The Wild Atlantic Way: an Irish road-trip

Let’s be clear… a road-trip on the highway (M-something in Ireland) is of zero interest. A road-trip on the main roads (N-something in Ireland) is of very little interest… but a road-trip on the single-track routes boarding the cliffs while constantly banging your right hand on the car door because you’re just not able to […]

Tyrol: 4-days road-trip

At the corner of Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria and Italy is the beginning of the beautiful Tyrol region, and the mysterious lake Reschensee (or lake Resia).

How to prepare a road-trip in Ireland

Road-trips are the best when it comes to discovering Ireland. There’s no better way to experience the cities, villages and incredible natural sites of this enchanting country. Ireland is not limited to its main cities like Dublin, Belfast or Cork. From breathtaking landscapes and rural idylls to buzzing urban hubs and amazing festivals, it’s all waiting […]

London: April showers bring May flowers

12 months, 12 destinations, 12 photos. iPhone only, no tricks, no material, just a little filter maybe… I will show you how beautiful the world is if you just open your eyes and step outside of your daily routine. I am very late, it’s already June and I still need to tell you about April and […]

Discovering Dublin

First stop on my journey through Ireland, Dublin was a surprising discovery. I really enjoyed walking around the city’s historic center and I would probably not see any problem spending a little more time there sometime soon. A half-day in Dublin I landed in Dublin airport an hour late. It’s a short flight from Lyon […]

Granadilla de Abona

Tenerife: one week of remote co-working

When comes December, the weather in Lyon has been on the grey side for a couple of months already, and there’s nothing like packing up our lives and offices for a week (or more) of sunshine before heading toward Holiday season. For the second year in a row, Charlotte and I have been joining the […]

Scotland Sauces

A taste of Scotland: from Scottish breakfast to Haggis

Myth: you will not eat well when traveling through Scotland. One cannot be more wrong. I’ll give you that, there’s so much “bad press” around Haggis that you might fear a little bit the Scottish national dish. Fear not, unless you’re a hardcore vegetarian, it’s really not insurmountable. Personally, I had a blast tasting all […]

Geneva

Geneva – uncovered

When you think about Geneva, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Be honest. Banks? United Nations and Red Cross? Watches? Chocolate? Truth is, for the longest time, so did I. And it wasn’t a destination high on my list. I found it a little subdued and boring. And atrociously expensive for the […]

Pontremoli, Tuscany

The other Tuscany: no Firenze, Pisa or Sienna here!

I often notice how people tend to forget that France is not limited to Paris. You know how much I enjoy discovering all the beauty my own country has to offer, from Burgundy, to the Alps or the incredible fairy tales lands of the South West. Recently, I also wrote a whole article about traveling off […]

Barcelona-love

How to do downtown Barcelona in 2017

When you are not born and raised Catalan, there are two ways to do downtown Barcelona: the tourist way and the nomad way. Two very different crowds that rub shoulders in the crowded streets. Sometimes wearing one hat or the other depending on who they are hanging with. I have a lot of love for […]
