About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Realize half of what I have in mind

ABOUT ME

Hi there
My name is France (yeah just like the country, jokes opened!)
After my journalism studies, I left to be a backpacker in the amazing Australia. 2years later, I traveled through in New-Zealand and South east asia on the way back to France.
I have also been living in Belgium, Italy and traveling quite often those last years.
Next project is to open a restaurant with my mother in the north of france. So right now Im working in Switzerland to get more experience and $$$ .

In Epesses during Summer season, Im definitly up for meeting people around !

PHILOSOPHY

"Life: changing time in experience."
"It's not our circumstances so much as our feelings, beliefs and attitudes about those circumstances that make us happy or otherwise"
"Not all who wander are lost"

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you a bit of piano if you like.
If you wanna learn more in French than "voulez-vous coucher avec moi" and more in Italian than "la paaastaa", I'll be happy to share that with you!
I'll be really thanksful if somebody can finally help me to use my harmonica...
I'll be respectful if you can teach me the Australian cricket rules........
I can also introduce you to Vipassana meditation.
