I grew up in Brittany, 15 minutes away from the sea. Move to Bolivia, this country which does not have access to the sea, was not an easy decision to take! However, after living in Germany, Spain and Quebec, I decided to fly to new horizons, more authentic and preserved than anything I had known until then.
