with Hosts

- I had to spend the night outside in Saigon because my host drank too much and forgot about me
- 2 CouchSurfers in Sultanate of Oman left me in the middle of a trek because I was "too rude"
- 2 female CouchSurfers offered me a space on their bed in Saigon because my host drank too much
- a host in Iran told me "Do me a favor, take a shower"
- my host in Saigon asked me on the third night "Why are you cold and distant with me ?"
