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…

Everyone thinks that Hawaii is really far from everything, and well it is, but it’s so worth the long trip ! Living in Qatar, it was quicker to go via Asia (we went via Seoul) but from Europe the best option is via Los Angeles. Hawaii is composed of 8 islands, so with 10 days there, we decided to visit 2 of them. Flying into Hawaii,…

New Zealand is such a photogenic country and we loved filming during our trip. It takes a bit of planning and work but I think the results are so worth it. We filmed with the Gopro 6 and the Karma grip (best investment ever, no more shaky videos !) and the Karma drone which we love. See the posts about our trip here : the North…
