About Me

I am NOT fun. I am NOT easy-going. I am NOT open-minded #Disclaimer

I lived 5 years in Latin America, hitchhiked in Asia during 3 years and for the past 8 years I have been exploring the most DODGY places of Africa.

I traveled to 143 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. I LOVE Paris and every time I come back 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

I simply don't like paying for accommodation !

If you are broke, or miserly or whatever, and are only looking for FREE accommodation, that's ok, but YOU NEED to advise beforehand so I will not USELESSLY try to talk to you.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- spent 2 weeks in Tibet without Permit and hitchhiked on the Friendship Highway to Kathmandu
- sneaked a few hours into the Kingdom of Bhutan before being caught and deported
- witnessed a sky burial in the mountains of Western Sichuan (China)
- standed less than 1m from a river of lava in Guatemala
- hiked 2 weeks in Mongolia with map and compass and relied on the hospitality of the nomads
- travelled to Guinea during Ebola outbreak, and hazmats were at my house when I came back to France
- walked alone into the ghost town of Agdam, a no man's land guarded by soldiers and snakes, in the enigmatic Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh
- crossed the officialy closed border between Cote d'Ivoire and Liberia by bribing Police and Army
- pretended I was Muslim and praying so I could sleep for free in mosques in Sudan and Somalia
- entered Nigeria and Chad on falsified visas
- was researched (and found) by the French Embassy in Kabul after drinking tea with US army while travelling across Afghanistan hitch-hiking

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 Oman turned back and left me alone in the middle of a trek because I was "too rude"
- 2 girls 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 ?"
