Traveling is one of my favorite activities. Since I’m terribly afraid of taking the plane, I go by car. Driving the highway is like meditation for me. The change of landscape, climate, people and language is impressive and inspiring.
I went to France for a while. I’ve been testing for you some supercute French bed & breakfast. Now I’m back, loaded with tons of photos, memories and a French accent. More soon.

Ps: This cute piece of art has been hanging in front of the b&b door, reminding me every day that I should turn into a permanent tourist.

notquitesnowwhite // time out

Finally it’s time for the great escape. Extending the last days of Summer, was the best idea I’ve ever had. My second best idea: … is starting a new career as a permanent tourist. I can’t stop thinking about it.

On my last trip to Paris, I fell in love with Jean Didier Georges. It’s the name of the cozy blue room at the adorable boutique hotel “La Villa 1901″ in Nancy, France. The host Isabelle has turned the former family house into a luxurious hideaway and named the rooms after each of her kids. Love the touch of vintage, the colours and all the little details. So relaxed and sophisticated. Perfect! Argh, I really need to go back there.

I just got back from a short a trip to Krakow, Poland. It was very special and inspiring. This giant wine glass in the shop window impressed me as much as the super relaxed athomsphere in town. Impossible not to fall in love with it.

It’s not a secret anymore. Traveling to France is one of my favorite pleasures in life. Especially when I can spend the nights in a nice cozy place with a great breakfast.

Look what I’ve found on my last trip to Paris. La Villa 1901 in Nancy is definitely one of the top places to stop. It’s a super cool boutique hotel with a cute concept store in the garden. The wonderful host Isabelle has turned this place into a little oasis. Her breakfast is just as amazing as her interior decoration style.

I’m in love with this place. It’s all really inspiring. Soon, I will post more photos of the rooms. If you can’t wait, click on my homepage for more pictures.
