CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

Traveling is my passion, so are the people around me. I move from country to country working with refugees and sometimes at other development projects. Sometimes I'm up for a fierce discussion, sometimes for a crazy party, sometimes for a chilled out night on a desert, always for a cold beer :)

PHILOSOPHY

" Le voyage pour moi, c'est la saveur de la journée qui s'ouvre,

- Roland Dorgelès -
