Koh Lanta, Thailand: We Found Paradise

We spent most of our month in Thailand in the islands on the South-West coast of the country. After Phuket and Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta offered a total change of scenery and atmosphere and it quickly became my favourite Thai place.

Top 10 Kauai Beaches

It had been a rather nice winter in Texas but I am now back in France for a few weeks and it has been all about winter coats and scarves again. I get very nostalgic when I think that exactly one year ago, we were in Hawaii, enjoying hikes and beach time on Oahu and Kauai islands.

Fredericksburg, Texas – Travel Guide

After several months on the road, going back to a sedentary life can be a relief as much as a challenge. Although I’m getting used to it, the sudden change of rhythm from being out all day to being more stationary has been a little rough. I want to keep travelling as one of our priorities and it started with a weekend away to Fredericksburg, Texas with friends.

Three Beautiful Hikes to Take in Kauai

During our long trip, we were lucky enough to be able to spend six weeks in Hawaii and discover two islands, Oahu and Kauai. Although they are both absolutely beautiful, I think I preferred Kauai for its beaches as well as its lush greenery. It is not called the “garden island” for nothing and the best way to make the most of its stunning landscapes is hiking.

Our Safari at Udawalawe National Park, Sri Lanka

Who knew you can go on a safari in Sri Lanka?! Certainly not us until we started designing our itinerary in the country. Simon had mentioned before that the first thing he would want to do in Africa if we ever go would be a safari. So when I found out that it was also a thing a Sri Lanka, I knew it would be part of our adventures.

What to Do Around Las Vegas

Las Vegas is full of things to do and see, but as much as I love it, such a busy city can be a bit stressful and you can feel like escaping all the hustle and bustle. Vegas being in the middle of a desert, you can already see all the beautiful mountains surrounding it without leaving. Nature lovers like me will find it very easy to drive to a quieter place.

Ella, a Little Piece of Heaven in Sri Lanka

Ella is by far our favourite Sri Lankan destination. We loved its cool weather, lush greenery and peacefulness and we were lucky enough to pick a fantastic guest house. We are strong believers that the accommodation you choose plays an important part in the way you are going to feel about a destination. The Villa Eden Paradise was one of the best places we stayed at throughout our travels. In addition to being located only a few minutes of walk away from the train station and the town’s main street, it was surrounded by vegetation, giving the feeling that it was secluded. Our welcoming and caring host also did everything he could to make our stay better.

How to See Koh Phi Phi Leh at its Best

Koh Phi Phi is composed of several islands among which Koh Phi Phi Leh, a small uninhabited islet, home to Leonardo DiCaprio’s famous Beach. Touring Koh Phi Phi Leh has become a major attraction since the film was released in 2000. This island features paradise beaches, clear waters and a dreamy lagoon. Its beauty is simply breathtaking.

From Kandy to Ella by Train

Kandy is said to be the only real big city, other than Colombo, in Sri Lanka. Ella, on the other hand, seemed to be a very quiet and relaxing place. It quickly became obvious that we would include them both in our Sri Lanakan itinerary.

Terrestrial Ha Long Bay: Day Trip to Tam Coc

We went to the nonetheless nice city of Hanoi mainly as a starting point to explore beautiful Ha Long Bay, both as a cruise and what is called the terrestrial part of it, Tam Coc.
