ABOUT ME

"It's no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society. " Jiddu Krishnamurti

Hey citizen of this beautiful world.
About me?
Always hard to describe ourself objectively, but still...

My hometown is in Sarreguemines (little village in France at the boarder of Germany), I studied in Strasbourg (Biology, Plants, Microbiology...) And lived in Paris, Lille and now Montpellier.. I like sciences since a long time. I try to explain all the thing which are around us, and everything what happened can be explain. I like all kind of discussion, around a table with some beers, always! ;)
I try to make as sport as I can, jogging, swimming, biking, tennis, paddel tennis... I play Flying Disc in a club.
I use every free time to travel and go ahead this world which can be so beautiful and surprising!

"Travel is the only thing you buy, that makes you richer"

PHILOSOPHY

I love nature and I respect it. I appreciate the honesty as well as people of integrity. I am by nature very calm (i mean i'm never angry, for nothing) and I try not to take my head for trivia. Life is short, but it's the longest thing that i have. I try to enjoy each moment as if it's the last one, til the day when it'll be the last! =)

About love : €œIf you love a flower, don'€™t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation." Osho.

Take a smile ! :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

You can live amazing things everyday.
Get offline - Free your mind - Go outside - Look up at the sky - take in the beauty of the real world - exchange a smile - Reclaim free time - update your state, not just your status - Disconnect to reconnect.

Sometimes, the journey is just at your street corner !

Some weird things:

-Observe the departure of the rocket Ariane 5 in Kourou

-Even if i prefer nature to big cities, i felt very little in the middle of Times Square or at the top of the Empire State Building

-Climbing the Diable Via Ferrata during 5 hours, Mont-Tremblant National Park, Canada. Total elevation gained is 600 feet, and most of it is vertical. Perfects landscapes on a vast territory offering an abundance of nature : rolling hills, lakes, and rivers.. Happiness !
