A royal celebration of my aging in Paris

It's official; I've kicked off the last year of my twenties! Thirty is looming, oh my oh my. But that's still an entire year away. First, it was time to celebrate twenty-nine! And is there a better way to spent a birthday than abroad? I don't think so! It's a rule for me not to… Continue reading A royal celebration of my aging in Paris

Tackling two mountain passes and Lourdes in the French Pyrenees

Our trip through the North of Spain sadly ended after we finished our hike through the Ordesa valley, but it wasn't the complete end of our roadtrip. We still had to drive back home and for that, we had to cross the Pyrenees. Oh beautiful mountains, I can't just drive past you, can I? Late… Continue reading Tackling two mountain passes and Lourdes in the French Pyrenees

But no time -and reason- to sulk for long; new adventures awaited! The next region that we wanted to explore was the Cevennes. From… Continue reading Overnight stop in the Ardeche region to escape the heat

De-stressing in Pont-en-Royans and stressing on Col de la Machine

I've been traveling for many years now, and my favorite way of exploring a place has always been by foot. When I'm in a city, I love to wander through the labyrinth of streets, discovering little corners and unique streets with architecture that moves and inspires me. And when nature is calling me, I'm happiest… Continue reading De-stressing in Pont-en-Royans and stressing on Col de la Machine

To the top of the Grand Veymont in the Vercors Massif

When the friend you're traveling with has a thing with hiking to the top of mountains on holiday, you have no other choice but to follow and make sure his tradition remains intact. Thank god I love hiking. And mountain tops. And a challenge. As you can see, following was a very big sacrifice on… Continue reading To the top of the Grand Veymont in the Vercors Massif

Exploring the gorgeous trails at Cirque du Fer-à-Cheval

After an amazing two days in the Jura region, it was time to continue our roadtrip to another region of France. Yay! A colleague of my friend told us about a place in the Haute-Savoie called the Cirque du Fer-à-Cheval, an amphitheater-like valley close to the Swiss border. We only needed to see one picture… Continue reading Exploring the gorgeous trails at Cirque du Fer-à-Cheval
