From the River to the Ocean…

It seems to be the case that, on entering a city after being on the road for days, we constantly feel out of touch with reality and feel that we could just never belong in this world of commuters, people buying new clothes and laughing with friends on restaurant patios over bottles of wine.

Adventures in Nantes

On the day of our departure from L’Atelier des Bons Plants, we woke to sun, which was further heightened by the glow of our caravan’s orange walls. Nonetheless, it was with heavy hearts that we extricated ourselves from our den of blankets, packed up, had breakfast and left our new-found home. Theo and Loire had […]

The Good Plant Workshop

It was tough leaving the Canal de Nantes à Brest. There’s something about that ride: long stretches of flat pathway, riparian scenery, forests and castles and cyclists. It was hard to make the decision to leave, but we knew that at some point we would have to upend the predictable traffic-free route and return to […]

Adventures with the Elements in Canggu

The bustle and crazy traffic (there are ALWAYS traffic jams on these streets, no matter what time of day you choose to travel) is constant, all the way out of Kuta to Canggu. As soon as you start to see the rice paddies, you know you are close. I was longing for some peace and […]

Kuta Me Krazy

The journey there was an exhausting one, but we were back on Bali and right in the middle of the action. Kuta, Bali is the surfing and resort area directly north of the airport. When you look into staying in this area you have a choice of three very distinct spots: Kuta, Legian and Seminyak. […]
