PHILOSOPHY

Live and let Live.

Keep smiling cause you never know who is falling in love with your smile.

Behave with the others the way you want them to behave with you.

I SCREAM You SCREAM, We all SCREAM for ICE CREAM!!!

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

"We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us" Anonymous

"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever"

Interests

Dancing is my passion I cannot live without it
Reading,Human rights,
Eating ice cream anywhere at any time in any temperature
Getting wet in the rain even in England,
TRAVELLING If I could I would do it all the time, as soon as I am bored I start planning a trip, I select a random country, start deciding which cities I want to go to how many days, what I want to see etc and as soon as I have a holiday I am off, every penny I earn goes into travelling, If globetrotting could be a profession I would be the best at it ;) as most of you I am sure
Animation avec les enfants
Fanatical about Blue :D
