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 […]

County Cork – Ireland

Wide, Wilde and timeless. County Cork offers days of beautiful tours ad natural interest. I strongly recommend a visit.

Knowth and Newgrange

An eye opener! This is the only thing that came up to my mind after this visit. Even worse, this question: Human being knew a complex form of communication,  had an advanced knowledge of stars, calendar and meaning of life. Something happened between. 5200 years later we all end up with a rectangular piece of plastic […]

Mizen Head: the west of the west

One of the most extreme west end of Ireland, the peninsula would be very exposed to maritime elements. I paid the entrance for you (I know…) and let you appreciate the view. I personally found it over built and worse was to start a massive block of concrete and leaving it unfinished. Worse, it’s seem […]

Kinsale 2017

Some souvenirs from this colourful place on the south coast of County Cork.

Giant Causeway are now real tourist attraction

First time I visited the place, you would park on the side of a tiny road and walk down the whole way on an old road. This last time was very much different. Visitor centre, outrageously expensive car park and path overused. The perfect receipt for success : is this the way we protect a […]

Dublin and around

Did I ever mentioned that I am always happy to walk around this capital? I will leave here 21 pictures of my last trips there.

Random tour in the South

So I basically took the car and went in Glendalough, Cahir, Cashel and Kilkenny. Here are a couple of photos to illustrate how nice this idea was 🙂

Belfast before Brexit

A last tour in Belfast before things will get more complicated. This city is a dense blend of history, culture and it just doesn’t look like that at first. Driving in town will first look “small” but the more you spend time, the more you need time to decrypts all symbols.

Amsterdam, culture and snow

For a couple of hour or a couple of days, this city is definitely worse the visit. A train takes 15 min from the airport and leave nearly every 5 min.

The Samson crane barge at Ardmore in the County of Waterford

In 1987, off the coast of Waterford, pushed by the Gael, a massive crane barge from Liverpool crashed along the cliffs. Dangerous pollutants were removed soon after the barge went aground and the 2 men aboard were rescued so naturally, instead of removing the remains, why wouldn’t we make history? I suppose we have more to follow […]

In this charming Haut-Rhin

Childhood or not, Alsace is one of the best compromise in Europe, Celte, Germanic, French and most of central in Europe. Alsace is rich in history.

Plants of Brittany

Can I invite you to crawl down a bit an see what we are usually stepping on when travelling in Brittany. I should do more of these, they are little treasures.

Costal views from Brittany

It’s like a postcard from these sunny places with untouched beaches and surrounding. It’s because it is sometimes too cold … 🙂

… and a night in Lyon

Lucky enough to walk in Lyon the nigh before the Light festival, may I share here what you can expect (without fighting the crowd)
