Crete without the crowds

Crete without the crowds

The travel corridor announced mid-October between the UK and Crete allowed for a brief family escape to a Crete without the crowds. It was perfect timing for Sea Sand and Sun ahead of what is shaping up to be a very looong winter. It also gave me a chance to...

California tripping: LA to Palm Springs & Joshua Tree [1/3]

Quaint and Quiet in Prince Edward County, Canada

In another life, I'll be a writer and I will spend weeks and weeks alone on Prince Edward County to write all the novels that crowd my mind. For now, I am still a busy mom unable to put together more than 3 sentences without being interrupted. So I took the...

Sculpture parks: fresh air, art and together time

Autumn is a wonderful time to be outdoor visiting sculpture parks with the children. Think visiting a museum without any of the children complaining that you're actually taking them to a museum. Stretch legs, breathe fresh air, enjoy art all together and...

Road tripping in a 1968 combi VW, solo with 2 kids

My first VW memories date back to the 1970’s. My mother used to own a little white Beetle. She drove it from France to Algeria with me in the back, by way of a ferry ride Marseille-Algiers across the Mediterranean sea. I was 4 years old. In Algeria, I vaguely remember...

North Devon, the detox way at Yeotown

Sometimes, we travel far in search of unspoilt lands and they are right there, on our doorstep. It's hard not be blown away by the natural beauty of North Devon, a region just 2 hours north of London Paddington station, perfect for a hiking / detox trip. I got to...

The 3 valleys without the price tag

The 3 valleys without the price tag

Family ski holidays are nearly always a hassle, and they create a big hole in the wallet. But then, at some point during a stay, you find yourself on the slopes, powdery snow around, blue skies above, rosy cheeks on the children's faces, and all the hard work is...

Life in a treehouse, temple visits optional. Sri Lanka |2|

 Colombo International Airport, March 25th, 4am: we dragged the five of us out of the Sri Lanka Airways plane in the middle of the night, and I thought to myself: what if our driver did not show up. For a second, it was as if our lives depended on him, on someone that...

How I traveled to Syria for my birthday, and loved it

Yes I traveled to Syria last week. Not the broken and abused Syria that we all know from the news but the Syria full of colours, smiles and flavours that once stood proud. That’s right, that's where we all went on Thursday night with a bunch of super girlfriends and...

I wonder what Hemingway would say about Cuba today

Everyone's talking about Cuba these days, and I am thrown 20 years back to when I first visited this special island, and left it with mixed feelings about its future. I was 20 years old back then. During a summer internship in Caracas (that's a whole other blog...

The wife vs. the mother, Bhutan |1|

We're back from a trip in Bhutan, which I really want to document properly on BozAround. It will be mainly through photos as I took sooo many, and they will tell much more about this beautiful country than my own words. Bhutan is roughly the size of Switzerland,...
