About Me

Fairly new to Bristol. I share a flat with one friendly housemate.

I travelled around 87,000km across 25 countries for 25 months. This has been probably the biggest achievement of my life. I have no regrets and would do it again and again. I learnt so much and saw a world with lots of hope.

I consider myself easy going, opend-minded and respectful!! I am already thankful to anyone who accepts to open his/her doors to me. Since CS is all about exchange, I will do my best to share my travel experiences and what I know about french culture, mainly through some food as I like to cook.

Life is to short. I wanna get the most of it!!
I am dreaming of a better life in a better world.
Do not talk about things you do not know!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CS is for me one of the best way to get a real inside of the culture of the place you visit. It really enhances your travel experience because you take time to meet people proud of their culture and country. What a better advocate?
It is also a very good way to meet open-minded and cultivated persons.
I do not consider myself as a guest when I surf because I like to take part of the usual daily tasks. I am already thankful to my host for his time and generosity, I do not need more!


Do I need to mention "travelling"?

EAT and COOK!!! - I eat everything and like to cook some french foods to anyone who wanna taste some.

Ecology - green minded, I wanna spread my virus to everyone for a better world!

Politics - I know very little about politics and do not want to argue about any kind of preferences. I just wanna learn any point of view and increase my knowledge because it is very powerful tool to change the world.

Sport - I like football very much!! Long life Arsenal!!;)
