About Me




Hello everyone,

I find it quite difficult to sum up one's own personality in a few words, that can be interpreted or felt in another sense than the first one. So...my mission is to behave in the best way I can towards other people, i.e. First, I try to be respectful with everyone, not to complain and to forgive as a christian. As everyone knows, following precepts of God are not that simple but I try to keep them in mind.

This definitely sounds dry. I don't think I'm so, but I wanted to tell my general philosophy.

I must say I like people because I am very curious about what I don't know. I am open to any experience : new language, new country, new music...
Everyone owns a rich personality, not necessarily a secret, but is worth talking to. This doesn't mean I become the friend of everyone. I don't think it is neither possible nor desirable and I have different typs of relationships with people, like everyone I think.

Curiosity is a real help !


No favourite quotations, sorry :) !


I like lots of things.
I like everything which is related to arts (above all classical music, but not only and architecture), literature, history, geography and languages. I studied these matters at university and my character was shaped by them.

As not intellectual things, I've to confess that I like eating (I like everything), chatting with friends for hours about joys, troubles or experiences (and laughing, too), walking in nature, swimming and searching adventures in the world.
