    (Back to France due to pandemic time)

    Always weird to present oneself in a tiny white box.
    I mean, how can a 500 words text represent a person in her complexity? But let's see how it goes :)
    I'm a human being - better to start with a particular fact - who is from an old and tired, but also a magical and terrific country called France. Although I'm in love with France, sometimes I feel the urge to go and see the world, hit the road with a big thumb facing the sun.
    My plan is simple (planning is always simple, traveling is less but that's the beauty of it): I wanna reach Japan without taking the plane, by crossing lands, mainly doing hitchhiking.
    I'll start from Paris, cross around 15 countries for reaching Japan.
    The fact is: I wanna travel slow. It means a long trip. It means meeting a lot of different people, it means being aware and alive. Alternatives ways of living, thinking, doing are what I'm eager to encounter.
    So if you wanna host me for one night, week, month or more, we could have great fun together. I can give many bits of help on many subjects.
    Let's hit the road again.
    Ps: Countries I'll travel (Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Iran, India, Nepal, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, and finally Japan)

    The trip finished on September 2020.
