About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Go to the odd places

ABOUT ME

Random is probably the word that describes me the most.

I recently moved into a fascinating city, at the heart of South-Eastern Europe. I love Belgrade, I find it dynamic and attrative, and so are its people.

I love to cook, eat good food and enjoy it with friend because cooking for yourself is BORING I don't have much money, but make the most of it expecially when it's time to eat ice cream

I love life, and most of the thing that are part of it.

I've been studying Philosophy at University but I've quit, school is not for me right now.

As a French descent, my principal activities are eating strong cheese, drinking red wine and espresso. Out of that I'm a part time veggie.

Most of the time I hang out at karaoke nights, museum, shows, bars, thrift stores, with my camera and the rest of the time I try to learn serbo-croatian.

I work sometimes.

PHILOSOPHY

Travelling and Couch Surfing correspond to my idea of what life should be about: sharing.
