A taste of Balinese ceremony

9th of November This morning, the atmosphere is electric in our Homestay. There is a ceremony tomorrow and the whole family is helping with preparations. Adrien left at 2AM to hike Mount Batur for sunrise. Unable to walk properly yet after a minor surgery on my foot, I stayed in and enjoy my breakfast while... Continue Reading →


A Spiritual Purification

We have been in Ubud for 3 days now, in the centre of Bali. We are staying in a lovely homestay with a local family. An extremely welcoming couple with their relatives (brother, sister, grandfather, nephews...), they make us feel at home every day (Sahadewa House – highly recommend it!). Yesterday we went for a...

In the jungle of Cape Tribulation

From a cool weather in Sydney when we arrived in Australia, to the dry heat of the desert and the rainy week in south Queensland, we have finally reached a tropical weather when we arrived in Cape Tribulation in the north-east of the country. We spent 3 days in the forest of Daintree national park.... Continue Reading →

All in all, the Whitsundays are a combination of... Continue Reading →

We stayed at Rainbow Beach overnight (yes, just the name makes it sound dreamy!) about 3 hours north of Brisbane, and took a day trip to Fraser from there. Harvey Bay, slightly further up north, is... Continue Reading →

But still, we made a stop at Girraween national park in an attempt to climb the Pyramid mountain but struggled to walk up the slippery rocks in the rain. We went from one... Continue Reading →

Stuck in the middle with you

Don't make rash decisions when travelling in the outback, is probably the lesson we take away from our adventure to Mutawintji National Park. About 3 hours drive on a dirt road from Broken Hill, we went to visit Mutawintji park. Lost in the absolute nowhere, we had a great day bush-walking in the park's gorges.... Continue Reading →

From Sydney to Broken Hill

What seemed like a small detour on the map, turned out to be a long journey from Sydney to Broken Hill, a goof size inland city of New South Wales that lives mostly from the silver mining industry. It took us 4 days to drive the 1,200km that separate both cities. We didn't drive very... Continue Reading →
