About Me

CURRENT MISSION

More, new and better experiences

ABOUT ME

Got into travelling following the example of 2 friends, guess it's becoming my way of life now.

PHILOSOPHY

All we can go is enjoy ourselves. We can't control much in life, and everything we do is half luck.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Two weeks trekking in Nepal, six days dirt biking in North Vietnam, Skydiving, scuba diving, teaching English in Ukraine to 5 year olds and dancing gangnam style with them. Living with a Vietnamese family with only one English speaking family member. The most beautiful social moments come from empathy.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach some English and speak some Vietnamese. I know Vietnam, Ukraine and the Philippines fairly well having lived there.

I have some strong opinions on feminism, gender roles and sexuality, having been to countries with very different views on the matter.

I have more strong opinions on what is and isn't important in life.

I want to inform others about some practical topics in psychology: Myer Briggs personality types and empathy in particular.

I can share a lot I've learned about personal development and how malleable we are

I can teach a little bit of salsa. I need to start dancing again :)

Countries I’ve Visited

Belgium, Croatia, Estonia, France, Hungary, Latvia, Malaysia, Nepal, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, Thailand, Turkey

Countries I’ve Lived In

Australia, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Viet Nam
