I am often asked what is the country I liked the most, but for me, it’s not the place that I like, but the trip itself : when, who was with me, in which state of mind… For example, I have been several times to New York, and I lived it in a totally different way depending on the trips.
Every time I am asked this question, depending on my mood, I give a different answer. Most of my trips are for me magic and unique adventures.
But for me, often, the most important is not where I go but who I go with. Sometimes, when my Parisian life become too crazy, too intense, I leave to be disconnected, and recentre on myself, define what I really want.
I asked you what was your best trip in my last article and I received several nice replies in comments. Then I asked a few friends of mine what was their best trip and why. And they told me a few beautiful stories !
Soraya Khireddine : « the Sinai with Joseph because it wasn’t expected and it was magic ! Not expected, not awaited, exotic, Joseph is a great travel partner and the environment of the Med Sinai Bay Club is fairy ! A little place in the middle of the desert, the red sea and the desert… Paradise ! »
Sidoine : « My best trip was on stage with my audience 🙂 I loved the wild side of Martinique.
Cédric Deniaud : « South Africa, last year, for the diversity of the landscapes and the recent weight of History »
Geoffrey Dorne : « For me, my best trip was in Rome for the new year with my girlfriend. A stolen moment (we work a lot), surprising, what a crazy idea to visit Rome in 4 days in winter. Actually, it was a parenthesis in time and space. »
Alexandre alias Tuxboard : « Croatia, a rush with no reservation with a very good friend, an adventure, in contact with the local people, Into The Wild style. Magnificent beaches, very rich culturally with crazy landscapes and awesome nights… In short, great holidays ! »
Alex Greenwich : « Hyams Beach in Jervis Bay National Park, white sand beach and very bad mobile phone coverage »
Alex Goude : « Ouh laaaaa I made a lot but I’d say the American West for the immensity and the diversity of the landscapes, it’s so inspiring, and when you’re facing a sequoia you feel so small you realise how immense the world. »
Ben Mazué : « Ahlala I don’t know I have a lot of favourite ones, but I think that the best of the bests was Florida with my sisters and my parents for Christmas 96. We won 5 tickets for Miami at a lottery. But we we were broke, so my mother turned the tickets into charter tickets and with the difference we rented a car. Road trip in family, broke, in Florida, at Christmas, eating Taco Bells and sleeping all 5 in micro rooms of crappy Motels. I don’t know if I had as much fun since then. »
Marjorie Le Noan : « Los Angeles, especially for the hikes I made on the Hills or the sailing at Marina Del Rey, and the sunsets which have a unique colour. And the old L.A style that we find everywhere, the spirit of the big Hollywood stars etc… And the road-trips that you can have all around. »
