Since I was a kid, my dream was to travel around the world! I started reading many books and that was my way of wandering around the globe & learning about other cultures. Now, I travel as much as I can, eager to explore new destinations. In awe in front of the beauty of the different landscapes, the kindness of the locals & deliciousness of the local gastronomy (I'm a huge foodie!).
I still travel in France's different regions often, I keep discovering new experiences that I never thought of before: from relaxing on heavenly islands to truffle hunting in Provence.

How did you get involved in travel?
"I have always been passionate about traveling!
When I was in high school, I had many friends from other countries who came on exchange programs, I used to always recommend activities, then started to organize our trips in order for me to show them around the country. Seeing them so happy during and after the trip would give me the best feeling!
Hence, I started studying tourism. A few years ago, during my master's degree, I joined the Meeting the French wonderful team for a 6-month internship, and have been in this company doing the job I love since then! It is very easy to recommend a destination that you love!"
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"There are many experiences that affected me in a good way, it is difficult to choose!
However, during a recent trip at the beginning of 2019, I went to the region Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, where we hiked in a place called "Les échelles de la mort" - which means the scales/ladders of death.
This place is located in the French border with Switzerland, smugglers used to take this path & climb three ladders & cross the border to deliver merchandise between the two countries. Now, it became a hiking trail, with a breathtaking view from the top.
We were hiking as our friend-guide told us the history of this place when we arrived at the top, we were speechless. The view on the mountains, the forest, the steam coming up from the thermal hot springs surrounding the mountains, the canyon. It was one of the most beautiful places I have visited!"
