About Me


Be as kind with travellers here, as people have been with us during our journey


Born and grew up in Les Loges en Josas (78)
But now I enjoy living in Britanny, and especially in this little region called le Tregor, with lots of cool people around.
Before settling here, I started traveling as a volunteer for relief or developement associations, in Madagascar, in Peru, then in Liberia. I also travelled on a container ship between Portugal and Guinea for a scientific mission (oceanographic measurements).
In 2011, I cycled on the silk road during one year with Elise.
Now I work in an association to promote energy savings in our region.

Grew up in Mantallot at my parents'farm, in the Tregor. I worked during 3 years in a rural development association, but now I'm thinking about beeing a farmer too,because I'm fond of cooking, of animals, and of life in the country side !


The cheapest and less polluant energy is the one you do not consume.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In both hosting and being hosted.


Lots of exchanges in both hosting and being hosted, in France and elsewhere around the world...
We have been hosting a lot of people in our house in Britanny, but in the coming months we will rather be couch surfers on other people's couches !


Riding our bikes on the Silk Way !!... but as well to the rail station close to our home, listening and singing music, reading books, climbing mountains, traveling (for sure), and discovering the people around us
