"I spent all of my childhood in Drôme and in Ponsas to be precise, a village less than an hour south of Lyon. The desire to travel did not interest me very much at this time, because I greatly appreciated my comfort zone, but everything changed when I was 19. With Nicolas Lermoyer, a childhood friend, we decided to take our first independent trip together, and we went to Sweden. This trip changed my life. The discovery of freedom, needing to manage a budget, the curiosity, the adventure .. From the very first day of this trip, a seed was planted in me, and a desire to travel the world has never left. I gradually began making other short trips around Europe and the desire continued to grow. I saw the great benefits that travel was bringing to me, and I said to myself: “Why not visit all the countries of the world?»
