Merci 2017

Another year, more experience and a good dose of nature & culture.

Grateful for having…

…dipped in the soothing waters of St. Jean de Luz.

…sipped the most delicious glass of Vouvray in Biarritz.

…hiked along the Pacific Ocean, the Bay of Biscay, the Minas Basin & Golfe de Gascogne.

…biked leisurely along the St-Laurence river, Lac St-Louis and all around l’Isle-aux-Coudres.

…spotted humpback whales with a group of wildlife enthusiasts in San Francisco Bay.

…curled up by the fire in a lovely St-Irénée farmhouse.

…gazed meditatively as surfers catched waves off the Boulevard du Prince de Galle.

…scavenged the marché Aligre with a dear Parisian friend.

…inhaled the aroma of eucalyptus trees in the Presidio.

…plunged in a refreshing natural pool in Triple Buckets, Richmond.

…basked in the sun on cross country skis by the Ottawa river and on top of Mount-Royal.

…explored burgeoning local activity in Wolfville.

...watched 2017 #1 tennis champion play in the flesh while listening to roaring crowds cheer on rising Canadian star next court.

and the list could go on....

Bring on the good vibes and the right mix for 2018!

Thinking of hiking in the desert near Palm Springs, setting camp at Big Sur, bike riding in the Vallée de la Loire, wine tasting in the Douro Valley and practicing yin yoga on an Island in Greece. Otherwise, dreaming to return to Cornwall England to walk the magical path from St Ives to Zennor. Have always wanted to go to Miami during Art Basel and very due to go back to my second home to visit the MOMA, the rooftop at the Met and maybe hit a garden party at the Cooper Hewitt, National Design Museum. Need to explore more of London’s Broadway Market & visit the Kew gardens. Would not mind cross country skiing in Saint-Moritz or taking a boardwalk stroll in Tel Aviv. Closer to home, need to check that road trip to Rhode Island off my list, learn more about my roots on Fogo island and start my microgreens practice. What about you?

Health, Love, Peace, Kindness & Happy Travels,

Claudine
