Bonjour ! Hello! ¡Hola! Olá! Ciao! Hallo! привет ("privyet"), こんにちは ("konnichiwa")! ツ
I am David, born French, with half my blood Portuguese, but now considered a World Citizen, since I started, mid-2008, a project called "Around the World in 80 months and 10 languages".
I arrived in Tokyo mid-October, and Japan is now the 12th country where I have been living (living for me is with a minimum of 3 months), after France (by Lille & Aix-en-Provence), U.S.A. (Huntington Beach, California), Spain (Barcelona), Mexico (D.F.), Argentina (Buenos Aires), Portugal (Lisbon), Italy (Florence & Rome), Austria (Vienna), Germany (Berlin), Ukraine (Kiev) & Russia (Moscow & St Petersburg)... in the last 5 years!
I am here on a working-holiday visa, working as a host for Airbnb, and as well from time to time as a (mainly background) actor.
After 3 weeks searching, I finally found a wonderful location to live in... but couldn't decide between a studio-flat and an apartment with 2 bedrooms, 4 floors above... I decided to take both, and share my luck with people here, with YOU! ‿
This is my first time hosting through Airbnb, but I've had some 130+ guests (in 11 countries) through the most famous hospitality exchange website (which I cannot mention here not to be censored :p), so know how to take care of my guests... but as well respect privacy... basically, to adapt ;-)
As well I've stayed with almost 250 locals, in dozens of countries (traveled to 40+ countries), and hitchhiked dozens of thousands of kilometers, so that helps me understanding the needs of a tourist/traveler.
My life and travels around the world also mean that if you want to know something about the worldS around you, I guess I can help you ;-)
And if you want somebody to help you adapting to Japanese culture, as I've recently faced cultural differences, I would be happy to share my knowledge too, and introduce you to my Japanese friends if you want.
Looking forward to making your stay in Tokyo, Japan, a memorable one. And trust me, this country is totally worth coming to!
