Urban Side from Jean-Baptiste Chandelier JB prod I love the first minute of footage as this guy is paragliding over the Miraflores neighborhood in Lima, Peru. I use to see paragliders flying every day when I lived there. If I hadn’t already done it a few times in other places, I would’ve been all over […]
Year after year, Paris continues to be the #1 most visited city in the world. I’ve had the chance to visit Paris twice, and I’ve still barely scratched the surface of what the city has to offer. Everyone’s tastes are different, however I’m confident at least half my picks would make anyone’s top 10 list. So […]
While I did fly into the Bordeaux airport, and eat a few meals in the city, most of my time was spent farther south in the region around Arcachon Bay. I was staying with Sebastien and Magali, a French couple I met on the way to a small eco-hostel called Bulungula. The moment they suggested […]

I purposely bought a small backpack to help limit me in what I brought on the trip.
On this day, Magali working a long shift at the bakery, Sebastien took me around the Bay of Arcachon. Biganos, the town where Magali’s mom lived, was at the southeast edge of the bay. First, we drove southwest to the Dune of Pilat, Europe’s biggest sand dune. Formed during the 18th century, it was […]
In the morning, we ate bread and chocolate pastries for breakfast, before heading off to St. Emilion, the ” wine city”? northeast of Bordeaux which Magali first told me about during our time in South Africa. The district boasts 822 winegrowers and 5,400 hectares of vineyards. According to a tourism brochure, the land owned by […]
