The Solidream project is carried by three childhood friends : Brian Mathé, Morgan Monchaud and Siphay Vera.

BrianBrian Mathé – The distracted thinker

Where is Brian? Brian is in the kitchen! (French reference to English lessons…). He’s taking care of the dry sausage and wine! Epicurus would proud to see that, after three years of eating principally pasta and raw eggs, one of his spiritual sons has not lost any love of duck filet or stag terrine. Some think he is shy, he says he’s just an introvert. His adventure brothers say he thinks a little bit too much – at least not spontaneous enough. This being said, never forget that Brian is the only guy of the team to have dared dancing on Dawson City’s casino stage, driven by the joy of dancing with a French cancan dancer! On American TV, he was already mentioning he’s will to « meet the American girls » !

If life was a reel, travelling would be a good developing bath.

Morgan MonchaudMorgan Monchaud – The confident dreamer

You can create the most beautiful masterpiece but if it doesn’t rest on anything, it just falls onto the ground! Morgan is the frame of Solidream. He’s the most pragmatic of the team, but he’s also the one that dreams the biggest. By the way, when he was 4, he was already looking for the Kuna Indians during the 7 years he travelled with his parents on a sailboat. Have a drink with him, he can already take you far away. But beware : he has enough strength to persuade you ton say « yes » when you think « no »… For instance, he’s the one who convinced the others that spending nights out at -20°C on the Altiplano or crossing the Amazon would be a good idea! In other words, he’s a crook : he diverted peaceful destinies of some of his friends towards his dreams. Maybe it’s the Camargue region that gave him the chracteristics of the local animal : the bull. It can be risky to take him by the horns. Neither a Briton nor a Turkish, he’s stubborn anyway. But things aren’t always what they seem : he’s a sensitive person and could have been named Harry because, just like the film, he’s « a friend like Harry! » The ones who met him know he’s altruistic.

We like to present ourselves as travelling craftsmen, little independent mens proud to be French. We like to work hard, we are generous in making efforts, even if we are not perfect. Every day, we want to create from aspirations, with passion.

ENTREVUE.inddSiphay Vera – The original optimistic

With such a first name, he can’t just be normal person… He was born in Amiens but spent a fair amount of his life in Souther France. He has both laotian and Chilean roots, it’s hard to imagine how his two beautiful green eyes landed in France. Soo enough, his mother takes him from city to city. His education makes him used to travelling around and can explain his relatively emotional unstability. What strikes you is his optimism : theonly way to hear him grumble is to put your hands in his equipment without asking first. Siphya is a little bit like the penguins in Antarctica : he needs his space, otherwise he bites! What motivates him is action, his positive spirit often moves the team forward. For instance, he will be the first to ask his route to a Chinese person… Sometimes, because he wants to understand people so much – wether they speak Russian or Arabic – that he interprates what they say anyway! He is curious and will not hesitate to talk to you in the street – and it works better if you are a beautiful girl! But he’s more in love with life than anything else. He’s always in to party and has a quite good sense of humour. He’s a rare and appreciated boy.

  • Extrêmement motivés par l'ascension du pic anonyme culminant à 5416m d'altitude, nous cherchons la meilleure voie pour installer notre camp de base le plus haut possible. En remontant ce cours d'eau sur deux kilomètres, plutôt qu'en l'enjambant, nous serions en terres afghanes sans aucune barrière à franchir. Ici la nature n'est pas souillée par la soif de posséder, par la course au règne et l'obsession de limiter son espace de liberté dont l'Homme est parfois victime.Education
