The Road More Travelled

Annesy, France

At the dawn, a new day blossoms like a colorful and fragrant flower with the arrival of brighter well choreographed life, the carrousel that drives us to the float of rebirth. It  strengths the hopes of road more travelled instilling the flared courage needed to embrace the love that shapes our dreams and allow us to walk with a smile.

Cruising River Saone in Lyon, France

There are two contrasting architectural landscapes that confront us when cruising River Saone in Lyon, France, the modern and the antique. Today, we are just going to sit back, relax and enjoy the modern architecture emerging at the river bank; well, a few of the pictures. I am pretty sure it has changed some more since they were taken two years ago but as an architect buff, I love the building designs and an artist, I love the bright colors, I was at home either way.

Evian’s Christmas Village

Image2514

I was in Geneva, Switzerland when we decided to adventure to Evian, France. It is just across the border, an hour away and why not? I mean, when you hear Evian, you think water and I thought, I drink the water, why not check the city? So, to Evian we went.

I didn’t know what to expect, so it was to my surprise when we came across Le fabliaux village des Flottins. La what?

Le fabliaux village des Flottins occurred from 13th of December 2013 to the 5th of January 2014. It is a free and alternative magical Christmas market, a make believe village filled with exhibitions, street entertainers, art installations, music, shopping and much more. Most of local shops stays open until 8pm. But the most interesting thing for me was the presence of magical creatures that gave birth to an enchanted kingdom, made out of drift wood. They told a story but on that day, I paid attention to the creativity on hand. Imagine how much wood time and imagination went on creating these pieces?! In my heck of the wood, it is just wood but in Evian, it is art. We were so much into it, visiting all of them that we even forgot to visit the site of Evian Water.
