About me

Be Welcome! The name of this project is like everything that has to be said... But the same, I can tell a little about me :) I'm an architect;rnI believe a lot in the trust, in the others... Life is much nicer when it's shared! That's why I love to travel, to meet people, to learn from everything and everybody... So I travel outside when I feel too, and the rest of the time I'm happy to welcome travelers in my home!!
