Born in Colombia. Spent my first years in the mountains, in between Manizales, Cali, Bogotá, Armenia and Ibagué. Stable were the curves of the roads and the salsa from the seventies.
Raised in Belgium. Studied Latin in a medieval school. Wrote travel journals through Europe.
Lived in The United States. My grandfather used to bring me out to sail in the Gulf of Mexico. Dolphins passed by while reading in my hammock.
Came back to Belgium. Graduated in Political Sciences and International Relations. Danced until dawn in the Latin-American world of the University of Louvain. Loved autumn but missed the tropics.
Travelled through South America. Arrived in Bogotá. Did a Master in Latin American Studies. Worked as a researcher and then as a History and Geography teacher.
Became passionate about traveling around the world. Took photography and writing lessons. Started publishing travel articles and short stories.
Got my first own book published in 2019.
Left Bogota for a world tour. Wrote my second book in Holland during Covid.
Living in Mauritius now, waiting for Covid to let me go back on the road…
