About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Bike -> Minsk ... and China!

ABOUT ME

Born in this world and trying to make the most of it

PHILOSOPHY

Every time I'm planning to go on a short trip within europe and not too long, it turns out that I eventually travel for a few months and quite far. My curiosity often get the better of me as you can see as I also have a tendency to always wanting to discover more!

I have been a vegetarian for more than 12 years, and have become a vegan for a few years as well . I thoroughly respect any kind of life, I think this is right anyone feels good, secure and loved but I also am respectful of people who haven't come the same way as long as they are open-minded and respectful.
