A French guy with a French accent – Crazy right? -. People say that I’m a funny guy even if they don’t understand me all the time. They all agree on the fact that I have a significant tendency to talk shit when I’m eating a sandwich (Ref: How I Met Your Mother).

I lived all around the Mediterranean sea, from Prades to Beausoleil. Being a student in Montpellier, I then got a job in Monaco. Managing the finance of a security company was the second significant experience of my life, after my passion for poker. 

I had to take decisions, speak another language, manage people, deal with millions of dollars… During this period, I became more mature – just a bit – and I wanted to learn more about myself. 

Then I decided to travel. This need for adventures has always been inside of me. I didn’t even hesitate when I said to my boss I wanted to leave the following year.

Two years of backpacking later, I discovered different parts of my personality that I didn’t know before. If you don’t go out of your comfort zone, if you don’t try new experiences, you don’t know who you are.

I know that Backpacking is not for everyone. But, we should all try it once. Because if you like it, it’s going to be very hard for you to stop – like a drug. And the rewards of doing it are exceptional.

I decided to share my passion with others. With this blog, I help people to travel to Colombia,  a country that stole my heart forever.
