About Me


I'm a father, my son (born 2012) is both french and german.


I have a baby born on july 14th, 2012. He is now living in north Germany (Pellwrom island, north sea), so I'm sometimes off my location to visit him and his mum.

I leave France in february 2008. In june 2010 I have travelled in 35+ countries and 60 000 km without flying. I get a lot of stories to share : europe,Middle-east, Africa...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can show you a diaporama of my last travel, from 5 minutes to 2 hours.
I have also a 36 min movie of my last travel, but only in french.
I can give basic advice how to organise a long trip or tips for ecological daily-life.


I was host by Mihail in Sofia, and met other CS member, so i decided to join the network. Quit difficult to understand how the website is organise. maybe i'm just messy (I read this now, but it's write in 2008 when I join CS !)

I spent 5 days in Roma in february 2008 by travelling with students of architecture. We were 9 camping cars driving around roma to meet gypsies peoples to learn about their travel and life in italy. we eat and live with them during this time, wich was a really good experience.
I travell back from Tema, Ghana, to Amsterdam, nederland, by cargo ship during 10 days :)
