Users by language

Hello everyone, I'm Albanbruchig. I'm a student residing in France. I have dual French (from Elsass/Alsace) and American (from Northern Virginia) nationality. I started editing on Wikivoyage (and Wikipedia in general) a few months ago. On Wikivoyage I usually work on pages about destinations in France (in English and in French), where I add infos to make them better.

Thanks to ThunderingTyphoons!'s work on his User page from which I partly inspired myself for my own.
