I am Laurène, a 35 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 work full-time on my two blogs. I also opened a homestay in my large alsatian house near Strasbourg.
