About Me


To be aware of differences and accept them..


My travel experience is not so much, but I already understood that it's not the way of my life to spend holidays in many star beach hotels. You explore my country, and me yours. This is what we need..


My current philosophy is trying to avoid the question, "why do I live my life". That's because, how much I want to escape from the system, I find myself so much deep inside. Maybe one day I see a dream and change my way.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted and met a lot of people. It's way more than I surfed at people's place.


Photography, music, history, politics, environment..

And I love farming work!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've a lot of stories to tell. All of them are quite interesting for me but I'm sure they also may be boring for some people. One man's story is another man's cliché, one man's usual is another man's casual!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm learning French and it'd be nice to host francophone people for me to make some practice. If I'm in the mood, I can teach even how to make a great traditional dish.
