At the beginning of June I spent a week in Spain, in Andalusia precisely and I visited a very charming village called Frigiliana. It is located in the area of Malaga, next to the city of Nerja known for its caves and it is one of the most beautiful village in Spain called “a pueblo blanco”, a “white village” because all houses are white!
Please follow me through the narrow streets of the village….
Début juin, j’ai passé une semaine de vacances en Espagne et plus précisément en Andalousie et j’ai visité le village Frigiliana. Il est situé dans la province de Malaga, pas très loin de Nerja, connue pour ses grottes et il est renommé pour être l’un des plus beaux villages d’Espagne. Il fait parti des “villages blancs” (pueblo blanco) car pratiquement toutes les maisons sont blanches!
Je vous emmène faire un tour dans les petites ruelles très étroites du village…

Jambo! Jambo! (“hello” in swahili) ….
At the end of January I went for the first time in my life to Africa. Why Kenya? Well well well…. it all started by the desire to visit a place I’ve never been before…to enjoy sun, warmth and beautiful beaches…to avoid jetlag…to stay in small bungalows rather than big ugly hotels…to lay on the beach without being to close to people…. so Kenya was the winner!
The kenyan coast is beautiful and offered me all I wanted: sun, warmth, majestic Diani beach, white sand, peace and quietness, relaxation, farniente, ….
But what I did not expect from Kenya was the impact of the rough African savannah. Going on a Safari was not planned and was a spontaneous decision while being down there. But what an experience! Nature invaded me totally.
It is fun to drive through the savannah being alert all the time hoping to see as many animals as possible.
It is wonderful to see animals being totally free in their natural element.
It is humbling to experience that the savannah is not your territory, you are not mastering the place, you get the right to come in but you have to respect the rules. The One who created all of that is bigger than you.
It is fantastic to fall asleep with the sound of elephants rather than the sound of cars horning, crowd noise, people yelling on the phone, tv, etc….
In the savannah you forget the stress of the city and you embrace nature! It is so resourcing and relaxing! I still have pictures in my mind of this beautiful experience! I love nature and I need nature! Here below are 16 details of my vacations! I hope you will enjoy….
