The world of Pokemon – (Pictures taken from my trip to the ancient village of “Collonge-La-Rouge” in the province of Limousin.

Au-delà de l’imagination – comment puis-je le décrire autrement! “Nice” la ville de l’amour regardait son humanité saigné comme ils sont tombés au sol le 15 Juillet 2016. Je ne peux toujours pas comprendre pourquoi.

France, Nice et Paris, ensemble nous seront forts et seront toujours vous aimer.  

Que vous allez tous reposer en paix!

I will continue to write about beautiful France and the beauty it offers to the outside world.

France, Nice and Paris, together we will be strong and will always love you!

Rest In Peace Lovelies!

I Spent Time by the Lake of “Saint Germain Les Belles”

DSC_0139This year 2016, I chose the month of June for my summer holiday away from home.  When my daughter was still at primary and secondary school age, I waited for summer school breaks to go away with her.  Since she has now grown up into a young adult, I prefer to take my summer break before the end of school days.  I like to spend time when there is peace and tranquility.  I think I have done my days like all mums, being away with kids are great years to cherish, remembering the noises of our kids and their friends.  But then one day comes the time that we can do it alone in the tranquil and peaceful pace of time.

Every Holiday Has a Story to Tell!

In The Province Of Limousin In France

  THE VILLAGE OF “COLLONGE-LA-ROUGE” – (Part One)

At the beginning of June I took a 20 days holiday to the Province of Limousin in France.

005 IMG_0254.JPG

It’s been my dream to one day tour the province and visit all the beautiful spots that Limousin offers.  I suggested to my friend that one day I would like to visit the Village of “Collonge-la Rouge.”  Then he replied to me, “Why Collonge-la Rouge?”  The reason he asked me that question was because when he was very young, he’d visited the Collonge-La-Rouge only once, and at that time, it was only a normal historic village and nothing more of what I wanted to see today.

“Our Forefather’s Heritage” and the “Latter-Day Mode de Vie”

Men have traveled a long journey to arrive where they are today.  Let us go way back to the centuries of our forefathers.  Most of them lived on farming and on the farms several generations lived together, and they did not have much to live on like we have today.  In modern living, most of us live in our own home and we can afford many things that can satisfy our family life.  We still have farmings as a way of life or we can call it a profession in today’s society that we embrace.  And actually many of us in one family alone can grow with good education and place ourselves in professional activities within the modern society which our ancestors and their children may not have had that great chance to abide.
