Welcome to the Firefly with a Travel-bug Blog!

One of my favorite quotes, for your day: 

Dreams are the seeds of change. Nothing ever grows without a seed, and nothing ever changes without a dream

— Debby Boone


Looking for Belugas in the Saint Laurent

So what is this all about… Well, those who know me a little know that I can hardly stay in one place; sitting still is not really my thing!!! From the South West Corner of France, a little place where my heart always returns known as “Colleignes”, I have wandered to amazing places, met incredible people, learned different ways of life, different cultures, different languages… And with every trip, either to settle down or as a visitor, close or far, in the next remote village, a megalopolis or on a farm in the middle of nowhere, I have been practicing my artistic eye by taking hundreds, even thousands of photos. From this eclectic collection, this happy jumble, some catch my attention, others have a sentimental value, a few reflect a state of mind, an emotion… Portraits, Landscapes, Challenges, wanderings with friends, city trips or travels to the other side of the world, there are some for all tastes and all moods!

With this site, I intend to shine a light on my world, (hence the firefly!) by displaying some photos or drawings, some DIY projects, some reflections about life! And of course, you’ll hear plenty about my whereabouts, my travel plans, my projects for a more sustainable life. It might sound a bit messy for the moment, but I’m sure that with time I’ll find my tone and be more organized! 

I hope you’ll enjoy the visit!
