About Me

**********
JANUARY TO JUNE 2017 - TRAVELLING IN AFRICA
HOSTING IN PARIS WILL RESUME IN JULY 2017
HAPPY TRAVELS :)
**********

///
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 4 years I have been exploring the most DODGY places of Africa.

I traveled to 134 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... BUT you will most certainly end-up writing a POSITIVE one because it's just the way it works... #RIDICULOUS

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I don't like to pay for accommodation. In 2012, I traveled more than a year without spending a single cent for that.

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 once you arrived.

Interests

Catacombs, Nicolas Sarkozy, India, Trekking, Iran, Camping, Hitchhiking, Geopolitics, WWII, Communism, Books, Mountains, Travels, Cold War, Israel, Airlines, Mc Donald's, Africa...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- got into tribal zones in Pakistan and tried an AK-47 at the Afghan border
- 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 & 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 & Army
- 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 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 ?"
