The crazy French man has arrived! I have now almost spent more time abroad than living in my own country, can you believe that? At 21 years old, I had one dream in mind to work and travel the world at the same time. I could not speak English and the furthermost destination I have been was the “South of France”
Firstly, I studied marketing for two years, got my diploma, and attempt to get a degree. Knowing that what I was doing at that point was not the right path for me. I quit school after three months. It was time to “step up” and work hard to get where I wanted to be. Waking up early, and working different jobs including long shifts at the bread factory was my daily routine. Being part of a “non-wanted” life, I could not get stuck there forever. Eventually, I got a certificate that allows me to work with children & also became a lifeguard.
After two years of hard labor, I had enough and had to find a solution. I could not find a job abroad because of my poor English. I wrote a fake resume, sent it to different agencies in the hope to get “the Phone call” that will change my life. One week later, a tourism agency called and asked me if I will be interested in working in the “Bahamas” for a period of 6 to 7 months.
They urgently needed someone that could speak French and had to leave within a week. (Can you imagine how my parents reacted when I told them that). They required someone that could speak French, but they also mention English. Did I told to them that my English was sucked? I did not, and they were pretty pissed when I land in the Bahamas. They gave me all that I was looking for, an opportunity to work and travel! They give me three months to learn English, and I worked my A** off to get where I am today.
18 years later & I have now traveled over 40 countries, worked in 9 of them and cycled over 21000km over 16 countries and 3 continents.
