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.

Bastille Day Tournament and Party

For this year Bastille Day, the 14th of July, I did work with the French Consulate and the French Olympic Committee to organize a big event at the club which will host the Club France during the Olympics. And what an event it was with a dozen of sports during the day, a huge party at night, 300 adults, 400 kids, several Olympic and Paralympic champions… it was amazing!

Various Sports Events around Rio

Handball, Volley, Football, Basket, Fencing, Surf… I tried to attend a lot of sports events this year and discovered a lot of different arenas.

A couple of days in Itaipu

Itaipu is nice little place on the other side of the bay, after Niteroi, and where there are lots of nice houses close to the beach. And it’s in one of these houses that we spent a great weekend with twenty friends, celebrating the last days of Claire and Laurent in Brazil.

Quick Stop Over in Israel

With less that 75 kms between Amman and Jerusalem I did not resist in the opportunity to extend my stay in Jordan with a quick stop over in Israel. I only spent one night in Jerusalem and one night in Tel Aviv but it was really interesting to visit these two cities.
