My grandmother is the best cook I know and I cannot count the times we have been invited for dinner at my grandparent’s place. I love cooking with her and she definitely gave me the love of cooking. Now that I live far, I always make seeing her a priority when I go back home and that usually includes a delicious lunch or dinner at her…

Truly a dream destination, I have been lucky to go to the Maldives a few times now, on holiday or for layovers. One of the advantages of living in Qatar is that we are not too far away (we’re also lucky to have travel benefits with our airline !). If you look for a hotel on booking.com (my go to for booking hotels), it can be…

My grandparents have travelled the world and my grandma always says that her favorite trip was Petra. I was dreaming to go and it’s only a short flight away from Doha so we went for 3 days in January 2015. I was afraid that we would be cold but the weather was actually perfect and because we hiked we didn’t feel cold at all ! We…

One the perks of this job is obviously the travel opportunities. I’m really lucky that my airline flies to many destinations all around the world. However the best layover is not always in the best place. I strongly believe that the crew makes the layover. With a good crew, you will have a good time anywhere. I have had amazing layovers in not so picturesque destinations…

If you have read my civil wedding post, you already know that our story isn’t conventional. We actually got married with no proposal, and being a romantic soul, I really wanted my “princess proposal”. It’s another story but one of my ex’s actually proposed to me when I was 21 years old, and we were not happy together so that wasn’t in my plans at all…

For our honeymoon we went to New Zealand (see my North Island post here and South Island post here). When I was planning our trip, I realized that Bora Bora was only a 4h30 hours flight away from NZ and we thought it would be the perfect way to finish our honeymoon.   We traveled from Auckland to Tahiti with Air Tahiti Nui and we had…

In April two years ago Pierre and I went on a amazing trip in Tanzania. We started with 5 days in Zanzibar, in a lovely boutique hotel. We relaxed by the pool, went on a few dives and snorkeled in a sea full of colorful starfishes. We also went on a sunset cruise which was so pretty. I would highly recommend our hotel, the infinity pool…

So much has happened since I announced my pregnancy so I thought I’d do a little update 🙂 As I announced on instagram, we are having a baby girl ! I’m really enjoying my pregnancy right now. HOW FAR ALONG : I’m now at 23 weeks which is almost 6 months ! It’s going so fast I can’t believe it. WEIGHT GAIN So far I’ve gained…

Pierre and I met in Qatar in 2012. Everything went very fast and we knew pretty much from the beginning that we had found “the one”. However in Qatar it’s not allowed to live together without being married so after only one and a half year together, we decided to get married ! We chose to do a civil wedding first, and to take more time…
