About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoying Canada and preparing myself for the next crazy Montrealais winter!

ABOUT ME

A kind of big paradox : Even if I am grounded, I also really often have my head in the clouds...and spend my time in dreaming...thinking...strolling...watching people...I'm a human being lover : I'm sure there are so much interesting people to meet on this planet...but we are so small and life so short, that my only regret would be to miss nice meetings.So curious, I see my life in travelling as much as I can...to discover...and learn from people, human nature, in order to grow through and thanks to these trips...I was in Denmark for 6 months in 2010 thanks to an Erasmus exchange programm...I'm living right now in Montreal, Canada with a working holiday visa and enjoying it. I've visited Canada and the US during 1 and 1/2 month, but I'm not done with exploring as my next steps for the next years will be to travel to South America or Southern Asia...

PHILOSOPHY

"I shall be gone and live, or stay and die" -SHAKESPEARE

"You have comfort. You do not have the luxury. And do not tell me that money has anything to do with it. The luxury I advocate has nothing to do with money. It can not be bought. It is the reward of those who are not afraid of discomfort" - JEAN COCTEAU.

"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man" - GEORGE BERNARD SHAW

"What is the opposite of happiness? Sadness? No. Happiness and sadness are two sides of one coin, as are love and hate. Tears of happiness is a perfect illustration. The opposite of love is indifference and the opposite of happiness is ... boredom." TIMOTHY FERRIS

"The "postponers to tomorrow" are those who keep everything to the end (and find they have not lived)."
