Houdard spent his childhood in a small village in France, where his family farmed and raised cattle for more than 400 years. “One of my dreams is to have a farm in our village so my children can remain close to their roots and return from time to time and breath the air of our ancestors,” he says.

|SABBATICAL TOPIC||When I was a kid, one night my father took me to a pasture at the top of our village to try to dig up the opening to an underground tunnel used as an escape route during World War I. We never found it, but I know it exists. Ever since, I have often thought of conducting an archeological excavation one day, see what artifacts we might discover in that tunnel, find out what people were experiencing.|
