My 2019 resolution

Hello everyone!

I haven’t posted anything on this blog since I moved to Cambodia, in August 2018. After living in Phnom Penh for 6 months I moved to Shanghai, where I have now been living for the past 2 months. Until now I haven’t had the time to write and I have been focusing more on creating nice content for Instagram. So that’s why from now on I will be writing shorter entries but I will post more often. I also want to focus on uploading more pictures than texts. Thank you for the ones who keep reading this (never updated) blog!

Here are some of my favorite pictures of 2019 so far! Enjoy 😘


Mobile technology used to reach more women with vital health and nutrition messages

An article written for UNICEF Cambodia following my field trip to Takeo.

“Many pregnant women and mothers in Cambodia do not have access to health centres and may not have adequate knowledge to take care of themselves during their pregnancy nor to take care of their new-born baby.

The Healthy Family Community is a project implemented by the NGO People in Need (PIN) with UNICEF support, that uses mHealth technology, which is the use of mobile phones in medical care, to provide maternal and new-born child health related messages to pregnant women and mothers.”

Video: Kayaking with Whales ðŸ³

Watch in HD

Kayak avec des baleines, longues de 14 mètres, en Argentine

One of the most incredible things I have experienced so far: kayaking with Southern Right Whales in Argentina, in 2015.

I am sorry about the quality of this video as it was so difficult to film and kayak at the same time. My waterproof camera is quite old, as I bought it in 2015 so it is not the best quality but I hope you still enjoy it!

Moving to Cambodia

Here are some thoughts after moving to Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

After living in South America and traveling to India, I thought I would be completely prepared to move to Cambodia. Everyone seemed to agree that it is a very beautiful and relaxed country and that it really deserved its nickname of the “land of smiles”. However, I am not sure what I was expecting coming out of Phnom Penh International Airport but I felt pretty overwhelmed with everything. It suddenly looked and smelled like India, only a little less loud.

Apart from India, it is the first Asian country that I visit, and during the half an hour ride from the airport to my new home, I could not stop myself from comparing the two countries (even though both places are completely different).

I guess when you move to a place, you always have that feeling: what am I doing here? I recall having the same mixed and confused feelings between excitement, fear and stress when moving to Buenos Aires. You fear that you would not enjoy this new home as much as you would have liked to. So everyone probably feels the same, especially when moving to a completely different place with a really different culture.



After traveling around Cambodia for a week and spending a few days in Phnom Penh, I quickly started to get used to the city. Crossing the road didn’t seem that difficult anymore, I discovered a ton of amazing restaurants and cafes, cool stores with very cheap shopping and met so many friendly Cambodians and expats.





I took all the pictures above on Silk Island, a small island very close to Phnom Penh. It was one of those day activities were you feel like: Ok I LOVE this city now. There is so much to discover, the people are amazingly friendly, the kids are always saying “hello” and waving at you and the nature is beautiful. This island is so close to the city and it is so perfect to relax and spend the day before heading back to Phnom Penh numerous places to go out.

I am so happy to have the strength to move places like that and to be able to experience so much by staying a year or half a year somewhere.

Life in a cattle station, Western Australia

Lyndon Station, somewhere in the middle of nowhere.

A few years ago, when I was living in Perth, Australia, I had the chance to spend two weeks in a cattle station, Lyndon Station. Those holidays remain one of the best memories I have from Australia.

The station is located in the middle of the bush. The first ‘city’ close by is Carnarvon, which counts approximately 6 000 inhabitants, and is a 4 hours drive away. Carnarvon is 900km North of Perth. The closest neighbors of the station are half an hour away by car. We climbed on a little hill, and Tim (the owner of Lyndon Station) told us: “everything you see now belongs to the station“, it goes on for hectares and hectares.

Il y a quelques années déjà, quand je vivais à Perth en Australie, j’ai eu l’occasion de passer deux semaines dans un vrai ranch australien, Lyndon Station. Ces vacances restent parmi les plus beaux souvenirs que j’ai de l’Australie.

