Point Zéro

Before flying to China, I had spent a couple of weekends walking around Brussels just to feel one more time its unique and warmful atmosphere... Whatever some might think about Brussels, there is always something happening in the city, a coffee to share with a friend, a Brusseleer picturesque scene to light upon, a nice walk to have around (par tout temps, since in my opinion  Brussels is not tailored for sunshine... Ooh yes, I firmly believe that its beauty and authenticity are sharpened by clouds and greyish days...but OK, ca... [Lire la suite]

Ticket to ride

The one-way ticket to Beijing was booked today. The departure is for December 1 at noon.

Live your dream, don't dream your life (the recurrent Backpacker's quote)

How ironic life is... I had created this blog a few months ago, in preparation of my trip on the Transsiberian/Transmongolian, trip envisaged of course with the sole purpose of getting plastered on the Baikal Lake sur fond de Balalaïka. Sadly enough, I had to renounce, having taken the very wise decision to banish myself in wonderful Luxembourg for 2 years in ze crazy busy shiny city. Ne prenez pas le pipi [don't you even dare taking the piss], I acknowledge my mistake, although I had been exhaustively warned against potential... [Lire la suite]
