Q: What is the first country you have visited?

Q: What is the last country you have visited?

MC: Last country was Vanuatu (South Pacific country), and I have been impressed by Tana island where I saw the Yasur volcano, the only one on earth you can reach the crater when it’s in activity. Be careful indeed!

Q: What is your next destination?

MC: Next trip should be Easter Island (Isla de Pasqua dependency of Chile in the Pacific Ocean) to picture the Moaï dressed with Esperance (Tunisian soccer club) polo.  A long and expensive travel, I hope I can do it one day.

Q: Can you tell us about the most dangerous travel experience?

MC: I can’t tell unfortunately because that country is supposed to be in brotherhood with mine, god bless it.

Q: If you have to pack only one thing in your luggage, what would it be?

MC: Certainly a camera, with some extra batteries and memory cards
