I am director of Mapping Worlds, a small company I founded in 2003, specialized in data presentation. I travel to meet clients (mostly international organizations or statistical institutes) and to participate in conferences.

When visiting a city, I love to explore it as time allows. Walking through the center, the parc, the waterfront, visiting a museum or landmark, going to a restaurant in a neighbourhood I don't yet know. Usually I take my running shoes and plot a nice route. This competes with time I also want to spend on work, preparing for the day ahead. The exploring part wins more often than not..

As a traveller I have a small footprint. I travel light and I am completely happy with a table for my laptop and a window to see the outside world. What I like about the appartments on Airbnb is the personal flavours, opposed to neutralized hotel rooms.
