Hi. My name’s Étienne. Impossible to pronounce for anybody that doesn’t speak French.
In Vietnam, to my students I’m known as Ethan. I had to change my name in order to find work.
I arrived in Vietnam in October 2014 with the intention to “look around” and voilà! 3 years later and I’m cemented here.
I’ve always liked writing. From short stories and poems when I was a teenager to comic book reviews as a young adult, this naturally evolved to a travel journal.
I’m quite sedentary at the moment, and am leaving my philosophical shoes in the closet these days. However, role-playing and the fantastic still tingle me fancy.
Hope you enjoy these words.
