J’ai participé récemment au Salon du PVT à Paris, un Salon créé et organisé par le site PVTistes.net. J’étais présente en tant que bénévole pour faire part de mon expérience de PVTiste sur le stand de la Nouvelle Zélande en

New Zealand. This time, that’s the end.
I’ve been thinking and thinking again about my last weeks in New Zealand.

After ‘Celebrating my 29th Birthday on the other side of the Earth’, let’s celebrate Christmas on a remote island.
December 18th 2015. I wake up this morning with another year in my bloody face. The dreaded 29 years. Before leaving for New Zealand, I was bragging here and there that this year I would celebrate my birthday on the beach because it would be summer, that I would go to the movies to see the last Star Wars and that I would have a funky barbecue.
