Destination 'coup de ♥' : Çinque Taere, Italy

Destination 'coup de ♥' : Çinque Taere, Italy

With April has started what I think is safe to call the BEST TIME OF THE YEAR. April literally brings a new season (Hello, spring!), long sunny days - so far -, sunset after 8.30pm thanks to the time change, and more relax and carefree spirits in most of us. It also makes being stuck in an office all day long (missing out on those incredible sunny
More than Paris : Oléron, Charente-Maritime

More than Paris : Oléron, Charente-Maritime

CLICK ON THE PICTURE TO SEE IT FULLY One of the things I dislike the most about travelling, travellers and being a traveller is that we sometimes go to what is obvious and forget what is around. Let's take France as an example. So many people base their opinion of the country on the capital city, Paris. It is a beautiful city full of history and in

Picture of the Day : Naco, Arizona/Mexico

Volley Ball over the American/Mexican border I am rather appalled as to what has been happening recently and is still happening as we continue to live. All these people stuck on boats while governments debate whether to welcome them or not, dying at sea by the hundreds, fleeing their countries risking their lives doing so, seeking a refuge in the g

Picture of the Day : Bagan, Burma

Bagan (Burma) by Andy Ferrington, National Geographic Opened to international tourism since 2010 only, Burma might be dislodging a few south-Asia countries on the most-beautiful-country list in a few years time. Mostly still untouched by mass production and mass tourism, this new exotic destination has much to offer in terms of splendid lanscapes s
Chédigny Roses Festival : Touraine Gem

Chédigny Roses Festival : Touraine Gem

CLICK ON THE PICTURE TO SEE IT FULLY - The town's oldest rose bush planted in 1874 Every year during the last weekend of May, the little countryside town of Chédigny on the Loire Valley (France), organises the 'Festival des Roses' dedicated, as the name indicates, to roses. For its tenth instance in as many years, the roses festival's main goal wa

Pont des Arts locks removal - Paris Paris' Pont des Arts has said goodbye to its famous love locks. It is now a well-known fact that the Pont des Arts was close to crumbling down into the Seine river due to over 4 tonnes of metal locks making it that much heavier. For safety and protection of heritage reasons, it was decided that the locks were to
Iceland Excursion : The Golden Circle

Iceland Excursion : The Golden Circle

View of Reykjavik city from the top of the Hallgrímskirkja Church In the days leading to a trip, I always get restless. I check, check and triple-check everything I planned to see and do, that I have the plane tickets printed out, Visa at the ready when needed (which isn't much when you're European travelling mostly in Europe, so thank you Schenge

They are th
Picture of the Day : Kathmandu, Nepal

Picture of the Day : Kathmandu, Nepal

Kathmandu, Nepal With the recent events and amongst the horrifying pictures that keep coming our way, I thought that this week's Picture of the Day should celebrate or remember Nepal's beauty. We are never really trully prepared for natural disasters no matter what country we live in. Earthquakes, hurricanes, volcano eruptions and tsunamis are unpr
Destination 'coup de ♥' : Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan

Destination 'coup de ♥' : Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan

In recent years, I have been thinking about travelling to Russia. Although I am not a big fan of its head of state, it is a beautiful country and Moscow's Red Square and its Cathedral of Vasily the Blessed is, I feel, one of those places one has to see at least once in their lifetime. So this week's destination 'coup de coeur' is located in the Vol
