ALWAYS BE YOURSELF. UNLESS YOU CAN BE A MERMAID. THEN, ALWAYS BE A MERMAID.
Yesterday, like every first Saturday of summer, was the MERMAID PARADE 2014!
I had loved it so much last year that Romain and I had decided to do it “for real” this time, we had planned to dress up and everything! Unfortunately, Romain is in North Carolina for work. I was a bit disappointed but still very excited, and I decided to go with my camera and a lot of sunscreen on to Coney Island to bring you many pictures.
Creativity, humor and cheerfulness were the … READ MORE
About two weeks ago, I started a series of short and long trips that I like to call “my trip around the world in 60 days”. I’m now taking a two-week break in New York (I went back to square one to do laundry and update the blog) but I will leave again soon, and I really intend to take this time to publish many articles – I have so many things to share with you.
This journey began with four days in Montreal.

Corcovado… It’s hard to wake up from such a dream!
After discovering the Caribbean coast in Puerto Viejo, we decided to end this journey in Costa Rica by visiting another National Park, but on the other side of this beautiful country, on the Pacific coast.

After our two first stop-offs in the rainforest jungle in Tortuguero and the Pacuare Lodge, we travelled to the Caribbean coast and spent two nights in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, a lovely colorful village full of Jamaican influences near the National Park of Cahuita. The surrounding beaches are famous for being the most beautiful ones on the coast, and the surfers particularly like the Puerto Viejo waves, known as the “salsa brava”, the biggest waves in Costa Rica. More than twenty different nationalities have settled there, and you can feel this very cosmopolitan and relaxed atmosphere when walking in … READ MORE
Fifty shades of Green – part 2!
After our first stay in Tortuguero, we headed to the destination I was the most eager to discover : the Pacuare Lodge, a haven of peace completely lost in the jungle by the Pacuare river. This place is considered by National Geographic as being one of the most beautiful eco-lodges in the world.
Yesterday we talked about photo equipment, today we’ll focus on eco-tourism and sustainable hotel management, an issue you obviously have to care about when you visit that kind of place.
One of this lodge specificity is that it’s really difficult … READ MORE
