Visiting Bordeaux

Travel is the only thing you buy, that makes you richer 

One of the best thing about travelling is to be able to share great moments with your friends, family or your other half. At the end of the day the best souvenirs you can get from your trip are great moments you shared, because it stays with you in your mind and when it starts to fade away you can look back at the pictures and videos. Pictures, are souvenirs that money can’t buy they are very precious to me.

This weekend I went to a small trip to Bordeaux with 5 of my girlfriends. Even though it wasn’t a destination at other end of the world it was a very special trip filled with great laughs, girls night talk, and shopping.

Illustrating the trip with a few pictures :

“Miroir d’eau” by day 

The Miroir d’eau is the worlds biggest reflecting pool. It is called mirror because it reflects the beautiful “Place de la bourse” situated just in front of it. We were very lucky to be there in a very hot day to experiences the  fog created by the “Miroir d’eau”

To be able to see the ” Place de la Bourse” reflecting on the pool we had to come back in the evening to take this beautiful picture.

Dune of Pilat

The ” Dune of Pilat” is the tallest sand dune in Europe. It is situated in a town called “Arcachon”. We took a train from Bordeaux to Arcachon and it took us about 1h30 to get there. It is indeed a very beautiful place, but if I had to give you one advice is not to go there on a very hot whether as we did… Because it takes much more effort to climb the dune! One of the great thing about this dune is the beach situated on the other side ( if you have enough courage to climb back up the dune) you can take a swim or rest on the beach.

You can choose to climb by stairs or by sand

One day in Belgium- Brussels

Discovering Brussels

I made a tiny little trip with my boyfriend in Belgium yesterday. Here are a few snapshots we took during this trip. It is only 3 hours drive from Paris to Brussels, but we had some heavy traffic when we arrived Brussels. So it took us 4 hours to get there.

  1. So the first thing we wanted to do was EAT and we had in mind that in Brussels we have to eat fries, mussels and waffles : CHECKED

3. We stayed in a very lovely hotel, very situated, only 10 mins walk from the center. Every room is decorated with an artist masterpiece. It is very special.

Here is the address if you are interested :

Hotel Bloom

4. And finally I did some shopping, in Primark for the majority of the things. I know we have Primark in Paris now, but i felt that we didn’t have the same things 🙂 ( this is not an excuse). And yes, I have bought the TETRIS 3DS game because I love it. It helps me to disconnect after a long day of work 🙂

I love the scarf that I bought. I know it is very sad to buy a scarf in August but I always wanted a scarf like this and it was only 6€ 🙂

We may have missed out some places but the most important for us was to ENJOY and take some time away TOGETHER and REST!

And you, have you ever been to BRUSSELS ?

2 years ago I did an Asia Trip with my Best Friend and her sister. The best souvenirs on holiday are pictures. You can always look back at them and remember those great moments.

I am a very nostalgic person, I love looking back at pictures and videos. Today I just had one of those moments where I randomly found an old video that I made. It reminds me how important it is to cherish people around you, and great moments can be simple as great bursts of laughter you have with your friends. No need of fancy restaurants or paradise like landscape.

WE WENT TO 4 PLACES ALTOGETHER : HONG-KONG-MACAU-SINGAPORE-TAIWAN

DO YOU HAVE THOSE NOSTALGIC MOMENTS TOO ? WHAT ARE GREAT MOMENTS FOR YOU ?
