About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Blossoming!

ABOUT ME

French mobile phone: +33 620 524 985

I am a conservative open-minded guy and a pragmatic dreamer ^^

I try to keep "child eyes": to remain curious and to always be surprised.

I quitted my job a few months ago to live one of my dream : being a full-time traveller. Now I'm back in France and thinking about the future :)

PHILOSOPHY

The best way to contribute to a better world is being himself really and totally blossomed.

Carpe diem

Experiencing the life's pleasures.

* "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." - Mahatma Gandhi

* "We do not inherit the earth from our fathers. We borrow it from our children." - Antoine de Saint Exupery

* "The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything." - Albert Einstein
