I might...
Well, this entry might trigger some questions on my mind about my reasons for travelling, but what I am sure is that regardless the reason, everytime I travel, I feel free and when I go back to the place I travelled from, I have new thoughts and unconsciously make some changes in my projects. Thanks for taking me to Sophie's World :) Nice

il est tard et j'ai envie de parler...
Oui, moi aussi je me suis souvent demandé pourquoi je ressentais tant le besoin de voyager, tout le temps. Dès que je rentre, après quelque temps je ne tiens plus en place, je pense déjà à la prochaine destination. Je ne viens pas d'une petite ville. Je suis née à Paris et j'ai grandi en très proche banlieue parisienne. Et pourtant, j'ai le sentiment que Paris est trop petite pour moi. Trop vieille. Trop statique. Il manque quelque chose ici. Je ne sais toujours pas quoi, mais je sais que ce n'est pas ici. Je crois qu''en fait c'est un moyen de s'enfuir. Parce que si c'est tout ce qu''il y a, grandir, travailler, acheter une maison, si la vie se limite vraiment à ça, ce serait insupportable. Il doit y avoir autre chose. Je crois que c'est ça qu''on cherche quand on voyage. On veut comprendre ce qu'est cet autre chose qui nous manque. Mais j'ai aussi l'impression qu''à force de voyager, on se perd. Comme tu le dis, parfois quand les gens vous demandent d'où vous venez, vous ne savez plus quoi répondre. Où est ma maison? Où est ce que je me sens chez moi? Est ce que c'est un endroit? Ou un état d'esprit? Parfois j'ai le sentiment de n'être moi même que quand je suis loin de la maison. Peut être que c'est parce les gens me rappellent constamment, consciemment ou pas, que je n'ai pas l'air française, que je viens d'ailleurs. Alors qu'en fait, c'est en France que j'ai grandi. Du coup maintenant quand on me demande d'où je viens, je ne réponds plus. J'évite. Je ne sais pas d'où je viens, je ne sais pas où je vais, mais je suis sûre d'une chose: c'est ailleurs.

Je suis tout a fait d'accord! I could write pages after pages about that subject.

Intéressant et bien écrit
Nicolas, from your 2009 blog "I m sorry I dont speak English" to this one, your command of our sometimes stupid English language has continually improved - as has your command of the camera! An interesting piece of writing and great photos. Garde le sourire!

The funny thing about that is that I spent my entire life in an english school and my dad don't speak any other language. My very early blogs were a joke. I didn't care about them and was just posting pictures to make some people happy back home, but thanks mate. Appreciate.
