Hey folks ! My name's Max, I'm a frog, whoops, I mean French and also pretty much fluent in English (as weird as it might seems for a Frenchman to do so haha).
Currently working as a bartender in grey, stinky, noisy Paris, I actually miss travelling so much I though I could look for a penpal to exchange with !
I'm particularly interested in Eastern Europeans cultures and languages. And drinking habits, that goes without saying of course 😃
Well basically everything, I'm naturally curious about foreign countries and especially their History. As for languages, let's say that I'm genuinely interested in getting to learn basic expressions first, and maybe catching some slang terms and gross words as well, it's always fun to start off haha !
Hey, quite a bunch so far ! I did short trips in New York, Florida, Russia, Poland, Morocco, Egypt, Italy, Germany and Thailand.
But the most recent and biggest trips I did were in Norway, where I learned my actual job, and then Hong Kong and Taiwan. I lived and worked for one year in each of these exotic locations, which was a blast 😉 !
Huh... Tuff choice ! I could go for another round in Hong Kong, or get lost somewhere in the mysterious islands of the Pacific, blending homemade rum with rancid coconut milk and narcotic plants...
Having a cat. That shall be the ultimate thing to achieve for any human being !
I surely have a talent for making cool tropical cocktails, and silly sexually related jokes ( I told you I'm French ! You can't fight your cultural inheritance xD).
Oh many many things... My favorite book and movie of all time has to be Jurassic Park. When it comes to scientific thrillers, Michael Crichton is (well, "was", sadly...) the man !
I also particularly dig Hunter S. Thompson, Ian Flemming, Bret Easton Ellis, Clive Barker or Howard Philips Lovecraft amongst others for the books.
As for the movies, I'm generally a huge enthusiast for anything involving a weird creature devouring unfortunate people. And I also take great pleasure in a little cartoon or an anime from time to time.
I can make a puppet out of sock ! I also have the ability to imitate foreign accents pretty good and quick after hearing them once, even those of languages I don't speak.
I tend to be fascinated by couple unusual things at most, like weapons from the cold war era, weird animals like parasites or giant squids for example, movies so bad they become funny in a way xD
I'm currently trying to get back at drawing in my free time. I've been lazy enough to drop my pen for far too long.
Cats, and parasitic worms. Which got me into couple troubles on, heh, dinners and dates.
I enjoyed drawing dinosaurs for hours, while watching... You guessed it !
How to make a GOOD mojito, and how to ENJOY it rather than drinking it in 30 seconds, take your time damnit !!!
That Paris is still a horrible place to live in.
Literally every morning I succeeded waking up. I'm a nightbird, why d'you think I chose to work into bars in the first place hah !
Let's see... I could picture myself in a small, cheap house, in an American suburb with a couple tired cactus and palm trees, a dirty pool, and an awesome homemade wooden little bar. The whole place'll be full of weird exotic liquors, old movie posters and artefacts from my numerous adventures.
Yeah, I know that'll make any normal women run away for miles, I'll drop traps on my garden.
We can always distillate more rum, that wouldn't harm.
Get a cat, if you have one already, good, you can rest in peace !
How hard it can be to break the ice, it's true !
