  • Description


    Born in 1958 & 1955, we live, my wife and I, in a small village in South of France. My wife is a generalist doctor in our village and, for myself, after being a house-husband during 20 years with our 4 children (aged now 30, 27, 25, 23) I work as a volunteer cultural worker. Since 2010, I am involved in the organisation, in our village, of a cultural festival on the theme of "the praise of Slow travel". We like to meet people. We like nature, in particular birdwatching and we use to do cycling trips in several places of Europe. I am interested in languages and I can speak English, Occitan ( a local Romance language), Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Catalan, Esperanto and a little bit Romanian.
