Traveling is my passion. I love discovering new culture and places. I’ve visited a lot of European countries, and most of the states and cities of the west coast of the United States. I have also lived and worked in Lao PDR.

I’m writing a lot about those experiences. I am running a blog where I post about differents subjects.

I like music. I play the guitar, the harmonica and sing in a small band

I like hiking, playing Handball and climbing.
