About Me

CURRENT MISSION:

RAISE MY CHILDREN & KEEP ON TRAVELING!

ABOUT ME:

"Tireless traveler" Lucky husband of Vladi, a beautiful & spicy bulgarian woman! Happy father of 3 little boys: Jean, Louis & Pierre!

A few years ago, we decided to travel around the world. We saved money for a long time, sold or gave absolutely all our belongings, left our flat, resigned from our jobs and were away for 500 days of adventures from november 2008 to march 2010...

Now we're back in Europe, currently living in France. Try your luck and ask to spend some nights at home!

PHILOSOPHY:

"la vraie richesse s'obtient en voyageant" = travels are the only way to reach true wealth
