About Me

CURRENT MISSION

trying to be a "global, barbarian man" with a purpose in his life!

ABOUT ME

I'm trying to understand what to do next ;)

----

At the moment, I'm...
...trying to figure out how to live in a city without the sea... :)

After living in Asia for months (and loving every single moment), I felt it was time to go back in good ol' EU. So Berlin was my first experience and now... Brussels! It's been almost 3 years that I'm here and I fell in love completely with this city, the people, the chocolate&fries but most of all: beers :D

I like to discover new things, new people and new places, and I try to keep all those things deep in my heart... and on pictures.
Sometimes you can see me "loud and happy", sometimes I can be blue: it depends on what you do to (and for) me and on some thoughts that still belong to my mind... Music is always my way to mark my feelings.
So, do you need a list of adjectives? Ok, let's see: happy, funny, romantic, stubborn, lunatic, trustful & trustworthy, honest and concrete... At least that's what people say about me!

PHILOSOPHY

No regrets, no second thoughts, no expectations, no urgings, no claims.
(at least I try...)
