“When you go to Vatel, you’re committed to an international outlook. Even though this is a very satisfying philosophy, it’s one that requires a good deal of efforts.
When you go abroad you have to have:
- a large ability of adaptation,
- a certain amount of humility,
- the ability to resist administrative red tape,
- wisdom so as not to put yourself in danger,
- the ability to overturn your own habits and live outside of your comfort zone.
I took advantage of my time there to visit Cambodia, Thailand, Laos and Japan.
I came back home much more mature and better armed to confront all the challenges that I’ve set for myself.
Yesterday Asia, today France, and tomorrow, the world!”
