  • Description

    Hello , I'm Olivier , a 41 years old french single man
    I worked as a firefighter in South of France during 18 years.
    Then I lived 2 years in Reunion Island , closed to South Africa and one year in a Caribbean Island called Martinique . In those islands I dealt with a board games club ,so now even travelling I carry some of them with me :)
    Now I rent my house to discover the world while taking the opportunity of experiencing other cultures and meeting people.
    I travelled during 2 years through South America and some months through Canada
    I'm interested by any cooperative and/or adventurous experiences :)

  • More details about your skills

    As a firefighter in addition working in ambulance and fire truck , my specialisation was coastguarding.
    I speak intermediate spanish ,English and portuguese and I'm learning italian
    My mother tongue is french
    I renovated an old village house during 5 years ( a long time because I worked in the same time ):
    first year working together with a builder destroying walls and building others, erasing the roof to create a rooftop , then the 4 other years I worked to make the isolation of the house , decorating , making some specific projects… One of them was to build a mass cheminey of 8 tonnes weight which heats all the house .
    I'm very creative and happy to have realized my ideas in the house while building a cooperative team for some of them. For instance the spirit of the first floor is Africa ( I add some pictures)
    That was an amazing aventure which gave me more confident with myself and allowed me then to live abroad and to over pass the fronteer of the language...
    I like to go to the market or take care of a vegetable garden in order to cook with fresh products, that was the kind of like I lived in Reunion Island
    I'm a worker and I like to play :)
