  • Description

    What brings me happiness ? A beautiful sunrise or a nice chocolate bar (both at the same time and I am fulfilled).
    I am Anaïs, from the mountainous French Alps, but my second home is Switzerland where I did my studies.
    I am a nice and friendly person, open-minded, who always tries to see the bright side of things. I love meeting new people and exchanging (life is all about sharing and learning from others, isn't it ?). I like travelling in a more immersive and meaningful way, this is why I enjoy volunteering so much, discovering other lifestyles, sharing life stories with my hosts.
    I try to enjoy each moment and appreciate the beauty of our amazing planet !
    I am keen to learn new skills, especially in gardening and how to grow my own food, which is one of my future projects.
