Hello, my name is Eloise. I’m a French woman in my thirties who has spent most of my life living outside of France. I grew up near Paris, but if you ask me where I’m from, I’ll answer Brittany as it’s where my family now lives and where I spent all my holidays as a kid.

At the age of 19, I moved abroad to fulfil my dream of teaching French in England. After 18 months, I returned to France (Rouen, Normandy) to study but continued to seek out opportunities to travel. I completed my work experience semester in Sydney, Australia and my university exchange semester in Turkey. In late 2011, after graduating, I relocated to Sydney for a few years and have called Australia home ever since. I now live in Brisbane.

I love to live adventures, sometimes abroad and often close to home. I have a full-time job, but my weekends are packed with exciting outdoor activities. When I’m not working, you won’t often find me at home. I’m likely to be in a national park or underwater – always with my buddy and partner in life. Our top activities are scuba diving, hiking, sailing and kayaking.

I share my adventures and tips on my blog to help others seize more opportunities to travel. I wished I explored more my own backyard in France before moving to the opposite end of the world!
