My Photos

The following is the list of photos I've taken during the last couple of years. They correspond to trips and visits in the different countries I've been living in as well as holidays and weekends spent overseas. They also correspond to days, weekends or weeks focused on a particular event rather that the visit of a new place.

A couple of days in Salvador

Host of the game France vs Switzerland during the World Cup, Salvador was also having a great festival when I was there: the festival of São João da Bahia. A very nice and colourful event in the heart of Salvador’s old town, probably my favourite city in Brazil after Rio.

A couple of days in Porto Alegre

Having tickets for all the games of the French team during the World Cup I went to Porto Alegre for a couple of days and had the opportunity to have a quick look around the city. Very different from the other cities I have been to in Brazil so far.

Football World Cup around Brazil

After many Handball events and Olympics I have to say that the Football World Cup is a whole different dimension. Especially in Brazil with thousands of South Americans supporters who drove or flew here for the event. Really crazy!

A couple of days in Ethiopia

Flying back to the Brazil just before the World Cup I had the opportunity to stop six days in Ethiopia and had a great tour of Addis Abeba, Lalibella, Gondar and Bahar Dar on the Lake Tana. My first visit to Eastern Africa and once again a very nice experience.

First Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro

Just arrived in Brazil a week ago and it’s already the carnaval. Probably one of the craziest festival around the world and a great way to get started in my new country. The photos aren’t that great but I’ll take some more next year.
