Single expatriate in Paris area for work, I spend there eight months a year, but I come back near Toulouse for each holidays.
My life is a simple one. In general, I just use what I think necessary. I am easily happy. I can as well live "into the wild" or spend hours in front of my computer.
Even if english language knoledge is very practicle for foreign travels, I don't like the imperialism of american language, and it's the reason why I used online translators to make one of my website in 8 different languages and also why now I contribute to the free software for automatic translation Apertium.

- Please bring:
You, your sleeping bag if you wish, but it is not essential.
- I can offer my guests:
I have boxes of an excellent cassoulet that I bring from the Toulouse region and also some Floc de gascogne (a little like pineau (more known in France), but produced in the south west).
- I can offer my hosts:
Three times, I brought some of this cassoulet (a box enough big for a 3 persons meal), and one time also Floc, but my hosts were not interested, and I brought that back to home. My wish to share the cassoulet box was even an additional point of discord during a weekend at a CS ambassador's which was badly held.
So, if you wish I bring this kind of product, ask it explicitly.

Next time out of Arpajon :
- 27 april -> 11 may 2013
- 31 may -> 3 june 2013
and I will live this part of the country at end of june or beginning of july.
I lived 12 years in a small apartment for myself with big problems of storage (even if the welcoming of my first traveler was a good reason to improve it). I succeeded to rent the upstairs apartment (bigger) but sorting things in disorder will take me months.
To sleep, the best will be in the same bedroom as me on another mattress, except if you prefer to share my single bed. The advantage is we will not have to lie down at the same time. Otherwise, there is the living room with the computer, but I may use it up to 1 H in the morning and it is very well lit.
I sleep naked. You, can do as you want.
When it's warm enough for it to be pleasant (at least 23 ° C, which occurs from May to September), I also like being naked in my apartment. If you like it too, enjoy it. In addition, the risk of being seen from the outside is limited.
For me, nudity is not sexual.
I leave the Paris region at each school holiday (C zone) to the south of France. In particular, I am not in this region during the months of July-August.
During my vacations, I have no internet access (or very few during summer vacations).

The town is accessible by RER C (direction Dourdan from Paris). There are two RER per hour in each direction most of the time in the day. Walking to the station takes 10 minutes.
