Everyone has a story to tell. What's yours?

Our goal is to inspire people by sharing everyone's story, everyone's passion. We all live by daily routines, gazing our smartphones, tablets, pc's all day, we don't look up anymore to people: our neighbours, strangers, people with a story.

That's our motivation, being part of the change. And that starts ... with you!
