As you probably noticed, I like going to Japanese places (my passion for the Japanese culture being one big motivation factor) so it comes all natural to share to you my best spots to share a bowl of ramen, this traditional noodle soup that you find everywhere in Japan for no more than £6 (yep, expect to spend a bit more in London!). I've classified them to make it easier for you to choose, and feel free to comment to add to the list! For an authentic taste: Tonkotsu My siste


It's Sunday morning, the weather is rather awful (windy and misty, welcome back London weather!) and I must say that the idea of crossing the whole of London doesn't really appeal to me. But I motivate myself out of bed, and being just 10 minutes late (flooding on the District line, you actually can't blame me!), I arrive in a lovely quiet street where the place I pinned on Google is closed... It's only next to it that this little hidden gem, “Kissawa”, lies. So unpredictabl


Have you ever been in the position where you wished you were that organised parent in the plane who manages their 3 children without a tear during that 8 hour-flight? Or you hoped you brought a bag with essentials to avoid being stressed when you found out your luggage arrived in Paris, Texas instead of the French capital... As you know by now I love travelling but hate flying so it makes sense to me to be comfy and the least stressed as possible... 1. BRING SOMETHING TO READ


Ever since reading Agatha Christie and Her "Murder on the Orient Express" I've always dreamt to cross Europe by rail. The whole idea of boarding in one city and waking up in another always really thrilled me. It came to no surprise that, when I learnt there was a historic train journey crossing Vietnam from North to South, I wanted to test it. However, this was my first overnight train ride and I may have had my head full of clichés. Would reality differ somehow to what I w

Why are all pubs Irish when you go abroad?

This is what I heard a few weeks ago at a dinner party, which made me think: Is it true? ‘Is every time I go abroad all the pubs are Irish?’ As a French who lived in Paris the first 20 years of my life I can tell you it's not a rule there. I remember going to Rue Princesse as a student and go to this pub called "The Frog and Rosbif" (you saw it right) and the concept was pretty much the same as a regular English pub, except the lack of serious cosiness. High stools were the k

New year (kinda), New direction!

For those who’ve been following my adventures, 2017 has been full of surprises and changes. I quit my office job to become freelance and since then I’ve been looking to find the right direction to express myself in order to not have too many compromises in my new routine. The more I was exploring new techniques and ideas, the more it became obvious: I am passionate about maps & travelling and the everything  in between. That’s why I’ve decided to refocus this blog about my tr
