I was born in Arpajon (France) and i spent my childhood travelling. I lived in Virginia (USA) during five years, New Caledonia during 2 years, and i moved from town to town in France every 2 years. Why ? Because my father was in the army and he was always working in different places... The family just followed.
So since very young, i got used to breaking my roots and not seeing just one place as my home. This probably explains the thirst for movement (in all possible ways) that i have today.
I've been into Parkour since April of 2001, after seeing something on tv about it. A few years later i started getting interested in all types of adventures after reading a book written by Mike Horn about his travel around the world following the equator. I did several bicycle trips alone, for a start, and i'm now moving on to bigger things (but i'll tell you more about this soon).
What's my goal ? To challenge myself, to discover what i'm really made of and how far i can go.
To illustrate my point, here's something written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the writer of the "Petit Prince" :
"La terre nous en apprend plus long sur nous mêmes que tous les livres. Parce qu'elle nous résiste. L'homme se découvre quand il se mesure avec l'obstacle."
"The earth teaches us more about ourselves than all the books.
Because it resists us. Man discovers himself when he measures
himself against the obstacle."
