Bucharest is a city that has undergone many changes when Ceausescu came to power: we all know theParliament Palace , some of you will have heard about the demolitions of some old districts to make room for more modern constructions ... Let's say that this period left traces visible today in the Romanian landscape. During my trip to Bucharest, we took a moment to visit the Palace of Spring in Bucharest : this is the private residence of the Ceauşescu family. Not to be confused with the Parliament Palace, this immense building where parliament still sits today. The Palace of Spring, Palatul Primaverii in Raomanian, was the residence of the Ceausescu, a place arranged according to their tastes and where all the family lived. A richly decorated place, equipped with a wine cellar, a cinema
We have just returned from a week in a small village near Neluwa in Sri Lanka . We stayed " at the inhabitant " as the saying goes, in other words in a charming and caring family who pampered us for a week. More than a week in immersion, it was for us a week of disconnection and a realhymn to the slowness . Still, it made us a little afraid a priori. I explain all this in the article, but first of all I explain in a few sentences what brought us here and what we did. Here is the family that received us (and supported) during this week. "WHY DID THEY GO INTO THIS GALLEY?" " It's not very glorious, but that's the question we asked ourselves the day we arrived in the village. The people seem very charming, but there is absolutely nothing to do. No wifi, the closest town is n
So our first stop was Tokyo. This giant megalopolis (pleonasm?) Of more than 13 million inhabitants was a pleasant surprise for us who do not generally like big cities. We found it very airy, paradoxically quite calm and full of nature with many parks. The area we chose to put our luggage there is probably for something in this feeling. In Asakusa we rented an apartment for 5 nights via Airbnb. This area offers us all the advantages: quiet little streets with little traffic that lead to a magnificent set of temples (Senso-ji) and small shopping streets, a metro station nearby which allows you to get to the main points of interest of the city and ... a superb playground in which we quickly got used to spending 1 to 2 hours at each end of the day so that Éléanor had her time to her after da
We regularly receive questions from travelers wishing to go around the world with a baby (or an infant), or simply go on a trip or vacation with their little bit a few months after birth. I believe I have already answered in an earlier article on the ease and necessity of undertaking such a journey with a baby , so for this article I will devote myself to a practical case: ours! We've been traveling around the world for almost 11 months with our little Eleanor (and before that, we had made several trips since birth!). At the age of 2 years and 3 months, she was 1 year and 4 months old at the time of our departure in September 2016. What is the secret of Eléanor's natural joie de vivre? The answer below 🙂 And I will tell you why and how we get to make this trip a great adventu
Day 1: One word of order for this stay, friendliness, and above all no stress! Early morning departure from the Kunegel garage, where we were able to leave our vehicles. Luggage loaded, we board our comfortable coach tourism. Our driver briefly explains the main features of the bus and we are off, heading for Switzerland and its beautiful mountain scenery. Around 8:30 am, stop at the top of the Gotthard pass, the breakfast we took will be enjoyed in the fresh air ... fresh! in an enchanting setting. The journey begins again, letting us freely enjoy the scenery that passes by, the comments of the driver, a video or the opportunity offered by the wi-fi on board ... Arrival late afternoon in our 4 * in a village near the lake. Day 2: Verona, city of Romeo and Juliet ... but not only!
OLD QUEBEC, CANADA Old Québec, easily accessible from anywhere in the province by train, bus or car, is a must in Canada! I love its historical side, it is here that our country began to develop, that the fighting between France and England took place, but also where many of our adventurous ancestors docked long before that to leave to the Aboriginal meeting. Today, there are the popular Château Frontenac, known as postcards, as well as tons of historical, artistic and cultural museums, archaeological sites and even rather unusual places. Whether strolling along its arteries filled with souvenir shops, clothing or other trinkets, or stopping in its green areas, the historic area of the capital of Quebec has something to please everyone the types of travelers. Relaxed and calm, it swarms

You have to wonder what happens to SEPI our fellow party, a month ago, in Thailand. His stay in the land of smiles has just ended and he is now proud to let you discover his journey. Between the cities of the South and the conquest of the East, SEPI wished to discover the country in areas with little tourism. Where he was able to lend himself to the game of Indiana Jones and to put his little feet on a ground almost unknown to the French. Place to read his travel diary. Bangkok otherwise! "When I arrive in a new country, I like to discover the historical sites and the local culture. That is why I moved to the Khao San area, a tourist area but well connected to travel around Bangkok. I started walking along Ratchadamnoen Boulevard. I was able to discover beautiful historical monuments
