My name is Ismaël Auray.

Recently, I've decided to relocate with my family to pursue my career outside of my home country: Canada. I'll share the highlights of this experience with you here. 

Not all who wander are lost

 My younger self asking you and me to go on an adventure! 

My younger self asking you and me to go on an adventure! 

Hello, my name is Ismaël!

I've always wanted to start a blog.

I have almost done it in the past under different alias, but I've never done it really seriously. By "seriously", I mean to post on a regular basis. I don't mean that I'll be "serious", and bore you to death.

To be completely honest, I guess I was a bit frighten about opening up to strangers. Aren't we all? But hey! Here it is. I am currently doing a lot of things to get out of my comfort zone. So, why not!?

You might be wondering what things? Cliffhanger! I'll write more on that specific subject matter soon.

If you follow this blog, I'll try to entertain you and bring you with me on an adventure. I'll try to be as authentic as possible, and I would ask you to do the same if you want. 

I don't want to make these posts all about myself, so I'll try to make this blog interactive as much as possible. There will be a section of comments, where you can ask questions or suggest subjects for other posts or discussions. Feel free to leave comments. I'll try to answer them as soon as I am able to. 

If you follow this blog, my hope is that we will get a chance to interact together. There will be some incredible pictures of things that will catch my imagination, some insights about interesting things that I will discover along the way. There might be some videos at some point. There might even be an homemade CRAZY song inspired by the Drama Llamma. (see below)

I haven't told you but, yes! I really enjoy GIFs! I think it's one of the best media format that can be used in the entire Internet!

So I'll leave you with the wise words of Tolkien, and the patch that I will sew on my backpack for my next adventure.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes, a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king
— J. R. R. Tolkien - The Lord of the Rings
