Travel || Corsica 2015 – Part 3.

Hey you!

Here we are again, beginning with the moment we discoverd Porto Vecchio. It was a beautiful city, I loved it! There was an citadel, who is higher and where you have an incredible view, and there is the port, with all his little restaurants, boats to hire, etc. Just lovely. (We went to this port like 2 times in the evening for an ice cream, I just loved the ambience that it had! ) Just one disadvantage: it was steep everywhere in this city. When you have to walk from one point of the city to another, it’s like you have to climb a mountain, haha.

Next day, Boni Facio was on our planning. Seen as one of the biggest tourist cities, we began to visit it. Beautiful, also a little bit higher than the places around it, and with that view…. stunning! But, like a lot of cities in Corsica, there wasn’t a lot to visit …

Our last day in Rondinara we’re going to ride till Alta Rocca to visit there a little bit of the villages with there typical Corsican culture. We’ve even visited a nice museum, who’s name I don’t know anymore I’m sorry. Big disappointment when we arrived in Sainte-Lucie de Tallano: there was like a lot to visit but everything was closed in Septembre 😦 Then we wanted to see Cuccurruzi, but you had to walk like 2 hours and we were afraid it wasn’t worth it. So, we finally ended this day of long rides with a little walk along the natural pools of Zonza. I found this looking like a fairy tale

Last stop before we went back was Calvi: the north of Corsica.
We took a long time to go from Rondinara to Calvi, I was mostly of the time asleep, again. Once there, we had a cute camping, Camping de Paduella. I really loved this one! Near everything, with not a lot of persons, perfect area,… Once installed, we went to the beach (it wasn’t even 5 min walking). We were lying on the beach and then suddenly, the train passed near us, really weird ahah. They don’t really understand it I think.

Next day, we were taking a look in l’Ile Rousse. It was still like a typical Corsican city: little Streets, shops everywhere, a church,… I liked it, but it was just feeling so the same at the end. We’ve also done here a really long walk till the headlight so I can take my pictures haha.

Last day of real holidays, and I’ve begin it really cool: I went for the first time in my life diving undersea. It was just magic! The city (Calvi) from seaside is so different but under the sea… waw! I saw a lot of fishes and also a red starfish. After this beautiful experience, we visited the city in a rush and then leave it again to go to Ajaccio, where it all beginned.

The day after, we left the Island and we were back on the continent. It was a beautiful city, a nice experience and a wonderful holiday!

Q: Did you ever went on holiday without your parents ? How was it?

Travel || Corsica 2015 ~ Part 2.

Hey guys!

So, here I’m back again. So we finished last time with saying that that one Saturday we went on a boattrip. Well, we woke up really early for holidays, like 7 PM. Once arrived there, I couldn’t find my sun cream anymore (and knowing I can be in the sun for like 10 minutes and already look like a tomato, this was realllyyyy a problem). After searching and stressing, I finally found it in the bag of my friend. Yes, it was really early in the morning. Than, we installed ourself in the boat and begin the whole trip. It was wonderful, we saw a lot of beaches, natural or where tourists doesn’t go. Also a lot of “Calanques” (it are like rocks in the sea, where you can have some caves, etc.). We lunched at a lonely beach with a nice giant rock in front of us. Mostly of the people who where with us climbed it and so do I. Little, courageous me. Than in the afternoon, we visited still some nice and cute places. And then, we swim in some like transparant, blue water with fishes. Really crazy! We didn’t really see a dolphin, just once the back of one… I hoped to see a whole group of it.

Next day, we went for a more cultural trip. We went to Sartène, seen as the most beautiful city of Corsica and also with a lot of cultural spots. First, we went to the museum there. Just to arrive there, it was like Climbing a mountain. Nice museum, but we needed to continu. So, we did a walk throught Sartène. It was a beautiful city, but for that calling it most beautiful city? Nah. Than, we continued to Cauria, a prehistoric city, called one of the most impressive of Corsica. Just to arrive there, we had to face like the end of the world: roads that aren’t finished, places where there is just one house in the kilometre you ride, the GPS who was totally lost,.. When we finally arrived, we had to park our car and walk a lot…. for a few stones. Nothing waw, nothing impressive, haha! It was beautiful view to be honest, but the stones where nothing. So we decided to discover Olmeto, who was litteraly a beautiful view, a church and some cute houses.

