The B-Side...

"I like the sea, the sun, the beach .... I like discovering new things, be it perspectives, places, people or solutions, but I can not resist an antique.

I indulge in a good show or a good book.

I believe diversity enriches oneself, and that travelling is the best medicine for almost anything!"
