About Ariane Brien Chicoine

Gastronomy and surf get the best out of me and that’s why I let these heart crushes boss my existence. I am constantly seeking high emotions and knowledge through adventures, travels, food, sports, nature, relationships and music.

If you have a strong and deviant sense of humour: hello, I like you already <3