It’s Saturday, and today, we’re leaving our beautiful little camping to go to Rondinara, one of the most beautiful beaches of the Island and near Bonifacio and Porto Vechhio. The first day we just enjoyed the beach. Next day, we discover Porto Vecchio… But I’m gonna leave you know.

Do you like the views? Do you wanna go there ?

Love of Lou!

 

Travel || Corsica 2015

Hi guys! So, I promised to make a post soon about my holidays in Corsica and I still haven’t done it. What a shame.. Some months ago, a friend of mine told me she searched someone to go with her to Corscia. I searched since a few days a friend to go on holiday with without having an idea of which country I wanted to visit. When she told me that, I agreed going to Corsica with her without any idea of what kind of country Corsica was. But a country you haven’t visit already has to be visit! So I asked people around me who has been there, what they have seen, what they thought of it,etc. A lot of people said it was amazing there, that the views are more than awesome and I would like it.

We began to organise the trip a little bit: booking the boat, searching the roads, finding some camping,… (Oh yeah, I forgot to tell: we wanted to do it all camping, just for fun) Only that was already a big deal for me because I always went on holiday with my parents organizing it (and if you know how good my mom can plan, you know I didn’t have to think about planning).

And then, Saturday 5th of Septembre, we woke up early (on 4:00 AM!) and did Thousand and a little bit more kilometers, throught 5 countries to arrive in Nice (We have seen in one day: Belgium, France, Suisse, Italy and Luxembourg!) I slept a lot in the car, just woke up for eating and taking pictures, because there is no better place to sleep than in a car! Once arrived in Nice, we slept in a little Hotel, Ibis Budget for the night. The next day we woke up early enough to visit Nice before taking our boat to Corsica. I had never seen Nice before that’s why I was happy that we finally visit it and I liked it! Beautiful Streets with cute little shops and a lot of people what give it a nice atmosphere! In the afternoon we left the continent and arrived in Ajaccio only in the evening. There we slept in a Original, artistic “Chambre d’Hôtes”. The next day we visited Ajaccio, the city where Napoleon Bonaparte lived, and in the afternoon we immediatly went to Olmeto.

When we finally arrived in Olmeto, after riding in the most horrible, typical mountain ways, we installed ourself in our camping, Vigna Maggiore. Perfect swimpool, cute driveways with a lot of flowers and little, nice reception. Really a dreamcamping! After been totally installed, we enjoyed our nice swimpool with lovely view (and fresh water, finally!). The next day, we went visiting Propriano, who’s literally the opposing mountain of Olmeto. Cute little city, with a lot of shops for tourists and at the end a beautiful beach! So, we ended our day on the beach of Propriano. Which was really nice because when we swom or snorkelled, you saw a lot of fishes just swimming next to you. When we were on our way back, we saw some promotions to make a boattrip to see the coasts of Corsica. They also told us that, somedays, we saw dauphins! So, we planned a trip for Thursday.

Q: Do you want to know how the boattrip was ? Do you want to know if we saw dauphins, how our trip ended?

Throw Back: Danmark 2015

Hellow there!

Now that I have prepared Corsica, I think back of the awesome time I had in Danmark, the beautiful things I’ve seen, (the easy I had because my parents planned everything) etc.

So I thought why not sharing some pictures of it with you?

 
I loved the Streets there. With those lamps hanging above your head. I loved it!

This was the magical sunset of Roskilde. One of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life. My parents took me there saying it would be magic, that there where no better places to take pictures. Well Indeed, I admitt: it was magic! The sky begins to be first orange, than it changes in pink and finally in a pastel blue/pink palet. The sun also never really falls into the sea. It just disappears at some moment… really something you have to see in your life!

