Few Premises . . .

You are so lucky . . .


Since I announced that I am going to do a World Tour, I have heard this little phrase many times . Oh, you are soooo lucky . . . Quelle chance! Collons, quina sort . . .

Who, me? Why? I have not won the lottery. I don’t have super powers. No fairy godmother has touched me with her wand either.

Do you really think that gook LUCK comes like this? You born lucky? Or one day, when you wake up, you realize (or others do it for you) that you are lucky?

For those that think that I am lucky: do you know by chance how many (short term, hopefully!) renunciations meant this one single choice?

No, I AM NOT A LUCKY GIRL. I am just a dreamer that one day decided to put a precise date to my World Tour dream 😉



Playing with the Antipodes


Box populi may expect a JAMES COOK or NOTHING from me, a blog full of stories of great explorations, challenges and new discoveries.

A World Tour must include all continents and of course at a certain point I must reach Australia or, even better, play Gauguin on some far-away exotic island.

Let me use these first lines to reassure my mum : all I want is a quiet, and safe long trip where my only worries may be where I will sleep tonight or what to visit today. I want to have time for myself, develop a little bit more my passion for photography, trek the finest paths but most of all I want to share good moments with my friends (the old ones and new friends met on the road) around the world.

Am I going to the Antipodes? NO. Well, at least I am not going to the Antipodes of Paris. But maybe I am going to the Antipodes of Singapore . . who knows?

Play with Antipodes, find the other side of the world.



Isn’t it dangerous?


If you think

adventure is dangerous

try routine.

It is lethal . .

And you?


Yes, YOU. Because you don’t expect me to do all the job here, right? This is a blog for SHARING. I will be out of Paris and Barcelona for one year but that does not mean that I will disappear from the world , I will be just turning around it.

Through this blog I will give you news from me and my trips and I really would like to have news from you, through comments on my posts or by email at elisa.mkt1 at yahoo dot com. This blog is also made to keep contact with my friends and family while I am away.

You know where I am right now (yes, it is on the top of this page, on the right). Have you been there already? Do you have some tips or recommendations for me? A fantastic friend that I must meet, maybe with some free time to show me around? Any input from you will be most welcome!

Do you have some days off and don’t know what to do? Do you want to share a little bit of this World Tour with me? You can see the countries that I am visiting and some dates on the WT Itinerary page, let’s talk about it!
