About Me


Can't figure it out...




Generate memories (good or bad). I prefer having regrets for something I've done to having remorse about something I have never tried.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I discovered couchsurfing as I was travelling around mediterranean countries for one year. I left France in September 2007 with three of my friends, starting from Spain to North Africa... We did a one month long volunteer job in Palestine. Our objective during this trip was to know more about how olive oil production rules people, environment, fair trade... The occasion for us to discover wonderful countries, share with a bunch of people we met along our way.
