On the list: dream beaches with white sand, surrounded by coconut trees, lush vegetation and turquoise water in which we spent hours swimming!

Hiking through the past on Lamma Island – Hong Kong

When we arrived in Hong Kong by the sea in the middle of the night, we dropped the anchor off a semi-wild, semi-industrialized island called Lamma Island. From the boat, we watched fascinated the island’s busy fishermen on their small boats, wondering if we were actually in Hong Kong… When after a few months temperatures became bearable (unlike the city life, which had become unbearable), we remembered Lamma and decided to give it a go.

Zhangjiajie, our hike in the heart of Avatar – China

Our journey in Western and Central China took us through Hunan; a province of an incredible beauty, inhabited by several ethnic minorities, endemic animal and plant species. It’s also in this subtropical climate province that we found the popular forest park of Zhangjiajie – whose natural elements are unmistakably reminiscent of the setting of the film Avatar. Curious, we let ourselves be tempted by a visit to the park. A visit under the sign of rain, mist, but also (and fortunately!) of wonders… and we can say it, of a real visual slap in the face!

Karakol, a kyrgyz welcoming land

Karakol. This small Kyrgyz country town eventually made a name for itself among travelers who, in their haste to venture into the mountains and hike to Lake Ala-Kul, missed out on all that Karakol has to offer. Perfectly integrated into the local life, we stayed more than two months in Karakol – without ever getting tired of its charm, its heritage, its local bazaar and the peaceful atmosphere that reigns in this welcoming land…

Planning a trip to Kyrgyzstan? You’ve probably heard about the famous Ala Kul trekking and Altyn Arashan hotsprings – and maybe you’re even planning to go there!… We understand you: having the opportunity to hike in the green Kyrgyz mountains, walking on a ridge, somewhere at 3900m above sea level; picnicking on the shores of a high altitude lake and meeting Kyrgyz nomads doesn’t happen every day!… On the other hand, you may not know that it’s possible to make this trek without a guide and in complete autonomy? The exact location of the free hotsprings in Altyn Arashan? Nor how to prepare this trek, in how many days, with what equipment? All the answers to your questions can be found in this trek guide!

Fifty shades of colors: Hormuz, the rainbow island

While talking to Vincent, a French traveler in Iran, he advised us to visit absolutely Hormuz island. “What is so special about this island?” “You will see…”. Done! Our decision was taken: we will camp on Hormuz and discover the island by ourselves! Landed on Hormuz, we found ourselves in a very simple village, inhabited by men with sun-kissed skin and veiled from head to toe women… Surrounded by tuk-tuk, lost under an overwhelming heat, we quickly left the village to explore this island and its secrets!
