About Me


Grow my garden :)


Discovered this love for organic farming while traveling, and now Im learning and practicing as much as possible in that area and in alternative lifestyles too; In order to create (or find) zen my little peace of land with happy and healthy people around :)

Im a thinker person( too much?) and I spend lots of time trying to understand why I try so hard to understand ^^ and also about the purpose of it all, of life and the rules of the universe;
Im kind of persuaded that we lost lots of knowledge & wisdom thats the ancient one knew and had long time ago, knowledge we are slowly re-discovering... who said we are just part of another cycle?

Everything is possible, only your imagination is your limit
Everything change constantly, the world right now is not the same as when you started reading that sentence...
Everything is link, like the flower of life patern
Always a question of Balance, and the universe makes everything to get back to that state, no matter what
Sharing is Caring, and its what made us human
Know yourself first & how to communicate, that may help
Take nothing too seriously, even those sayings... :)


Think Local & Act Global

Be the change you want to see in the world. Gandhi

Last winter I met my little turkish delight during a rock-climbing trip near Antalya. Our feelings was so strong that we decided to stick together since then (traveling Turkey and central Europe with our tiny van) & recently got maried :)

We moved to Toulouse since end of april: Usually spending the weeks there and weekend at my dads place in Ariege where our big garden is and/or also moving around (so many things to do in midi pyrenees!!): Outside activities, festivals, culture & arts: everyone can find its liking!

At the moment Im looking for a job in an organic shop and Buge is taking french class for now and then will look for teaching english and yoga in Toulouse.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Foreseen where humanity can go ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

"Sharing is Caring"

What I Can Share with Hosts

A confortable guest room upstairs with big bed and lot of space. Since its under the roof it might be hot during summer days, but for nights with the velux open (and a fan if really needed) you should be fine.
Sharing knowledge and experiences, and hopefully lots of fun and laughs.
Foods and drinks of course ;)
