Washington DC: an unexpected culinary adventure


Hi guys, I’ve been focusing on travel a lot more lately. Today is all about the United States of America’s capital. Or, kind of.

Silavadee, a peaceful nest in Koh Samui


Hello 2017! The last few weeks were very busy: basically a lot of paperwork to do before loads of projects coming up! When my first semester came to an end, all I needed was to get some time far away from Paris. Guess what? Tickets to fly to Thailand were booked a week ahead! No no, this is not craziness, just pragmatism! Life is too short to make plans, you never know what happens next. So, here is the situation.

Shades of Hygge in Copenhagen

I briefly visited the city a few months ago and really liked the atmosphere, the way people live and the city itself. When back to Paris, I had one thing in my mind: to go back and learn more about the culture.

SP34, the cozy spot in the Danish capital


What a good idea to go back to Copenhagen at the end of the year! Cold and windy, facing the weather, in the end, all you need is a warm and cozy place to rest at night. Located in the Latin Quarter of the Danish capital, the SP34 hotel opened in April 2014 and has its doors right opened to welcome you within an original Scandinavian haven.
