wanderlust

It was hectic since a while, but now It’s done! we’ve moved from Caen to Paris. Tomorrow is the first day of our 2 months of wandering! First, we’ll travel to South of Turkey to see my family and then we will be heading to south east asia for 1,5 month! It’ll do good to us to be away from everything for a while, to have the time to meditate for the future. I’ll see you all in October. I wish you all the best until then… 🙂

Depuis quelques temps, notre vie était bien chargée et agitée, mais là c’est fait, c’est fini! On a effectué notre déménagement de Caen à Paris. Demain sera le premier jour de notre grand voyage. On ira d’abord voir mes parents au sud de la Turquie. Ensuite, nous irons en Asie du sud est pour 1 mois et demi. Ça va nous faire du bien d’être si loin de tout pour nous vider la tête et méditer pour notre futur. Je vous dis au revoir en Octobre et je vous fait mes meilleures vœux jusqu’à la prochain fois.  🙂

enfin, merci!

J’étais encore de passage a Paris pour 4 jours pour faire la demande de visa vietnamien. A part l’obligation de prendre multiples fois le RER B et le métro parisien pour me rendre aux services publiques et diplomatiques dans ces temps caniculesques, ce séjour était très très sympa! J’ai pu voir plein d’amis, découvrir de nouveaux bars et cafés, me promener avec allégresse dans mes quartiers préférés, et surtout voir des vitrines, des magasins qui m’inspirent énormément. Merci etait un de ces magasins.

Malheureusement j’ai pu faire les photos qu’avec mon i-phone car j’avais honte de prendre des photos…d’ou la mauvaise qualite d’image!

today, i iodize myself

When at the beginning of the month I could swim 3 days in a row in the sea, my body probably felt as if it was the beginning of a long summer. Unfortunately not, it’s gray and cold here in Caen. But miraculously, yesterday I’ve found some glasswort in the market and ate it today! I would have never imagined to find it in France! (Why Not?!)

The Turkish way of cooking it is very easy, you just cook it 5-10 min. to get the salt out a little, add some garlic, lemon juice and olive oil, and eat it cold as a starter. That said, I admit there is something missing to eat it properly: RAKI!!!!

this will be my best friend this summer

Now it’s official! We are going to Thailand – Cambodge – Laos and Vietnam for 1,5 month this summer! This was my dream for like…forever!

 

The first thing I thought was shoes and the protection for my camera from the humidity and mousson rains. I always wore Birkenstock in the summer when I had long vacation in the mediterranean sea -which means when I was a child-. Now that I am going to need something solid for walking, in hot and in wet environment, I immediatly thought about Birkenstock! And I fell in love with the color and model of this one. My camera bag is the same leather color aswell which makes me even happier!

I think, I’ll go with these on my feet, with my camera bag, some meds, and with an empty bag.

Now that I have resolved the big issue of « confortable shoes » I can focus on to selling my furniture on ebay or leboncoin for our moving in en of july.

In the mean time, I would appreciate any advice for Thailand, Laos, Cambodge and Vietnam.

brittany holidays Part.2

The part 2 is the second day, where we headed for the Cap Frehel and than the beach on the cape « pleherel ». It was again fantastic view, breath-taking hights….but after the beauty of l’ile-de-brehat, it didn’t suprise us much.

people were putting the stones one up on the other. We did the same symbolicly for my 30th year by putting 30 stones together.

The last piece which was the ultimate touch of the sculpture was found by Fabien who actualy had his birthday that day (4th) and not the 5th as me. But as he is not 30 yet, it doesn’t count!

Than right after, at 6 am, we could swim at the beach until 8:30! that was awesome!

that’s it my friends! I am off to Paris in 2 hours, and i’m still in my pj’s. gotta go get prepared!!!See you next week!

brittany holidays Part 1.

I don’t have any motivation for anything since we got back…The truth is, I quit smoking since the day I got 30!AAAWWWWWW!!!!Hence the delay for putting the pictures online.

Anyway, let’s skip the subject before i get too stressed!

The first day we landed in the afternoon to Dinan on the harbour side to wait for our friends who would join us from Paris. I just loved that city, Iwasn’t expecting such a nice riverside, old houses and nature gathered! We laid down on the grass and had a nap. I couldn’t take pictures there, so i have some pictures from internet to show you how beautiful it is.

The next day was the big day! Full day in L’ile-de-Brehat: the reason why I wanted to make this vacation in Brittany. I’ve seen some pictures on the net and I fell in love with those hundreds of small islands, the blue-green scenery…It was totally worth seeing!

This house was the first thing I saw after landing to the island. I love the big tree.

We were lucky about the season because these islands are famous with their flora and fauna. On the other hand, it was maree basse period, so we couldn’t swim there even though the weather was very propitious.


Most of the pictures were taken by my mobile as I realised that i’ve mixed up the spare/full batteries from the empty ones! :((( )

I really enjoyed that day. It’s a dreamy spot, so many nice houses and gardens…I wish i was rich enough to buy me something there:) I highly recommend you to see that place if ever you have the chance.

Brittany, here we come!
