About Me

CURRENT MISSION

being positive and creative is good for health and mind

ABOUT ME

I am a writer (journalist) specialised in art and travels. I love meeting people, other cultures, foreign languages and sharing moments around a little glass of wine (when possible). I like to learn from people. I like to share experiences. I like to sing sing sing and to walk for hours. I am pretty curious of everything, people generally say that I am easy going, attentioned, respectful and open minded.
My religion : reinventing my own little world everyday!

Je suis journaliste et j'aime profondément les rencontres et le partage. J'aime apprendre des autres et j'aime refaire le monde autour d'un verre sans trop se prendre au sérieux.
Je suis assez vivante et volontaire, respectueuse de l'autre.
Ma religion; "réinvente ton petit monde chaque jour"

PHILOSOPHY

When traveling take two bags one for you one for the other. (Goethe)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Staying few hours with Saddhus (holly people) in India in a psychedelic temple (Delhi) dedicated to God Hanuman. meeting the architect who took me to the catacombs of the temple!
Plunging in the Zambezi river not far from the edge of Victoria Falls. Could see rainbows from where I stood. Amazing experience!
Approaching whales and staying at less than one meter from them. It was so emotional that tears fell on their own.
