Julie, your Destination Expert

After travelling the world for a long years, it was in Polynesia that my family and me, decided to leave our bags, four years ago.
I am always searching for new adventures. I’m passionate about travel, encounters and new discoveries, and it was here on the island of Tahiti that we found our paradise. If Polynesia is for everyone, synonymous white sand and coconut trees, it also offers so many other things. The warm welcome and kindness of the Polynesians make this place a special place where it is good to recharge. Lovers of hiking, lovers of scuba diving or snorkeling, lovers of culinary discoveries will be seduced.

Looking forward to sharing a moment of this story with you.

Julie speaks French and english.

Martine, your Destination Expert

Arrived in Buenos Aires more than three years ago to improve my Spanish, to know a new continent just with my backpack, I finally decided to live here. I fell in love with this city that never sleeps, the human warmth of its inhabitants, and the man who is today the father of my little one, who is Argentinian. Alone, as a couple or family, this country has something for everyone!

Argentina is a land rich in wonders of nature! From the Atlantic coast with its whales, its penguins, its majestic Iguazu falls, its vineyards sprouting from the deserts through its western landscapes in the North-West, its magical glaciers in Patagonia, its city at the end of the world that is Ushuaia and languorous tango in Buenos Aires, this country will not stop to surprise and I will be more than happy to make you discover it. You will see, to explore it is to love it!

Martine speaks french, english and spanish

Lucie, your Destination Expert

Destination Expert Lucie grew up between Latin America and France, studied architecture in Paris and lived in Japan. But it’s San Francisco that she has been calling home for the past few years. Architectural gem, tech hub and sanctuary of the hippie movement, San Francisco is a very international city. Which is reflected on the wide variety and quality of its restaurants. Are any other reasons to visit San Francisco really needed?! The city is also a great starting point for a roadtrip in California. Lucie loves finding hidden gems around the city and sharing them, so don’t wait any longer, get in touch!

Lucie speaks French, Spanish, English, Italian and some Japanese.