Le ranch est au milieu de nulle part en plein bush australien. La ville la plus proche est Carnarvon, qui compte environ 6 000 habitants et est à 4 heures de route. Carnarvon se situe à 900km au nord de Perth. Les premiers voisins de Lyndon Station habitent à 30 minutes en voiture. Nous sommes montés sur une petite colline, et Tim (le propriétaire de Lyndon Station) nous dit : “tout ce que vous pouvez voir à l’horizon nous appartient“, toute la région semblait faire partie du ranch.








We swam in a mud lake, rode motorbikes, ate kangaroos, hung out with miners and cow-boys, chased goannas and lived the great life in the outback, my Finnish friend Rosa and I.

Nous avons nagé dans un lac boueux, fait de la moto, mangé des kangourous, côtoyé les miniers et les cow-boys, chassé les goannas (varan australien)… avec Rosa, mon amie finlandaise.









Rosa, Bruce my host father and I slept in a little cottage next to the main building of the cattle station. It was a small house really similar to the one Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman live in in the movie Australia: so cute and pretty.

Rosa, Bruce mon père d’accueil et moi dormions dans une petite maison près du bâtiment principal du ranch. La petite maison était très similaire à celle de Nicole Kidman et Hugh Jackman dans le film Australia : un petit cottage super joli au milieu de la nature.




Many of those pictures were taken by Bruce whom I thank so much for this trip. Him and Tim made me discover and fall in love with the Australian outback and I will forever be grateful. Can’t wait to go back!

De nombreuses photos ont été prises par Bruce en qui je suis extrêmement reconnaissante pour ce voyage. Tim et lui m’ont fait découvrir et tomber amoureuse du bush australien et je ne les remercierai jamais assez. En attendant d’y retourner je partage avec vous quelques dernières photos lors du coucher du soleil !




Eivissa, capital of Ibiza

On the 1st of June last year I moved to Ibiza, I was supposed to stay 3 months for a seasonal job. I was hired by one of the best 5* hotels in the North of the island to work in the spa as a hostess. After important work ethical issues and disagreements with the owner of the hotel I decided to leave. I ended up staying 3 days on the island…

I was so disappointed/angry/sad about that job and the horrible living conditions of the employees in a 5* hotel. Unable to afford a hotel to stay longer I booked a flight back home on the day I quit the job. To cheer me up I decided to visit Eivissa, the capital of the island, for the afternoon. I didn’t expect much of this city apart from seeing nightclubs and tall buildings.

I was so happily surprised…

En juin dernier, j’ai déménagé à Ibiza, je devais y rester 3 mois pour travailler en tant qu’hôtesse au spa d’un des plus beaux hôtels 5* du nord de l’île. Après de gros désaccords avec la propriétaire et des conditions de travail épouvantables, je décide de partir. Je serais restée 3 jours sur l’île…

J’étais tellement déçue/en colère/triste de la tournure que pris cette expérience, et vraiment en colère contre les conditions de vie des employés sur place. Ne pouvant pas rester sur l’île plus longtemps à cause du prix exorbitant des hôtels, je réservais mon billet d’avion le jour même de ma démission. Pour me réconforter je décidais de visiter Eivissa, capitale de l’île, pour la journée. Je ne m’attendais pas à grand chose à part boîtes de nuit et ville bétonnée…

Je crois qu’une ville ne m’a jamais autant étonnée.

My favorite picture –


Entering the ‘Dalt Vila’, the fortified old town of Eivissa, through this old gate. Dalt Vila has been a UNESCO World Heritage listed site since 1999.

I visited the city on a warm day in June and I took all the pictures at the ‘hora de la siesta’ which explains why all the streets were so quiet and empty. It was so relaxing and peaceful to walk around.

J’ai visité Eivissa une journée chaude du mois de juin, toutes ces photos ont été prises à la ‘hora de la siesta’, ce qui explique pourquoi il n’y a personne dans les rues.






Stunning view from the fortress –

I could really feel how important nap time is, everything was closed.







Feels like Morocco –



I found so many cute cafes with cozy terraces. My favorite though were all the hippy markets all around the city. They had amazing jewellery made with turquoises and other kinds of rocks and everything was pretty cheap.

J’ai découvert de nombreux cafés super cozy avec de belles terrasses. Les gens que j’ai rencontré étaient très sympas et accueillants. Il y a également des marchés hippy dans toute la ville, avec des bijoux magnifiques, faits avec des pierres telles que des turquoises, à des prix vraiment abordables.
