Interests

1 - My friends are coming from the world as I am in fact. (Many Roots)

2 - I like travelling short trip or longer, discovering the culture and the atmosphere...as much I can

3 - It's not the place makes the difference...It's really the people that you meet...Every time, I met brasilian people, they remind always this... (smiling, chiling out, singing....)

4 - Belonging to a languages club here or having many friends from worldwide, I've tried to learn some languages but I 'm focusing now in Baltic States Languages, Lithuanian +++, Scandinavian ++ (Swedish cultural center - centre culturel suedois), Russian ++ Interview at the Russian Television (http://www.1tv.ru/news/world/242618) (Russian cultural center), Turkish + (Turkish cultural center - Centre culturel Anatolie), Portugese (Brazilian)++, German

5 - I like going to different social events where I meet new faces, learn new languages and exchange in many mothertongues (English & French)(meet up, polyglot, couch surfing, traveling, learning exchange)

6 - I usually go running quite often in the park nearby where I live in Paris, surfing where I get close to the seashore & ice skating with friends

7 - When time is come, I like go walking/hiking (Past Experience from the Green Ireland)

8 - I used to do Irish Dances (step & set) and I'm now learning latino dances (Salsa) as my collegues at work convince to do that...

9 - As Paris is one of the cities where you can find so many museums...I have high interest in the art during the 16 - 18th century as Lorrain did (Louvres museum) during the Impressionnist time...

My favorite museum here is the Sevres Museum as Ceramique is the art of the combinaison earth (clay), fire and water...

10 - To make it simple, Paris is the place to be (Day or Night time)...Welcome on board :)

Music, Movies & Books

1 -I like listen many kinds of music (Jazz, Latino, of course commercial and some music like Massive Attack and Shout out loud), or chilling out music (Café del Mar, Enya..)

Irish Music (traditional, U2, corrs,...)

2 - For the movies, I am huge fan concerning Gattaca, Pearl Harbor, Aviator, Dark City, Blade runner, Usual Suspect, Charlie Chapling movies, Home, Blue ice,

3 - I have my own youtube account : Gaelsinseine (Pronounce Gaels Insane that is word play for Gaels meaning Irish and In Seine (Paris River)) Where I share my passions, Massive Attack , Irish music, Classical Music

One Amazing Thing I've Done

1 - I was in Copenhagen in 2012, I did Kayak in town without doing it before...It takes 1 hour before to master it but during this time, I crossed transportation, public and touring boats..I overcame all the pressure...and I was happy for what I achieved and I wanted to do it the following day despite the fact I was supposed to leave..Another time for sure...

2 - On the 14th December, that was the Santacon 2013 (SantaClaus/ Xmas father, mother & lutins Parade/invasion)....that was the CS Massive Event in Paris, we played, we danced, we chilled out (in a samba atmosphere) from 3PM to 11PM in the streets of the Montmartre (Amelie Poulain District in Paris) ...I had so much fun....Looking forward to do it next year :)))

3 - In April 2014, I came to Tromso in Norway, to see last the Northern lights of the season...meeting one of my Friend, Maja...The color of the sky and the light are so different...I wish that I could see more to be 100% sure of what I saw...Tromso is a nice city for nature

4 - In May 2014, as part of the Lithuanian culture and way of living, I have been invited by my Cser Friends (Mixed group) to do an Lithuanian sauna in a traditional sauna site as my first time where I went 4 times (a lot for 1st time)....very relaxing and energizing experience
