Malawi: from Liwonde to Lake Malawi [4/4]

We get another opportunity to view wildlife in Liwonde National Park, also managed by African Parks. Arriving at Mvuu Camp by boat, we soon understand that what it lacks in style and intimacy, it makes up in warmth and authenticity. The location is outstanding and I...

Malawi from the top: hiking Mulanje Mountain [1/4]

Malawi from the top: hiking Mulanje Mountain [1/4]

The journey from London takes us via Johannesburg. It is rather long but landing in Blantyre, the economic capital of Malawi, feels familiar. I am reminded of Hararé 20 years ago, with dirt roads in the middle of the city and people walking everywhere. Malawi is a...

15 family-owned secret hotels by the Mediterannean

I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list. I am not a fan of large, group-owned, cookie-cutter hotels in general, but when they're by the sea, I have a physical reaction to them. This blog post is another list of secret places: sweet little family-run hotels...

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

3 NIGHTS IN LOS ANGELES What a cultural shock to arrive straight into the craze of Venice Beach after a long transatlantic flight. We check out the coolios playing basketball and the bodybuilders showing off by the boardwalk. Everything feels like déjà vu - the tall...

Lost Luggages? Try the Unclaimed Baggage store

Oh, only in America, I feel like saying. But maybe there are more initiatives around the world like the Unclaimed Baggage Center in Scottsboro, Alabama?! It's a 40,000sf store selling clothes, suitcases, surfboards, you name it, that they have purchased from the Lost...

A foodie & artsy week-end in Madrid

It's been 20 years since I've last set foot in Madrid. When you hold super dear memories of a place, it's often hard to revisit it. As if that little corner in my heart - the Madrid of my twenties, when I was an exchange student - should not be altered by any grown-up...

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,...
