A man of passion, André got the travel bug in his youth during family camping holidays. This interest was confirmed by the Eiffel Tower when he was only 18 years old, and he developed other passions such as cinema and music over the years. André also worked as a columnist in this capacity. His taste buds then led him to explore the flavours of international dishes and the discovery of milesopedia now allows him to get to his destination better and ...more economically.
