How to do a luxury English country weekend

•••
I’ve been treated to a few beautiful sights in my travels. Sunsets painting the sky with fire in Indonesia. A thundering waterfall oasis in Thailand. Vibrant underwater kingdoms in Honduras. But as much as these memories have touched my heart and as much as I know there is so much more to discover, sometimes I catch a glimpse of a sight here in England that [...]

A year of swimming 52 lakes - The Jessica Lee Story

•••
I'm a nature girl. I could spend all my time running through forests, camping in the mountains or jumping into lakes. The thing is, I'm also a bit of a chicken when it comes to swimming in water with a temperature that's anything below 30°C. Hot showers all the way! Anyway, the project of the Canadian Jessica Lee really peaked my interest: Living in Berlin n[...]

Top 10 places to visit in the Balkans

•••
I have never been especially proud to be French, but I always felt particularly lucky to be European. Let’s be honest, it’s pretty cool to be able to hop on a plane for the weekend with only your ID in your pocket, fly to Barcelona, Rome, Porto or London and reach your destination in less than an hour.

The Italian Alps: A serious case of mountain love

•••
Being in the mountains is a bit like therapy for me, and I don’t even need to speak to anyone about anything.

The second part of my week in South Tyrol last month led me to Sexten (yeah, not kidding), a picture[...]

There are regional child-care clubs, family-friendly activities, amusement rides, kids hotels and so on. When I accepted an invitation to visit the area and typed the name[...]

Introduction to the Philippines

•••
When talking about travelling South East Asia, the Philippines is probably not the first country that comes to your mind. Last winter, the Philippines received a lot of media coverage because of the horrible impact caused by typhoon Haiyan. But while the Philippines are sadly regularly hit by such natural disasters, they are also an extremely diverse country[...]

Welcome to Colorado, France

•••
A few weeks ago was my birthday, and for the first time in years I was not going to celebrate it in a big city, surrounded by a group of friends. This time, I didn't feel like having a party. I wanted to spend it somewhere I’d never been before; to make the day an adventure. I was yearning for new horizons to explore – preferably of the spectacular kind. Wha[...]
