Hello, my name is Melissa and this is my blog!

Here are ten non-random things about me:

1- I’m French and I was born in the city where Napoleon Bonaparte bade farewell to the Imperial Guard right before his exile to Elba… beautiful Fontainebleau!

2- I loved to climb trees with my sister when I was a kid.

3- I sat on a sewing needle while cross stitching when I was 13 and felt stupid.

4- I survive mostly on a mixture of Ricoré (60% chicory and 40% coffee) and skim milk.

5- I am an obsessed foodie and wine enthusiast. I love litchis, sushis, rose tea, Curacao cocktails, and Ladurée macaroons. But above all I love Bibi’s couscous and paella (Bibi is my grandma). Yummmmmy!

6- I have read “The Ice People” by Barjavel at least seven times and watched “The Bodyguard” more than I can remember.

7- I’m 24 and I’ve visited over 25 countries all over the world. About two years ago I moved to Saigon, Vietnam, with my husband, Thomas.

8- I have a disturbing weakness for Discovery Channel – especially the MythBusters episodes.

9- Ever since I was little, I’ve always wanted to be a volcanologist or archaeologist. After a 5-year degree in a business school, I’ve been battling to become a marketing professional. Life sucks.

10- I totally agree with St. Augustine’s quote: “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page”.
