Dolce farniente

Here we go!
Two weeks ahead of us.
We will certainly make the best out of it.

The four of us together in Portugal and Spain.
Visiting family and friends.
Away from home.
Take care!
Be safe!
Be happy!
See you (very) soon!

Paris Orly

Reprise

Paris Orly, vide. Les magasins sont fermés. Le duty free ressemble à un supermarché dans un petit village paumé. Pas de touristes bruyants. Aucun « sans contact » pour le désarroi des commerçants.
L’aéroport attend, mais les avions restent collés au sol. Les affiches sont trilingues, mais à quoi bon de faire l’effort si même les japonais sont absents?
Du jamais vu! Paris est à moi!

Travelling through a picture, a book, a song or a poem
Your friends experiences igniting the fire in your dreams, sending an omen
Travelling and expanding the horizons of the infinite multitudes of mind worldly manifestations
Travelling with your eyes wide open or perfectly closed
Travelling around the world
Or without leaving your place
The imagination has it’s own space
Bridged, connected
No dead-ends or frontiers
Travelling with no luggage at all
Or prepared for an adventure, survival gear, tools
Having the starry sky as a roof
And the soft grass as a bed
Finding ways around financial balances instead
Travelling alone or in good company
By car, by train, by plane, on foot
Or even in a colourful balloon
Travelling from Kenya to Alaska
Crossing mountains, deep seas and valleys
Jungles, forests and desert galleys
Travelling through your sleep
Breath out, breath in
Take the experiences and warp your life from within
Travelling forces you to step out of your comfort zone
Experiencing the real world, leaving behind this world’s addiction to phones
False evidence appearing real, fear
Let it come near
Travelling challenges your comprehension of this world
And once you return you’re no longer the same
Friends to call home and remembering names
Travelling broadens your brain, nourishes your spirit, cherishes your physical
And challenges your conception of this world
Leaving nostalgic photos, the world left in the crevices of your god given body.

Orange dreams

Reprise

I’ve traveled all over the world
I’ve crossed rivers and seas
I’ve climbed high mountains
I’ve slept under the starry sky
I’ve painted bridges and erased walls
I’ve opened windows and doors
I’ve fallen several times
But I’ve never lost the track.

The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.

Dear friends,

Tomorrow I’m going to Portugal for a couple of days. It will be short, but intense.

Saint-Malo – Rennes – Paris – Lisbon

The journey will be long, but definitely worth it. I’ve been counting the days.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t be with my mother, as she is at the hospital again, but she’s always in my thoughts and even in my attitudes because we are so alike!

I won’t carry any luggage, but my heart is full of love and hope.
All I ask is time. I’ll take care of the rest.

I won’t have access to the blog. We’ll catch up when I’ll be back. My priority is my family. I’m sure you’ll undertstand. I have already scheduled some posts. I hope you like them.

Be safe! Be happy!
