I am Laurène, a 32 year old girl originally from Brittany. After many years in Paris, I lived in Switzerland and then moved to Alsace in September 2014.

Alsace was never a random choice: with varied and splendid landscapes, beautiful towns, economic dynamism, a geographic location in the heart of Europe, food and so on… the numerous assets of Alsace definitely appealed to me and my husband.

I have actually fallen in love with my adopted region since I have settled there and  I never get tired of visiting and admiring the region.

After living in Colmar an Strasbourg, I have settled in a small village called Quatzenheim, 15km away from Strasbourg.

I started blogging in 2011 with my French travel blog Carnet d’escapades. Having caught the blogging bug, I never stopped and decided to create in 2015, a second blog, entirely dedicated to Alsace: My weekend in Alsace.

Former tax specialist, I have decided to change direction in 2015 and to devote myself entirely to my two blogs, as well as to activities of freelance web writing and community management in the field of tourism.

I like

  • Discovering new places and finding good addresses
  • Being in the nature, on foot or on the back of my horse

I don’t like

  • Remaining idle. A full day at the beach is almost unthinkable!
  • People lacking enthusiasm. There are too many beautiful things to be jaded!
