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 […]

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 […]

Alps - Grand Saint Bernard

Road-trip in the Alps: 1 day, 3 countries

There’s something a bit magical in the simple fact of waking-up on a crisp fall morning in the Aosta Valley, bringing your coffee out on the balcony and breathing the pure air of the Alps. The Alps in Italy We had arrived late the previous night, and had to drive the narrow road all the […]

Applecross - Stags

Applecross: the hidden gem of the Scottish Highlands

As we were enjoying a scrumptious breakfast at Catherine’s table in our beautiful BnB in Thrumster, we shared our road map with a lovely couple whom was sitting at the table. As soon as I mentioned Applecross, the man’s face lit up. “It’s such a beautiful place, you’re going to love it there. Although… which […]

Dornoch No Parking

Dornoch: peace, quiet and mindfulness

Since I came back from Patagonia, my thirst for the great outdoors have been endless. And that was the primary motivation for this May trip to Scotland. Dornoch was our first pit-stop on the North Coast 500. Lately, I have been pretty serious about making the right choices. And that was entirely part of the […]
