My Travel Story

Hi Guys!

I am a Software Engineer in Paris, France.

Since I am a kid, my parents taught me how to live little, dream big and travel. Once I was old enough I left home for Scotland where I have spent 2 years of my life. It was an amazing experience.

2 years ago, after not traveling for a while, my passion came back across as I founded a Startup project with a colleague to develop Social traveling. The project ended but since then I have used my savings to travel a bit every year. This time I have taken a WHV (Working Holiday Visa) for Australia as it was my last chance (I am getting 31) to get there. This is my one true dream trip.

This project is a bit more costly than usual and I am soliciting you to help me reach out for my dream of the new world.

Leaving France to go to Australia means for me leaving an office job to have a real break I think everybody should have in life to blow off some steam and focus on more meaningful things. My idea after that trip is to develop new projects to improve occidental lifestyle, worklife that enables travels and changing environment. Being able to work from wherever you are.

There I will find a "physical" job and will dedicate some time to kid charity. As I was working in kid camps during summer for 5 years. Kids are an important to me.

Thank you in advance for taking time to read my story and for your generosity!

I truly believe in the social economy as it makes us consume in a more responsible way...

Sincerely yours,

Mike

  • What's Better Than A Backpack To Travel?

    What's better than a backpack to travel?
    Hi Guys!
    When you know you're going for a roadtrip, it's always good to travel with a backpack. In fact, a good backpack doesn't make you feel the weight as it's holding itself on your hips. Also it's important to consider what you really need for your trip and pack the essentials... With a Backpack I usually carry 11 to 18 kg maximum.
