About Me

ABOUT ME

Hi ! Well, I don't like to describe myself like that, i'd rather talk directly with people, but I'd say that I'm a curious personn first of all. i find an interest in everything i see or what the other people are doing. I enjoy sports, but especially outdoor one's, like rock-climbing or skiing and of course hiking ! I traveled alone outside of europe for the first time 3 years ago, i went to Taiwan, for a volunteer project about forest conservation. And i think this experience changed a lot my vision of travelling and living... It made me feel that i love travelling but particularly learn how people are living and discover small details of the way of life in other country, instead of going in 5 countries in 3 weeks as some people do in southasia for example. Doing this you will learn nothing but only do the main turistic place, which is not enough at all for me. Then I'd say i prefer the quality than the quantity !

I'm studying tourism, and i like travelling, so i took a gap year and went to work in diferent country for 1 years and an half, in Chile, Sri Lanka and Nepal... maybe the best time of my life :)

Now i came back to my studies and i am doing an university exchange in Zagreb, Croatia, where i already enjoy all the café and terrasse of the city !
