About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discover the world and contribue trough my profession to the conservation of our environment

ABOUT ME

I am open, respectful and always motivated to discover new things and other cultures. Integrating myself quite well in new groups, I think CS can help me to discover local cultures when travelling around the world !

PHILOSOPHY

I think life is here to do something of it. Use the short time you have on this planet to bring something to improve the situation and at the same time try to see and discover as much as possible of it !

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I think one of the most beautiful thing I have done in my life is a 2 months cycle trip in the Indian Himalayas. Started from Manali up to Srinagar (Kashmir), we cycled with a friend up to more than 5300 meters altitude, have seen some of the highest mountains in the world and met wonderful people. Travelling with a cycle is certainly the best way to discover the world : much faster than by walk but slow enough to feel, smell, see and appreciate ! (see my website)

Teach, Learn, Share

I like this concept ! Sharing is for me something very important. We can discuss environmental issues (I'm studying this), cycle trips (North India and East Europe) or thousand of other things...
On the other side, during the 3 coming months, I will be in Chile and one of my goals there is to learn and practice Spanish. Maybe you can help me in that...

Countries I’ve Visited

Brazil, Canada, Croatia, France, India, Jordan, Madagascar, Russian Federation, Singapore, Slovenia, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States
