Due to his region's multilingual background and secondary status, he has worked with state and private agencies for the promotion, protection and expansion of his region's languages (Creole, Spanish and French). After working as Cabin Crew for 7 years on international, long-haul flights, Christophe is a well-seasoned traveler with insight on culture, adapting, flying (though he cannot offer flight discounts), history, and more.
