Born and raised in a small town in South-West France
, I soon realized that the world was not limited to that town, neither my region and not even my country.
So, I decided to see the world. However, I'm not too big on traveling when it consists in visiting famous places surrounded by countless of other tourists. Also, I have a tendency to simply move to the destinations I'm interested in.
That's pretty much how I ended up living in seven cities in three countries in the past 20 years.
Nowadays, it seems that I have settled down, you know, with a steady job, a wonderful wife and a lovely daughter, but I still believe the most interesting places in the world are the ones outsiders don't know about, the ones that are not in travel guides. One of my main activities online is to introduce the world to my new home, one of the most wonderful parts of Japan, with this blog: Setouchi Explorer
I don't forget my home area (also one of the most wonderful parts of France) and the other parts of the world I'm familiar with on David + World
Some quotes I like or even try to live by:
"It's not about what happens to you, you have no control over that. It's about how you deal with what happens to you, that you can control."
"I didn't know if it was any good or not, but that didn't matter. I had written something new and fresh I hadn't written before and it felt wonderful." (Neil Gaiman - Smoke & Mirrors)
"Christ died for our sins. Dare we make his martyrdom meaningless by not committing them? "
"Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That'll teach you to keep your mouth shut."
"Nature has no laws, only habits."
