Jonathan was on the eve of his 27th birthday. He finished his studies of communication and business management, and was working as a consultant in Brussels.

In short, this was the life that his parents wanted him to have.

Most of his friends were in relationships, some had children. The kind of life he also wanted to have… but not right away. He still had a dream to fulfill: to make a world tour.

On March 20, he left Belgium.
