About me

Nice to meet you!

Hi there! Welcome to my travel diaries. My name is Gaëlle, I am the author of this site and a globe trotter from Annecy. I have traveled to more than 70 countries and it’s on this site that I share my passions: adventure, photography and travel.

It was at Pointe à Pitre airport in Guadeloupe that I took my first steps: my parents have always loved traveling and gave me the bug. After studying my BA in Germany, worked a year in Australia, I moved to Japan.


I was recruited by ANA, All Nippon Airways to work as a cabin crew. In Japan, learned to evacuate a plane in Japanese and the art of ‘Omotenashi’ (the art of Japanese hospitality). I enjoyed discovering this beautiful country: spring in Kyoto under cherry blossoms, winter skiing on a volcano in Niseko or fall in Kansai.


After almost 3 years in Japan, I settled in London and studied a Master. I took advantage of the university holidays to keep traveling: surf in Hawaii, motorcycle in Bali, canyoning in Jordan and temples of Burma …

My journey is has many little stories and anecdotes. I approach life like my travels, without planning too much. Because if I learned something during my travels, is that things don’t turn as expected!
