Join Couchsurfing to see Romain’s full profile. It’s free!
(do not copy paste it wouldn't work, re-type it yourself)
I realised recently that Couchsurfing doesn't allow people to write freely to anybody anymore... So to avoid this issue write me directly on my email address. If you want to surf my couch please copy a link to your profile in your message then I can check your profile and references before accepting. If you just want to meet up we do not need such formalities.
Travelling the World
Teaching Breton to the World
Getting more stable
I'm an European, from Breton origin, born in Picardy, raised in Normandy, educated in Limousin, graduated in Alsace, i then worked and lived in Romania, Canada, Netherlands, Paris and in the UK. (And that is the short version)
I love to visit my dear Europe loving our diversity of cultures, architectures, food, languages etc. I'm from the West coast but I also love Central Europe and try to explore more and more of Eastern Europe now.
I love hiking, walking hours, till being no more able to walk !
I don't drink alcohol, please respect it. I don't smoke and cannot even bear the smoke. I can survive with water without eating during several days. So don't worry about food for me if you host me :) But still happy with good food when available!
I am the contrary of vegetarian, I need meat!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I am an old fashion couchsurfer, a bit grumpy about what the website became over the last years ...
I couchsurfed and hosted a lot, hosted, participated in hundreds of events and organised a good half hundred too :) I think i explored most of possibilities of couchsurfing. Still not tired of it. Only tired of their buggy app, buggy website and their stupid policy that wants to attract bad people to the website and make money on the back of the community...
I read your messages and answers them on time. So give a try !
When I surf :
1) I'm okay with sleeping on the floor, I'm mainly looking for a "safe" place to have my night more than a comfortable bed.
2) I dislike when my host has to spend money for me, so don't be astonished if you propose me some food/ticket/others and i refuse, it's kind but i feel strange.
Languages, history, hiking, (geo)politics, Europe, cultures. If you start them, you won't stop me, don't say you didn't know!
Music, Movies, and Books
Celtic Music, or any other European music in all languages
Books : I love those teaching me new things, and don't read much novels. I like to do two things at the same time so i usually only read in the language i want to practice.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Going to germany or Switzerland (from France) or to Hungary (from Slovakia) on foot.
Hiking 40km without eating anything for 2 days.
Having been in UK, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland and France in just 24h.
Travelling in 20 countries in a year.
Lived a hurricane in Indian ocean hmmm and a 8 months Winter in Canada.

Became a responsible of Russian community of Montreal after just 6 months there.
Survived the 2012 Montreal Earthquake
Lost my passport in Heathrow ...
Ate crocodile, shark, antilop and "wild dog" (please don't hate me for that).
I animated a show on the radio
I forgot half of the things i do cause exceptionnal stuffs are a routine.
Teach, Learn, Share
I like languages, I speak European, it is quite complicated as it has many dialects, teach me yours and I could teach you mine.
I like cooking so we can also cook together if you surf my couch.
And I always hungry of knowledge.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can offer to my guest a place to stay in a bed in the guest room, a tour of the city or further around if I'm not busy.
