CULTURES SAUVAGES #6 - AT HOME

CULTURES SAUVAGES #6 - AT HOME

Since we’re all being asked to stay home, I wanted to bring up that subject that had been kind of haunting me for a few years now. What’s home?
In English, there’s a distinction between “house” and “home”. The first one would be purely physical, four walls, a roof and everything that can be found inside, while the other would have a more sentimental value, it’ll be the family household, a place you feel at home, an anchor, a place for returns.

CULTURES SAUVAGES #2 - MY LIFE IN A PRISON IN NEW-ZEALAND

Can you guess what I’m going to talk to you about? No? Well, I’m going to tell you about the time when I lived in a prison.

STORIES ON ALTERNATIVE ACCOMODATIONS

STORIES ON ALTERNATIVE ACCOMODATIONS

The other night I was invited to talk about my experiences when it comes to accommodations while travelling during a workshop about alternative tourism. It was all organized by the Enjoy’In hostel, which is a project to build a social and eco-friendly hostel in Mulhouse, the city I’m now living in.
I didn’t feel very legitimate to speak right after the Mulhouse’s tourist office and other touristic related companies. What could I bring? In the end, I decided to do as I always do when it comes to talking about travel: I simply told stories.

GEOCACHING WHILE TRAVELLING

GEOCACHING WHILE TRAVELLING

Geocaching is like a huge treasure hunt, on an international scale. Yep, that’s right, you can actually find little treasures everywhere in the world. When I say treasures, I’m obviously not talking about tonnes of gold, opals, Aladdin’s lamp or I-Phone 6 –no, no, no. The Geocaching’s treasures are more or less like the little surprises you can find into Kinder Eggs or the things you were secretly keeping into your child’s treasure box, the one in which you used to put tonnes of stickers, boondoggles, or finger puppets.
