Happy New Year!


A short message to present my greetings for this new year!

I am just back to China after few days off with my family and closed friends. The Hong Kong travel post still needs some updates before publishing it and will be online in the coming days. To enjoy the beginning of this new year, I uploaded some great pictures of HK on my Flickr Page.

Stay tuned and one more time, Happy New Year 2012!

Merry Christmas! 圣诞节快乐!


MOVE – a life travel video


This video was posted one month ago and it already went around the Net several times. It is regurlarly reposted on different social networks (Facebook, Twitter…)

It lets several backpackers thinking about their own travels and gives the idea for others to discover our world…

Enjoy :)

Back from Holidays with some news :)


September is the “back-to-school” month for lot of students but it is also the time to go home for me. After few days off in Europe with my friends and family, I am back in Beijing and continue to update my blog.

You can now access to “flagship” posts from the homepage top navigation bar. Some photos are displayed and are linked to these specific posts. The right navigation bar has also been updated with some new widgets (Twitter, Flickr or Language selector).

As soon as my Macbook is repaired, I will publish new articles and new pictures to present you all my discoveries in this country…. :)

Blog is off for few days…


I will go to Europe until end of August for some holidays so I won’t be able to update the blog. In the same time, I will work in the background to bring some new things. Find below some concrete examples which you will find beginning of September:

  • New design with smooth navigation between posts and categories
  • Visit of the Olympic Park
  • Weekend in Xi’an with the famous Terracotta Warriors site
  • The new ‘Incredible China’ moments
  • ….

See you soon and enjoy the end of Summer time!

New blog design – Frenchmaninasia 2.0


I am currently updating the blog design. You may face some display issues during your visit on my website during the coming days. One known issue is Flickr photostream on the side bar which is currently down.

Everything will be ok next week with a new design. :)

Back to Beijing after one week in France…


A quick post to comment my short travel to France last week… few days in Paris for work and long week-end in Alsace for leisure :)

It was really good to rediscover French gastronomy – the food is and will be the real problem of a French expat in Asia. :( Bread, Cheese, meat and red wine, happiness can be really simple sometimes!

A big thanks to all available friends in middle of July who I met quickly during lunches or dinners. For the others, be sure that you are on my top priority list. Next travel in Europe is planned for August with a marriage in Portugal and some days in French South-west coast.

D-Day – 7


My last week in Paris has just started… I will be in the plane exactly in 7 days to start a new experience in Beijing !

More news on the Chinese wold as soon as I land and find an Internet connexion :).
