About Me


My current travel intinerary :)

By the way that description below is quite old.... it needs an update, hope to do it soon jajaja


I have recently chosen a new path for my life...
after getting my master, working 8 years and having a very interesting job, a comfortable situation in France... I decided to QUIT and to discover the world, the people, their cultures, the way they live..

but in the meantime i am starting seeing myself evolve.. to react to those new meetings, those new cultures, those new persons with their own stories, joys, messages...
Everyone is giving me their little "stone" that makes me grow in a different way..

And i'm really happy about it !!!
I am not saying i don't like who i was before (I absolutely did) but it is nice to see oneself enriching in your heart or mind...

My original goal was to see the world, but it also became to "know me"...

And what has started to be a simple few months trip became an adventure of every day, of every instants !!! A source of happiness, sharing, changing or making new plans, trying to be open to the world and to myself... by listening to my feelings or to any suggestions of fellow travellers or of random but beautful meetings...

By the way I think i'm a happy smily person, pretty easygoing, a bit shy sometimes, who tries is best to be kind.
Lots of very small things can easily draw a smile on my face. You'll see ;)

I want to thank all the nice wonderful people i met so far :)
and especially my family who made this all possible :)
