Last November I travelled to the US, and went back to New York, 6 years after I left to finish my degree in London.

It was actually kind of nice to be here as a tourist this time, and we did it all ! Central park, St John's the Divine cathedral, the Guggenheim, the Met...

Then Vienna with its huge and heavily decorated buildings from the Imperial time of the city.

With the unforgettable Habsburg dynasty, and its legendary princess Sissi.

Next capital city was Praha with its castle famous for... having witnessed many defenestrations !

Little report on my European roadtrip, especially in the Balkans: Switzerland, North of Italy (Como lake), Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany.

balkans-2.jpg

 

 

Arrival in Croatia, with the Plitvice lakes... 

 

balkans-3-copie-2.jpg

 

 

 

Then in Dubrovnik, where a big part of the next season of Game of Thrones will be shot.

 

balkans-4-copie-1.jpg

 

balkans-5.jpg

 

 

 And the impressive "China's Great Wall" of Ston.

 

balkans-6.jpg

 

 

The Korcula island, with a city shaped as a bell, whose arteries are straight on one side and curved on the other, to optimise wind circulation and protect the architecture.

The Krka national park, thought of as Plitvice's rival.

balkans-9-copie-2.jpg

 

 

And finally gorgeous Zadar with its sea organ.

Here are the sketches of our lastest escapade... this time in Portugal, more precisely in Lisbon, where the weather was far nicer than in Paris !

 

lisbon-1.jpg

 

 

The castle, which brought us to other times...


lisbon-2.jpg

 

 

The weird monument celebrating the Discoveries, in other words a block out of concrete... And the very symbol of Belem, its great Tower. 


lisbon-3-copie-1.jpg

 

lisbon-4.jpg

 

 

And according to me the highlight of this city, the church of St Roch. It overflows with treasures, amongst others mosaics so incredibly subtle you would think they are paintings.

I have decided to start a business of creation/customization of children's Tshirts to supply my nephews and nieces, who are constantly having new birthdays! Here is an example with my nephew: this cheeky one has to put a coin in a piggy bank everytime he blames it on his big sister...

Here is the last print to date, custom-made for my friend Perceval of what-Percevalties-thinks.

Just outside of a launch at the Cité de la Mode et du Design in Paris, we passed by the windows of a lecture room. The slide which was on the screen at that very moment was of a shark swimming in open water with the legend "Les bloggueurs sont des requins", bloggers are sharks. I just had to do something with this !

And he made me the honour of wearing our private joke T-shirt to the Prix d'Excellence de la Mode Marie Claire party.

Last but not least country of the trip, Vietnam has wowed me, from Ho Chi Minh City to the gorgeous Halong Bay.

 

First of all, the visit of the Cu Chi tunnels, highly symbolic of the war in Vietnam.

 

19.jpg

 

 

And the extraordinary scuba diving experience... for once, I'll admit it, my sketches are not made on site ! 

 

20.jpg

 

21.jpg

 

 

Then the beautiful Hoi An, city of a thousand tailors...


22.jpg

 

 

And the My Son worshipping complex, which original building techniques allowed to survive through time... 

 

23.jpg

 

 

Then, the imperial Citadel of Hue, former capital city of Vietnam.

 

24.jpg

 

25.jpg

 

 

And finally Hanoi and its surroundings, from the literature temple to the Perfumed Pagoda.

The highlight of this trip was arguably the visit of the Angkor temples in Cambodia. 


13.jpg

 

 

Especially the incredible Bayon temple, sculpted with over two hundred faces...

And the major Angkor Wat...
