à la maison
Hey ! I am Florent, a French student wanting to take a break from school (1st year in a Masters in Environment) and the exhausting lifestyle that comes with it. My goal is to try to live as simply as possible outdoors. It is no longer possible for me to stay 8 hours a day in my room, on my computer and put aside what I love above all (trekking, canoeing, fishing, hiking with my dog, cultivating the vegetable garden, crafting things with my own hands (…)) !
I love travelling and its form of minimalism since my first trek (17 years old). The idea that my whole life can fit in a backpack encourages me to leave and put aside my everyday comfort.
But despite my love for adventurous travel, self-sufficiency is a concept that interests me more and more. I like to believe that it is possible to do a lot with a little and strive for the most respectful way of consuming possible.
Sharing is also a fundamental value for me. I like to learn from others (experiences, opinions, knowledge, language ...) and from myself and to give back. My many experiences in summer camps during my childhood allowed me to discover community life, that I find very stimulating !
Recently, I discovered a taste for manual work and crafting. My main occupation is oriented towards outdoor work. Unfortunately, not having hectares of land at my disposal, I mainly maintain the family garden.
These include to maintain and improve the vegetable garden from year to year (manufacture of crop containers, compost and greenhouse, seedling management, mulching, etc.).
I also enjoy taking care of the day-to-day tasks necessary to the garden such as fencing, installing a path or a flower bed, installing a rainwater collection system, repainting a terrace, setting up an ornamental pond ...
I have no specific professional formation in these fields but the desire to learn by doing the best I can.
My motto: do the best I can with what I have !
Handcrafts inspire me and I would like to familiarize myself with woodwork (cabinetmaking, carpentry), welding, plumbing, electricity, mechanics ... In short, I want to become resourceful !
I primarily enjoy working outdoors, regardless of the weather. I have always been in good physical shape (football, boxing, swimming, trekking) and I hope to stay that way if possible !
I have always had pets, including a reptile (Pogona), fish (garden pond) and two huskies. I also took care of injured birds (pigeons, starlings, sparrows, etc.) on several occasions when I had the opportunity. But taking care of farm animals other than chickens and ducks is something I want to try !
I have an academic level in English which is far from satisfying myself, I am once again relying on a field approach to improve myself. But it's not my beginner's level in English that will prevent me from traveling and exploring new lands !
Plus de détails sur les langues qui m'intéressent
I would be delighted to improve my English and learn the language of my host. Nevertheless, I would be equally proud to share my knowledge of French and France if necessary.
Be aware that none of the tasks you might give me, no matter how challenging they are, can compare to the thought of getting up in the morning without even knowing why. I am counting on you and the help I can give you to give sense to my wake up !
