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, before becoming parents, 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 (november 2008 - march 2010).

Back in Europe, we are 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 become truly rich
