  • Description

    It is 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 an 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 raised and meet you.
    What makes you different from me is what I'm looking for.
    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 doing mainly hitchhiking. So I'll start from Paris, cross more than 15 countries and reach the country of the rising sun... if everything goes well. After this one year trip, I'll begin my journey in Japan with a one year Working Holiday visa.
    The fact is: I wanna travel slow. It means a long trip. It means meeting a lot of people, it means being fully 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 such a great time together. I can do a lot of things, even if I was more working with my brain last year (computer writing etc.), I know how to use my hands and I learn fast.
    One of my favorite quotes is this one from Shakespeare (even if it appears more complex than that sometimes) :
    " I shall be gone and live, or stay and die "
    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)
