2017 highlights

That is it folks! 2017 is ending tonight, some of you may even already be in 2018!

What a year it was! I travelled to Japan, France, Portugal and wandered around England. I worked more on the house which is starting to look more and more like a Pinterest worthy place and less and less like a pit. I have also finally been brave enough and made a significant job decision which should make 2018 as refreshing and exciting as scary. In summary, I have been busy!

I cannot wait to see what 2018 has in store for me and own my career and my life a little more, but before we say our final goodbye to 2017, I wanted to take seven minutes to look back on 2017.

I hope you will like that little highlight video! Not sure how you are planning to celebrate New Year’s Eve. I find it a bit overrated, to be honest, and instead of celebrating in my pyjamas while sipping on champagne in front of the TV, I have now to put my fancy dress costume on. Indeed, we will be saying goodbye to 2017 in full nineties attire, and Andrew and I are going as “Groundhog Day”, yep you read that right! Hellooo curly hair!

Now go and put on your smart outfit/ fancy dress costume/ pyjamas and celebrate one last time 2017!

See you next year beautiful people!

5 days in Tokyo – highlights

New video alert! The most challenging and the longest one I have edited so far! Challenging because technology failed me and this video almost killed my computer. And long, not because I love slow motions, just because we did so much during our five days in Tokyo!

Tokyo is an amazing city, it is very big, very modern and very old, very busy and very quiet all at the same time – everything you imagine it to be. We explored it all, from the old neighbourhood of Asakusa to the ‘technology’ neighbourhood of Akihabara.

We had a fantastic time there and surprisingly we didn’t feel overwhelmed or completely lost in translation. Japanese people speak much better English than people give them credit for, and, as I live in a big city, Tokyo just felt the same but different. Plus, the mixture of old and new reminded us very much of Europe in a strange way.

So dive in with me into the giant cosmopolitan city, where opposites attract, for the next 14 minutes! You can also find all the details of our stay in Tokyo, there!

Osaka and Nara – highlights

Another Japan video is live!

After our 2 days in Hiroshima, or next stop was Osaka where we spent 2 days as well. There are not many things to do in Osaka, so a day to explore the city centre is enough. You will see in the video below that we spent the first day exploring Osaka Castle and Dontobori, the city centre where you will find the famous Ebisu Bridge and the Glico Man sign.

On the second day, we headed out of the city to Nara, a public park famous for its huge temples and its roaming deer. We spent the day exploring the grounds and making new furry friends.

I will go into more details on all our Japan itinerary in a series of posts coming soon, in the meantime, if you want to see more of our Japan trip, have a look at my Kyoto video and the Hiroshima one. Next stop, Tokyo! Chances are this video will be at least an hour long as I have sooooo much to show you!

2 days in Hiroshima – highlights

New video alert!

I am still working through all the pictures and videos I made in Japan, and I finally had a few hours free to edit the footage of our 2 days spent in Hiroshima! A city which surprised us with its modernity and busy nightlife.

We spent a day exploring the city centre and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. The museum is beautifully done and the whole area shows you the impact of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in August 1945. An emotional visit yes, but an important one. It is hard to comprehend the level of destruction the local community experienced at the time when you walk in the streets of the lively city Hiroshima has now become.

On the second day, we headed to Miyajima island to visit the famous Shrines and see the world-famous floating Torii. It seems that 99% of all postcards of Japan must have been photographed there. It was one of the most beautiful places we visited during our entire trip! We also made a few furry friends on the way as you will see in the video below!

I hope you enjoy those 6 minutes in Hiroshima and you can find all the details of our stay here!

4 days in Kyoto – highlights

This Spring we took a trip of a lifetime. We went to Japan!

It was on our wander list for a very long time, so we decided to bite the bullet and use all our miles to make it across the world to the Land of the Rising Sun. We were not disappointed, Japan is EVERYTHING you imagine it to be. We were soooo ready for it that we didn’t even experience any cultural shock! We just embraced it all!

I did a bit of filming while there and here is the first highlight video of my ‘Japan series’ – 4 days in Kyoto.

I will, of course, share all the details of our trip in several blog posts coming soon, so watch this space!

A weekend on the Jurassic Coast – highlights

After a first video of my trip to Puglia, here is my second video creation – the highlights of our weekend on the Jurassic Coast. I like to play with new types of content and thought you would like it!

The Jurassic Coast stretches from Devon to Dorset and offers some of the most impressive and scenic views of England. Why this name? Millions of years ago this was the house to many palaeontology creatures and today it is the house of many fossils. It is a fantastic escape to the English seaside and I will soon share our full itinerary!

Also, you may wonder why our car feature so much in the video. Well… This is the creative input of Andrew who is having a love affair with his new Alfa Romeo Giulia…

Hope you enjoy it! You can find all the details of our stay on the Jurassic Coast here!

10 minutes in Puglia, Italy

Well, 11 minutes and 33 seconds to be precise.

Something very different today on the blog! I am a little scared to put this out there, but I thought you guys would be the best placed to let me know what you think. I am a beginner at this but making movies has always been a passion of mine, I just never shared them with anyone and thought it was about time to change this!

That’s it, people, I am officially a vlogger! And the worse vlogger that is, as you will see at 9: 44!

Enjoy the highlights of our trip to Puglia, Italy. And please let me know if you want to see more little movies like this!
