• Norway, Oslo to Bergen

    January 15, 2020 by

    Julien and I live to travel. We love our life in Paris, but what gets us through tough periods at work, is knowing when and where our next adventure’s going to be. This August, after the fiasco of summer 2018, we were longing for a destination with lots and lots of nature. Boy were we… Read more

    The whole “college roomate” experience is very much American. I for one am very glad I never had to share my room throughout uni, but I will never be able to introduce a close friend as “my old college roomate”. It is however the case for Julien and his friend Kevin who invited us to… Read more

  • Pays Basque

    September 22, 2019 by

    (Disclaimer : I meant to post this sooner, with higher quality photos, but WordPress has been impossible for 2 months so I just gave up…) My friend Christine jumps on every opportunity to head down to the well known region of “Pays Basque”. I now know why. Back in May (I know, it’s been a… Read more

  • Lisbon 2019

    June 9, 2019 by

    The great thing about my friend Alix – apart from her being a lovely person – is that her job in financial consulting forces her every now and then to move to cool European cities for semi-long periods of time. This is clearly very inconvenient for her, but quite the advantage for her friends, like… Read more

  • Ischia Island

    June 9, 2019 by

    Final stop of our Spring Italy trip was the Island of Ischia (because apparently Capri is so yesterday according to Julien). So we hopped on the most dreadful ferry journey of my life (insert picture of me being seasick for an hour) to get to the island. Travelling there off season meant many businesses were… Read more

  • Pompei and Caiazzo

    April 29, 2019 by

    Many of the fictions that stirred my childhood were populated by characters of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. I grew up reading about the feats of mythological heroes, the prophecies of the oracle of Delphi, and of course, the tragic burial of Pompei under the ashes of the Vesuvius. A visit of the ruins of… Read more

    April 17, 2019 by

    Early March, Julien and I flew to the land of pizza. Yes, we ate pizza every day of our trip. No, we didn’t get sick of it (except for the traumatic ferry ride to Ischia… but that’s another story for another time). First thing we did after settling in our little flat, we headed to… Read more

  • Tel Aviv

    March 21, 2019 by

    After cold rainy days in Jerusalem, you can imagine my happiness when arriving in warm sunny Tel Aviv. Walking along the beach, watching the sunset, exploring Yafo, wandering through shuks (markets), and eating amazing food was all we needed to start the new year. And taking pictures of cats! Lots of cats! Place where we… Read more

  • Masada and the Dead Sea

    March 18, 2019 by

    Floating on the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth, was that once in a lifetime experience we couldn’t get around doing when traveling to Israel. Without a car, we booked a tour and spent the day exploring the ruins of Masada in the desert (bring a picnic!) where we even felt some raindrops (something… Read more

  • Jerusalem

    March 7, 2019 by

    After spending Christmas with our respective families, Julien and I flew to Israel. The ignorant than I am was looking forward to sunny skirt weather, making our arrival in Jerusalem all the more brutal. It turns out, Jerusalem during Winter, is pretty cold. The windiest storm welcomed us as we headed to Mahane Yehuda Market… Read more

  • Seattle, 2nd time around

    February 6, 2019 by

    Previously… I think our second, and unexpected, stay in Seattle was the highlight of our North Pacific trip. For numerous reasons: knowing once and for all the wildfires had crushed our hopes to explore Canada (more on this over here), seeing the sky for the first time in days, and exploring areas of the city… Read more

  • Vancouver

    October 20, 2018 by

    When packing all my camera gear for our trip this summer, I thought Canada would be the place where I’d take the most photos… I even thought I’d be able to film and make some short film about our crazy wild adventure through British Columbia and Alberta, exploring forests, mountains, all the lakes, with perhaps… Read more

  • Seattle, Washington

    September 17, 2018 by

    Arriving into Seattle (home of Starbucks !) was quite surreal. The promise of lakes, mountains and pine trees vanished behind wildfire smoke. The disappearance of all non-urban landscape fortunately didn’t affect our main activities (they all revolve around food) and we still got to to visit the famous Pike Place market, ride the Monorail, and… Read more

  • Portland, Oregon

    September 9, 2018 by

    This summer Julien and I flew to the North Pacific West coast as neither of us knew this region of North America. We wanted to follow this itinerary : Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, before driving through British Columbia and Alberta. Things didn’t completely go as planned as hinted by the haze on some of the photos… Read more

  • Le Temps retrouvé

    May 19, 2018 by

    Il y avait déjà bien des années que, de Combray, tout ce qui n’était pas le théâtre et le drame de mon coucher n’existait plus pour moi, quand un jour d’hiver, comme je rentrais à la maison, ma mère, voyant que j’avais froid, me proposa de me faire prendre, contre mon habitude, un peu de… Read more

  • Dutch Spring on film

    May 7, 2018 by

    Here’s a series of shots from my 3rd trip to Amsterdam (it remains one of my favourite cities) and a visit (almost made impossible) to Keukenhof where my friends and I got to frolick by the beautiful tulip fields of Lisse.

    March 25, 2018 by

    Julien has been nagging me about these photos, so here they are ! A few captures from a memorable stay in this historical and culture heavy city. Enjoy ! (with a Spanish accent)     _______________________________________
