About Me

CURRENT MISSION

enjoying life, opening my heart for everybody, learning social development.

ABOUT ME

Today I want to fulfill my dream. Browsing the world. Therefore, from early 2008 I traveled for 11 months around south america (www.decouvrirnotreplanete.org/).
Responsible of the solidarity part of a humanitarian association which is financed by its theater performances (www.scribeparis.org). I left my chairman's responsibility in January 2008 for my trip.
I love to do trips above all for meeting local people : you ;o)
I work now for a social housing company in social help and development strategies.
I'm a transcendentalist.

PHILOSOPHY

Travel around the world is a dream for me. Discovering people, cultures and spiritualities. Welcome every heart on this earth.
I was from January 2008 in South America to make a trip around our earth during 3 years. I broke it 11 months after. I love to see all things through the eyes of local people. I will travel like this in Africa and Asia. (http://armenie2007.scribeparis.org http://blog.decouvrirnotreplanete.org in French : translate by google ;) )
My English is not bad, my Spanish too. I'm pleased by discovering our world because of you. We are all earth’s native.
I hope to do this trip without youth hostel because I want to meet local people ;)

I'm just a transcendentalist. I like taoism without practicing meditation often.

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." Antoine de Saint Exupéry
