Berlin Day #1: Hauptstadt 

My definition of wanderlust: You wake up in the morning with a slight sick feeling in your tummy, probably because you haven’t had enough sleep and you’re buzzing with the idea of exploring new lands, until there is no soil left on earth that you haven’t touched, no sunset you haven’t seen, no flower you haven’t smelled and no smile you haven’t seen. For our break we chose Berlin, because though I’ve been to Germany so many times, I’ve never visited Berlin before. It has only been one day, but I already love this land of hipster art, full of such a history. Adapting to street art. The ruins of the Berlin Wall are everywhere, with the graffiti, history and the soul trapped into it. As a travel necessity, we took our matchy Kanken backpacks,…

My Little French Getaway

You know how I said it’s okay not to be okay? Yeah? Well sometimes in those times,  a friendly, warm welcome from an old friend is all you need. I decided to visit Strasbourg for my reading week to catch up with old friends! EasyJet might’ve delayed the moment of our reunion but it was one of the best decisions I have made. I love it how it only takes a sincere laugh for two friends to just keep on being like they always used to be, as if they don’t live in different countries, which in our case, is me being outre-manche. Here, like I do for all my travels, is my photo diary from my visit to Strasbourg:   The lovely view from the Cathédrale Notre Dame of Strasbourg. The way up was SO exhausting (so…

What’s In My Bag? // Travel Edition

 I’m all set. With 4 luggages full of cozy winter clothes and dorm room decorations, I’m ready to go! Besides my excitement, that leaves only one thing to take care of, to prepare my backpack! I’ve recently got myself this Fjallraven Kanken Bag (the colour is “Putty)” and I’m ready to fill it with all sorts of goodies: My Moleskine Travel Journal & 18 Month Journal I’m a total Moleskine addict. I believe that I own more than 10 notebooks, all with different purposes. My travel journal is more like a diary of things I see and the ways I feel when I’m abroad, so I believe that it will be useful when I’m living by myself in London. I have tried other journals besides Moleskine but none was able to keep me organised as…

Greece Photo Diary

So I came back from Greece last week, after having fun with my dear friends Myrto in Athens, we passed to Paros as four. The island was so very lovely and reminded me once again why I love Greece so much. I also got to wear my beachy Bali merchandise, which I will specify on another post. I finished Dracula in 3 days so I needed to get a book from somewere, I’m not a really chick flick book person but god she is funny. A sad story that I’ve witnessed. Poor kiddo. On top of the Acropoli again and always my favorite spot in Athens. Artsy street in Paros. If I could name the best thing on this island it would probably be the sunsets. Another view from Naoussa, Paros. Monastraki Square in Athens without…

Indonesia Photo Diary

If anyone ever actually enters this blog/ or my instagram, they might be asking “yeah but what is she actually doing in Indonesia other than eating delicious vegan food and taking selfies with monkeys” if so, here is you answer: These cutie pies captured my attention while we were on a “typical Bali house tour”, I’m guessing they were the neighbors. They immediately smiled and posed for me. So sweet and sincere. Vegan (I’m assuming) Balinese Cat munching on rice rolls, belongs to the owners of the house. Me posing awkwardly while watching the all healing water in Gunung Kawi, Ubud Hindu families come to this temple and swim in the water while praying, it is believed that the water has a spiritual and phsiycal healing effect. Son of a wood carver in a Wood…
