Walking through the Circus of Cilaos

365 curves, this is what it takes as an average to enter this Circus. It is even more when you walk and the most difficult could also be the altitude. But it is totally worse it. This place is famous for the SPA, whine and lenses but also the quality of life and friendly people. […]

Mafate from the Taibit to Col des Boeufs

Imagine a place where your have no roads with tarmac and no power lines but people still live in a modern life. Probably futuristic? No it’s Mafate In these villages, the taxis are flying and people enjoy the nature (like any dream books) According to them, life is relax but sometime you could feel a bit […]

Salazie from Grand ilet to Hell-bourg

La Réunion island, offers hundreds of occasions to be mesmerised by its landscapes. The forest is one of the oldest on earth but despite the protection from UNESCO, the urban sprawl sacrifices its beauty. Here I was on my 3rd day of a hike going through the 3 natural circuses. I just past here the […]

A hike in the UNESCO world heritage of Reunion Island

My first and everlasting impression is: a travel in time and space… in minutes your scenery completely changes from a jungle to a continental atmosphere via something drier and back to high mountains … It is just a must. Put this on your bucket list, respect the surroundings, get more info here https://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1317/ and just […]

Hell-bourg

Coming back from a 3 days trekking in my usual flip flops, here are the last photos I could afford to make and I hope this will last connected place in the Cirque de Salazie. La Réunion island, offers hundreds of occasions to be mesmerised by its landscapes. The forest is one of the oldest […]

Futuroscope

If you are looking for a replacement for a decent fireworks show, try the Finale at Futuroscope. But not only … This park has been designed to give you a taste of the future of the motion pictures. There are no rollercoaster on high tracks but enough to give you emotions. One particularly good sensation […]

Ruber Museum – Museu do Seringal Vila Paraiso

Located a couple of minutes away from Manaus, the Museu do Seringal Vila Paraiso is an old movie set (for the movie “The Jungle” apparently) were you can step in the shoes of these antic producers of rubber. Life conditions must have been epic at the time as if you didn’t die as a consequence […]

Rio de Janeiro

Loosing my way in such city and be happy about it is probably one of the multiple way to try and describe what happens between my 2 ears. Anyway, this city has different adjectives between, magic, rich, dodgy, dangerous, dynamic, dirty, lively, trendy, connected, …. I came with the rain again but still managed to […]

Niterói

Most will naturally go to Rio de Janeiro. Did you hear about the other side of this river? There you have Niterói and here is what you can expect

Quick tour in the Amazonia forest and meeting with a tribe

After a ride on these water taxis and a quick walk between these massive trees, I was invited to sit in a hut and watch a dance made by the locals. Just to remind a bit on the context, you have to imagine that thousands of tourists are trying to play the “Indiana Jones” in […]

Rio Negro, Amazon and Manaus

Manaus is also famous for its rivers. Imagine, the Rio Negro is slightly warmer than the Amazon river. when they converge, they don’t mix straight away. Instead there is a sort of dance aside in a distance of 4 Kilometres. It is just impressive from the sky or from the surface. That’s not it. The […]

Manaus – 2018

The last big city before the wild Amazing Amazon looks like a movie set. On one side, Father Santa waits for you in a perfect occidental setup with its bars, skyscrapers, shopping malls and culture night. And on another side the expected life on the rhythm of the River and all local wonders. This city […]

Casa Branca 2018

My gratitude first goes to my friend and host who accommodate me for a couple of days in his life and involving routine. I still feel very lucky to have shared all this moments. Casa Branca is build in Minas Gerais, on the side of a National parc and Belo Horizonte. The nature surround all houses […]

Brasilia from the Sky

Following all the suggestions from the local, I did not visit the city. I however had to smile when flying above the Capital city of Brazil…. Have you ever played a computer game like Cim City? (here is the adult version)

Belo Horizonte 2018

10 years after, … Already after my last visit, this city has expended but not moved really. Reason why I go there is for the fantastic people you meet indeed. Belo Horizonte is however surrounded by wonders of nature that I can only recommend, …. If they stay.
