About Me


Practiquer mon français à Québec


I've done a lot less traveling than i want to, but i'm starting to get more into it. I love the outdoors, adventuring, and especially paddling. I'm not really a fan of being in the city, but Ottawa isnt a bad one to be in, because i can get out so easily, and be back in the wilderness whenever i want
