New life in Britain
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 simple version)
I love to visit my dear Europe loving our diversity of cultures, architectures, food, languages etc. I'm from the West but love the Central Europe and have still to discover more about the Eastern one.
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 :)
Moreover I am the contrary of vegetarian because i dislike most of vegetables. (I believe in Potatoes ;) )
Life without traveling is like being in jail, I know some people who never left their cities, omg, what a hell ! I am a kind of nomad, I live between 2 and 5 years somewhere and then move, not even speaking about holidays ! I like sport but not competition, so okay for a tennis, for a walk, for swimming but I don't care of who will win. I'm peaceful and careful.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I couchsurfed a lot, hosted a bit less, participated in a lot lot of events and organised a good half hundred too :) I think i explored most of possibilities of couchsurfing. Now i am mainly back to "Host" function :)
A friend told me about this website during kayaking and when I had to go on holidays without my parents (without parents = without money, as a student) it became an evidence. Then i got used to it, and recently i was refusing a free empty appartment just because i preffer to meet couchsurfers :D
My philosophy about couchsurfing is like "you have a couch/bed/floor you don't use, so allow somebody else to enjoy it, you won't loose anything and you will give to somebody" which means :
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. I studied chemistry but I'm not only interested by Sciences And I'm not of those with who you can talk about music movie or literature during hours, I like some but it's not my core subjects.
Music, Movies, and Books
Celtic Music, or any other European music in all languages (Russian mainly), English is not for me number one in my play-list :D
Books : I love those teaching me 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.
Movies : I like Scifi or Historical movies mainly. Not really American comedies.
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.
Lived a hurricane in Indian ocean hmmm and a 8 months Winter in Canada.
I have seen the UK under a blue sky !
Became a responsible of Russian community of Montreal after just 6 months there.
Maybe other amazing things but my memory is not so great. I will think about having a less active life...
Teach, Learn, Share
I like languages, I can say some easy words of greetings in almost all languages of Europe :D otherwise I'm good in hiking, and traveling if you need advises in these subjects !
If you surf my couch, you can get a breton lesson :]
