Today in WhatAWonderfulWorld, I am happy to share with you the wonderful side of Haiti! Haiti is often depicted by the press as a very poor and chaotic country. When I landed in Port au Prince, the heat was striking … Continue reading
It is my turn to share with you a glimpse of my favourite travel memories. Although, I have lost many of my travel photos when I was backpacking… My old beloved canon got stolen in Chile after a month of traveling on my own through North of Chile, Bolivia and Peru! I was lucky enough to meet wonderful people on my way who sent me back pictures we took together. Merci les amis!
Here are a selection of 10 of my favourite travels pictures:
(1) Buddhist Temple, Kathmandu, Nepal
Black and white picture revealing all the colours of Nepal’s spiritual and traditional soul: the start of an unforgettable vounteer experience(s).
(2) Diani Beach, Kenya
Backpacking along the coast was a wild experience, trying to get away from the tourists was not easy. Luckily, we found peace on this beautiful beach. Jumbo Kenya! (Hello Kenya)
(3) The Bean, Chicago, USA
I had a magical experience, while living and studying in Chicago. I loved it all! Look at this “magic” bean and see what it reveals!
(4) Valparaiso, Chile
This city has a soul, that’s what I’ve heard and then confirmed. Getting lost in the streets of “Valpo” is the means to discover its unique urban art and the views of its famous bay. This picture was taken when I went there for the first time! Love at first sight!
(5) Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
The most impressive landscape I have ever seen! The jeep takes you through changing moon-like sceneries right at the border of Chile and Bolivia. At the salar, you get off the jeep and can take dream-like pictures!
(6) Quintero, Chile
After a long drive to the coast, we arrived just in time for the show! And had “once” (tea and biscuits) by the ocean. It was summer. Such a relaxing time.
(7) Cartagena de las Indias, Colombia
This is my favourite city in Colombia, full of colourful houses, wooden balconies, exotic flowers and set in the unique landscape of the Caribbean.
(8) Île à Vache, Haïti
Haïti is surprising! Haïti is irresistible! Although its capital is overwhelming and chaotic, its hidden islands are quiet and peaceful.
(9) North of Corsica, France
French Island, Corsica, is also known as the island of beauty! True fact! Perfect for a mother-daughter get away of hiking and tasting unique cuisine.
(10) Béarn, France
I went to another part of France, to the Pyrenees, and it was as if I were traveling far away! There, people speak a dialect, have their own traditional dancing and singing and live in the middle of the mountains. I helped a shepherd taking his 130 ewes down the mountain before winter. The surrounding was stunning!
