When I was 17 I left the nest and since then, I move out every 6 months. I love discovering new countries and culture. And most of all, I love meeting new people.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Of course, I am specialized in my birthplace Corsica."

How did you get involved in travel?

"As I live on an island, (Corsica) traveling is quite obvious. Since I am a child, it has always appeared as natural to me and this is how my parents raised me. That is why I wanted to work in a place which helps people to travel. This way, I never have the feeling to work!"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"When I was 9, my father, his friend and children and I, have traveled through the Saharan desert by car. Once the air-conditioning broke down. Of course, there were not a lot of villages on our road. We had to look for a garage owner and it was hard to find. This problem allowed us to meet awesome people that we would never have met otherwise. At this point, we changed the way we wanted to travel. We realized that the best way to travel was to meet people in the country and not just stay amongst ourselves."
