About Me


Studying and traveling

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 gets 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 16 years. I 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.


Live, laugh, share!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Trekking in the Luang Namtha jungle in Laos and visiting some local villages with two magicians! They were interacting with villagers in such a way! Very good vibrations, laughters and smiles! I couldn't have experienced it in a better way!

I've also gone from Geneva to Minsk in Belarus by cycling, this was one of my best trips!

Teach, Learn, Share