This is Nyhavn, one of the most famous places in Copenhagen (you can also see it in Pitch Perfect 2). I loved the place, we did a little tour on a boat there, really nice but so typical touristic. Haha

 

 … And all those other places, that where beautiful each one of them. that makes that country so exeptional and wonderfull.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Read it: A Work In Progress – Connor Franta

Hey you!

This holidays, when I was in Danmark, I took this beautiful book with me : A Work in Progress of Connor Franta. I bought it before my final exams began but knowing myself and knowing how much I will love it, I put it immediately in my suitcases. I was really excited to read it that I already began in our way to Danmark.

A Work in Progress is an intimate memoir of Connor’s life where he shares his life lessons on his journey from a small-town boy to an Internet sensation. He shares his struggles during his life
with identity, body image, and sexuality in his teen years in a family with four children. He also explains how he decided to pursue his artistic life in his twenties.

In the beginning, it was not really like I expected. I didn’t found it especially funny, I didn’t see the purpose of it. But then, I watched a video of Connor and thought that it would be nicer to read it imagining Connor was reading it. And from then on, I devoured that book in one time. It was amazing, I loved every page of it. It where sometimes hard themes, about sexuality, being an adolescent, and all those harder things. But there was always a joke hidden, a little bit of humor somewhere and that mades it easier to read and easier to think about it. On some themes, this book helped me to make it more clear for me, on other themes, I was suddenly lost (For example: after reading this book I asked myself if it was really a good idea to chose for physiotherapy and if I had not better choosen photography instead of it.) On most of themes, it mostly more clear than not clear, but I think that depends on the person himself.

(picture I took while reading it in Danmark)

Did you read it or do you want to read it ? What do you think of it ?

Movie Time: The Age of Adaline

Hey there!

I finally found how to change my Bio again haha! It’s a better one for the new beginning, now I have to change my background but I have really no idea in which… if you have any suggestion, leave a message!

Okay, now back to the subject: not so long time ago I saw there was a new movie coming out: The Age of Adaline with Blake Lively. First, just looking at the pictures I thought it was going to be an extraordinary movie but reading the resume of it, I found it totaly weird. (But my sister came saying it was so beautiful and that I had to see it. I am grateful to her that she kind of obliged me, otherwise I would have missed that little pearl!)

Adaline, is a a young woman born at the turn of the 20th century, is made ageless after an accident in a night. After a long time of solidarity, she finally met someone who is worth to give up her eternal life.

In the beginning, it tooks a certain time before the story really began but from the begin I was totaly fan of Adaline aka Blake. She is dressed classy all the time, vintage but fashionable. Beside she’s dressed very well, she Always does her hair perfectly! Here there are some of her hairstyles. When she first met Ellis, she seemed to be really sure of herself and playing a hard-to-get, but you realise that she’s just protecting him (and herself). She’s a character everybody would like because of her tenderness and quietness.

 
Ellis, the man who felt in love with Adaline, is a real gentleman like every woman wants to meet one day. I have to admit, I also found him charming and lovely. He’s probable not the most beautiful man but he’s surely an example for men nowadays.
In the end, I found it a touching movie, with a moving story of two loving persons. I loved it!
Have you seen the movie ? Did you like it?

Winter Fun in Brussels!

Hello guys!

So, Saturday the 6th, I was still studying after a week of hard work and examens. My mom said it was maybe a good idea to do something ohter in the evening, that I needed to go outside of my room. So, I went with the whole family to the Winter Fun in Brussels.

It was nice, there was like a lot of lights in trees, on the buildings, …
The christmas market was also nice, there was some originals little shops etc.
The Grand Place had an whole play with lights, with music. (You can see it on the picture of the tower I took).

But damn, that crowd… It is nothing for me, I don’t like being between thousand people, pushed,..

This is the pictures I took, I kind of like them.

What do you think of them?

Love of Lou!
