Thank you to all travelers!

A year around the world, more than 250 people with whom I shared a dinner, a simple visit or several days. So it’s time thanks to all of you whom I have bumped into each other on the road.

Thank you for your kindness, giggles. Thank you for participating in this journey that is the most wonderful, thank you for telling me your story, for allowing me to share your adventure. Thank you for these beautiful moments, evenings around local beers and wines, delicious foods. Thank you for the hiking, biking, lounging, beach, diving, discoveries days… Thank you for the gifts and support.

And above all, thank you for sharing a unique world view, that of seeing further!

I don’t forget also all the inhabitants of every country I can’t thank enough for their hospitality and charity. I think of this Quechua family that I stayed a night, lost in the Andean mountains where I had nowhere to sleep, to this Indonesian who dragged me on his scooter all day to make me discover the rice fields just for fun, to this old Vietnamese lady who offered me tea and asked me to tell her who I am, the Brazilian guide who explained me the entire life of the Santa Marta favela, guesthouses hosts in Argentina, like a second mom, Burmese who at 3 am found us a hotel just to be nice, the Vietnamese tourists in Laos that made me taste the joys of Lao Lao and their vodka! The Argentine couple whom took me a ride and a tour of the whole region, another, still hitch-hiking who invited me for breakfast, and I forget hundreds but their faces are still in my memory.

And I also thank my friends (especially… haha, no favoritism;)) who have taken news throughout (the magic of the Internet), which followed (some with passion, eh Didi;)) my adventures that visited me and shared a bit of adventure, who supported me, who understood. Everybody in the shade also made this trip a shared trip, enjoyed and magic.

All these encounters without which the trip would not exist.

But no worries, another journey begins, the next adventures happen in Australia and futher. It left for a year in the land of kangaroos, and always will be on the blog (not to mention that I have a lot of articles late !!). Soon for new adventures and new friends.
