If traveling was free… bye !

“When in doubt, book that ticket and go”

If traveling was free... bye !
En route for Las Vegas !

I have a love-hate relationship with this city. I mean it’s an odd place, everything seems grandiose and completely unbelievable because we’re in the middle of the desert… the air is dry, and the heat is crushing.

But at the same time, you’ve got all that luxury before your eyes. They say it’s America’s favorite playground, and I do have to agree on that. The sentence “anything is possible” makes sense there, whatever you’re searching for, you might find it. It’s not like L.A. where people come with their dreams, here it’s all about having a good time without considering consequences.

Which is why I do not like the general ambience there. I just find it fascinating, it’s like a trip down the rabbit hole, where you get to see all the curiosities hidden from wonderland.

I followed my heart and it lead me to the airport.

“When you put love out in the world, it travels”

I followed my heart and it lead me to the airport.
Back to my Californian hometown… Redondo Beach ! 

I consider the South Bay area to be the best in Los Angeles, not only because of the amazing beaches, but also the chill vibes and beautiful houses.

When I first arrived in L.A. in 2012 (oh boy, that’s a long time ago !) I had no clue this place would be so pretty. I totally fell in love, and it obviously broke my heart when I moved to Paris. Time away has become an eternity…

I had been waiting for too long to be reunited with my best friend Noah again; I don’t know which one of us is crazier – probably me, but I do know we complete each other’s silliness. & I missed that, so much.

We spent such a great afternoon together, my sister was there as well. We chatted, and laughed and I just felt like myself again. It was like, I hadn’t been myself since I had gone. This trip completely restored me.

Sunsets are proof that endings can be beautiful too.

Who would have thought LA was so cold in March…

Sunsets are proof that endings can be beautiful too.
After crossing an entire ocean, and a continent… we finally arrived in beautiful, sunny Los Angeles. Where it was freakishly cold. Or were we too sleep-deprived to feel any warmth, I don’t know.

What I do know is that :
– There were no Uber answering from LAX, thanks to their slow wifi.
– I had forgotten to refill my T-Mobile account so I couldn’t use data to move away from the airport and eventually get an Uber to drive us home.
– That we didn’t have any change for at least taking a bus away from LAX, because we hadn’t thought this through…
– We did finally find an ATM and someone who accepted to change a 10$ bill.
– Somehow we managed to miss our bus, so we had to wait almost an hour for the next one…
– Finally, after 15hours or more of crazy travel, we were home-ish… except the apartment I used to stay at, was now the house next door. We didn’t even have the right address, oh well.

After those insanities, we decided sleep would be our best ally – the next morning was a total breakfast binge at Denny’s ! Welcome to America !

If kisses were stars, I would give you the sky.

“I smiled. We were under the same sky at least.”

If kisses were stars, I would give you the sky.
We flew back to Los Angeles from Paris, with my sister… so many feelings & memories came through. Last time we went together it was crazy and wild, we had awesome little adventures and many what the heck moments.

I couldn’t shake the happiness in my heart because we waited for this trip for such a long time. I didn’t know what to expect, but I was delighted to find out.

Au revoir Zürich !

and see you soon…
Au revoir Zürich !

I had a wonderful extended four-days weekend in Zurich visiting my best friend, the weather was quite nice half of the time which gave me the opportunity to walk around the city (something I love doing on all my trips) and take pictures. I’m sad to leave, but I’ll be back soon enough 😉

Art in the city

The mandatory pit stop
Art in the city

Zurich is a very artsy city, it’s agreeable to walk and see awesome graffitis on the walls and enter cool museums exhibiting modern artworks. It’s also become a gluten-free friendly place where you can find restaurants making delicious dishes, such as the amazing burger I got at B.GOOD.

Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can

First photoshoot together
Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can

I must have taken a million pictures that day… beginnings are always challenging because you have to adjust to these little things you’ve not been used to yet. Which is probably why I shot so many photos that day, I was trying to learn how to represent my model in her best light, just as she was trying to find the right poses for the camera etc.
