About Me

I am what I like, take a look further down into the interest section

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

hosting these days, travelling in a near future, hopefully


I enjoy partying, writing, hiking, meeting people for poetry readings...

I often go to festoù noz (breton dance sessions), occasionnaly I do some singing, kan ha diskan. It's a specific type, something like "sing and dance along" in breton or in french.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

backpacking on the greyhound from Boston to San Francisco in my mid-twenties, Jack Kerouac way...

Teach, Learn, Share

everyone has a story to tell, I'm ready to listen and entertain back with a few interesting bits and pieces.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I do guided tours in Brest, on a non-professional basis, I often guide people off the beaten track including in well-hidden tunnels, loads of them round the corner. The good thing is that I've got plenty of time to enjoy this life of ours.

I usually go hiking for a short while along the coastline with guests who are happy with the idea. One thing we can do is exploring the surrounding area close to my place, especially on a historical viewpoint (WW2) or industrial (old brewery, mill industry etc...)

If you like going out to pubs, I can keep you in good company and perhaps you'll enjoy hanging out with my friends, they're a friednly open-hearted bunch, they won't byte you ;)

I can give you the basics in breton, which might chance to help you round in the country when adressing elderlies although they're alright at french of course.
