One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The Rockies (especially Lake Moraine) are the most beautiful things I have ever seen... to date! Well the view from Pao de Acucar in Rio de Janeiro and Foz do Iguacu are hard to beat as well!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can help people improving their French or their English.
I am essentially looking for exchanging on a broad range of subjects and hopefully make new friends!
