My travel diaries

Let’s trade the paddle against a pencil


Drifting along the water, stories, pictures, interviews & videos to move you, to make you dream, to inspire you and also to give you tons of information.

Drifting along the words: an heading signed Emmanuelle.
When I annouced to my sister that I was planning a trip around the world, that I was going to write a blog… She offers to find for each country I will go, a writer and a book extract telling about the author experience in this country. She told me:”This will be my contribution as a litterature lover to you journey around the world”.

Come with me to discover the hidden face of Oahu: The Windward Coast – on the East side of the Island, far from the Honolulu’s bulidibgs and the tourist crowd of Waikiki.
Direction Kaneohe and Kailua : 2 beaches towns with a peticular atmosphere where the beauty of the bays and beaches are just exceptional.  Here, the word post card  gets its real meaning.  

January-February 2020

On my agenda: Mexico City, San Miguel de Allende, Puerto Vallarta, the Mayan sites of Yucatan, Tulum, paddle board on the Cenotes … that was on paper.
But in March 2020, the COVID-19 raged and gradually invaded and paralyzed the whole earth.
Taking a bus or a plane, no thanks, I made the decision to stop in San Miguel de Allende and put my world tour on pause
So I’m going to share with you my daily life in Mexico during this period of containment and uncertainty.
