Different walks.
Different time.
Different views.
Yet the same colour, blue.

I hope you enjoy the coastal walk too.

Simply Everyday

I’ve watched and much appreciated this talk.

Gavin Pretor-Pinney reminds us that you don’t need to plan an exotic trip to find creative inspiration. It may be true yet it’s easy to overlook what surrounds us everyday…

On s’étonne trop de ce qu’on voit rarement et pas assez de ce qu’on voit tous les jours* -Mme De Genlis.

So I end this week with a series of shots from our daily strolls and I wish you all a great week-end !

Mulled Cider

Paprika and I are eagerly awaiting the delivery of our stuff. It’s like we have lived out of a suitcase for a month now and we look forward to making our new place feel like a home.

The current situation made me think about this notion of comfort strongly associated with the one of home.

It reminded me that winter night in Wellington, and how we felt cosy inside while sipping the mulled cider I had prepared. Dinner was slowly cooking and the warm and aromatic beverage was our apéro that evening.

If like me, you appreciate wine and spices, but have never been a fan of mulled wine, this cider version, somehow lighter, is worth trying.
