About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

It's always difficult to describe ourselves... What to say... I'm joyful and laugh easily without loosing my serious when it comes to it; it's important for me to stay warm and open in this individualist world! But I keep my feet on the ground. I love love looove travelling, it allows some nice cultural discoveries and an amazing personal enrichment that I wouldn't find somewhere else.

I am now living with my boyfriend in a little cozy appartment but too small for a guest, unfortunetely!

PHILOSOPHY

Not to have a personal philosophy, it changes every days...

One the other hand, I would learn anything!=) Pretty curious in general.
