Let us present ourselves...
We are Patrick Nadeau, 26 years old, and Caroline Hamel, 24 years old,
both from Thetford Mines. We’ve been together for seven years now and we
aren’t at our first travel. Until today, we have been in Europe,
Australia, Malaysia and Thailand.
This idea of
discovering the world began more than a year ago.
As a biology
graduate from the University of Sherbrooke, Caroline did her internship
for the Research Center at Laval University’s Hospital Center. Patrick,
for his part, formerly was the coordinator of the Quebec Games 2003, and
completed a contract as coordinator of marketing and communications for
the Mineralogical and Mining Museum of Thetford Mines. He holds a
college diploma in ecotourism and adventure from Merici College.
For us, going
around the world is a life time dream. We accord great importance to the
realisation of our goals and believe that every human being is able to
realize great things.

is quite simple: we are leaving for an undetermined period and we want
to take advantage of the opportunities that will present themselves.
With experience, we are aware that planning a route, in this kind of
trip, rarely holds long. The people we’ll meet combined to our numerous
readers will multiply occasions of discovering different places. Some of
you have already offered lodging in Africa and in Europe. Will we leave
our country one year, 2 years, or more? We can’t tell; the story is to
