About Me


Meet new people, improve my English, help, being helped...


I like meeting new people and learning new things, this is how I try to make life spicy. But also running, crossfit, mountain biking and back-country skiing.
All our favorite activities depend a lot on weather and season, but I think we can define ourselves quite well by the things we do for fun. I'm also interested in cooking and all sorts of handcrafts...
At the moment I'm definitely a crossfit buff, because it's fun and addictive !


Atheist, Respecful, open minded (I hope) and trying to be happy enough to make people around me happy enough

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I do try keep to the dogs off the couch, and I try to help people the way they want to be helped.


I started hosting, and realised it changed my life even without traveling. Great encounters too and I had to admit the world is FULL of fantastic people to meet.


I'm attracted by passionate people whatever their passion is. I love learning news things, new activities : I love being a beginner in any field.
