About Me


Continue to explore our beautiful planet, improve my language skills (Spanish and Dutch in particular), learn from the locals wherever I go. Be a traveler, not a tourist!


French-canadian. Grew up in Québec and also lived in two other canadian provinces (Nova Scotia and New Brunswick). Moved to the Netherlands in September 2008.

Ma langue maternelle est le Français. I speak English as well. Puedo hablar Español bastante bien en ik spreek ook een beetje Nederlands.
