The day I decided to be a Superhero

That day was yesterday. I was supposed to be asleep but it was one of those thick and mellow Sunday evenings, drifting into thoughts while common sense requires you to be ready for a fresh week of work: What can I improve in my life? So instead of trying to

500 km to Lavandou

India - 6 days in Kashmir

As soon as we arrived at Srinagar Airport, we understood the region was under high tension. Being welcomed by the army and their machine guns is quite impressive.

India - An Introduction

Namaste! Welcome to India! So I left Cambodia knowing I would meet my very, very good friend Fred at a hotel in New Delhi, and that we would travel 3 weeks around India together. We had the idea of sticking to the North-West area of the country so we could

Japan - Hida-Takayama

Japan - Izumo to Tottori

Laos

One week in Vietnam

We decided to spend only one week in Vietnam to have more time in Laos. The following pictures have been taken in Hanoi, Halong Bay and Sapa mountains in the North. We went for 2 all-inclusive tours as it was more simple to organize. I did not take that

Good-bye Yvonne

My grand-mother Yvone passed away a few days ago. It feels strange to be far from your family in such moment, so I can only share with you the beauty of this World. Good-bye Yvonne... Cherry blossom in Miyajima - Hiroshima

Website is back online!

After 10 days of being down, I managed to somehow put back online my server, with the help of precious friends and the technical support of my hosting company OVH. The dedicated server I use has been hacked more than 10 days ago, it was being used as a platform

Mount Merapi

Let's climb a volcano by night for our last night in Indonesia. Mount Merapi is the most active volcano in Indonesia. The driver seems to like Abba so we will be listening to the whole discography on our way there in crazily curvy roads.   ​That black thing

Music!

Free wifi in a coach from Baguio to Angeles in the Philippines... I must be dreaming! So I publish this track I have made in Australia. This was all done in Ableton Live in a soft post hangover mood. I am preparing a long article on Jogjakarta in Indonesia so

After the first day, we stayed 2 more days in Jimbaran. Then we moved to Sanur, then Ubud and stayed there 3 days. Here are the pictures of these 5 days. Oh and at last I started to upload field recordings! You can download all of them using the

Bali part 1

Selamat malam! Welcome to Bali. First step in Asia and I already love it. People are so nice and always smiling, outstanding landscapes and cheap but excellent food, and a very good way to learn the art of negotiation. Elsa also joined us from freezing France, so now we'

2012

Just a very small update. I am continuing my push bike tour of Tasmania, and rarely find internet so it is difficult for me to update the website.  I am currently in St Helens and I have 3 days to reach Devonport. 

Tasmania and bicycle

I am currently in Hobart, Tasmania. In the airport back in Christchurch I have decided to visit Tasmania by bicycle, touring on the East Coast. That should be around 500 km. This seems to be quite a popular thing to do here. I will go from Hobart to Devonport where
