About Me

Welcome to Marseille!!
• I like to spend time with my guests, so I prefer to host during weekend because on other days I should go to work.
Exception in may, on wednesdays, after the weekly picnic on the beach I can host one night.
• In your request tell me why I should host you and why you choose me as your host, what could be of great experience with our personalities.
• If you didn't read my profile before sending me a request, I'm sorry for you : I won't host you.
• Only send a couchrequest if you have something to share with your host of course ;) (I don't provide food except breakfast).
I only consider personal and personalized request, not copy-paste messages.

About me :
I'm Daniel and as I like people, I want to know and share new cultures, new customs ... and good times !
As I'm openminded, talktative and very curious, everyone is welcome home : straight, gay, LBGT...
The world is too small for those who have eager feed. Are you curious too?
I'm busy during weekday but if you'll be in Marseille in may on Wednesday I'll be happy to go with your to the CS weekly meeting on the beach.

Bienvenue à Marseille !
Je m'appelle Daniel, j'aime les gens, connaître de nouvelles cultures, différents modes de vie, échanger ... de de bons moments !
Je suis curieux alors tout le monde est le bienvenu chez moi selon mes disponibilités.
Je suis un "mangeur d'humanité" : c'est ce que dit mon meilleur Ami ... à méditer et à vérifier.

J'aime passer du temps avec mes invités en fin de semaine parce que les autres jours je suis occupé avec mon travail, mais si tu es à Marseille en mai le mercredi je serai ravi d'aller ensemble au rendez-vous CS le soir à la plage.

Bienvenido en Marsella!
Me llamo Daniel y me gusta la gente, quiero conocer y compartir nuevas culturas, nuevas costumbres ... ¡ y buenos momentos!
Como tengo la mente abierta, hablador y muy curioso, todo el mundo es bienvenido en mi casa.
El mundo es demasiado pequeño para aquellos que tienen ansiosa alimentación. ¿Eres curioso también?
PREFIERO TENER INVITADOS EN CASA LOS FINES DE SEMANA para compartir momentos juntos y porque debería ir a trabajar en otros días, pero si estarás en Marsella en mayo el miércoles, estaré encantado de ir juntos a la reunión semanal de CS en la playa.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Since 14th of july, 2020 I'm City Ambassador of Marseilles, so I'm glad helping to build a local organisational structure for Couchsurfing.

I was in the New Member Welcome group,
and I was one of the contributors for the Couchsurfing Wiki Page of Marseilles.

I like to give tips and advice to new members, and I´m trying to go to every meeting I can, this has became a part of my life! (I´m always sleepy at work though ;P

Music, Movies, and Books

♫♫For Music a little bit of all but not too much of one.♫♫
My preference go to the Beatles and electronic music like Kraftwerk and all music it's played on di.fm

Same about movies, a bit of every kind but I prefer Sci-fi as Seven sisters, Inception, Time out, Her, Transperceneige, Squid Game, Fargo...
Actually I follow : American Horror Story, Mr Robot, Wild World, Stranger things...

I don't like so much musical comedy.

Books are the ennemies of low cost airlines, too heavy and too voluminous! :s
Stop killing the trees : use e-book ;o)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was alone in Greece on the Meteores... all was surreal... a strange sensation...
To see the sunrise on Moas statues in Easter island...
To see a big 🌈 rainbow in Iguazú waterfalls in Argentina...

Teach, Learn, Share

To share my way of thinking.
Me gustaria recibir gente que hable español para practicarlo mejor.

En 2008 fue un mes en Argentina - Uruguay!!
Y despues en Mexico, Guatemala, Republica Dominicana (mayo 2018), Chile, isla de Pascua y Bolivia (mayo 2019) y Costa Rica (mayo 2021)!!
