We took a quick little day trip to Killarney for a walk around the lakes. We had moody clouds, stunning views and an amazing late lunch at the Europe Hotel, which overlooked the lakes (last photo). Next town: my favourite – Camp, Ireland.

Dingle and a dolphin

July 30, 2013 Lisa 6

After a couple of days in Dublin, we took the train across the country (a whole 4 hours) to the ring of Kerry on the west coast. I know that Dublin is that capital, but I think that to really appreciate Ireland, you need to explore outside of the city. I stayed at my friend&# …

Dublin, jail and heatwave

July 26, 2013 Lisa 3

Last week I went to see a friend in Ireland and I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for a trip. No really, I had a goofy smile on my face for half the plane ride. I’m not sure what it is about Ireland, but it’s always seemed like this beautiful, my …

Happy Bastille Day!

July 15, 2013 Lisa 6

Happy Bastille Day! This is my first national holiday in France and I had the chance to see not one, but two firework shows this weekend (the other small towns around Grenoble celebrate on the 13th). In Grenoble, the fireworks are held in the main park of the city. It’s …

Smoke and Mirrors

July 13, 2013 Lisa 3

Ok, there were no mirrors in this project, but I couldn’t think of a better title. I was really inspired by the smoke post by Fil Rouge Photo here. Not only are her photos amazing, but she also goes into detail on how to setup the lights and background. It took me quite …

Body painting: Flowers

July 10, 2013 Lisa 0

It’s been ridiculously hot here in the afternoons (followed by rain/thunderstorms in the evening), so I’ve been trying to stay inside and move as little as possible (lizards do that too don’t they?) There’s only so much that you can work on a thesis in …

Colourful Thunderstorm

July 8, 2013 Lisa 2

After another hot day, we had a thunderstorm pass through Grenoble. Luckily, my sixth sense kicked in and I remembered to bring in my laundry five minutes before the rain started. While I was doing that, I noticed just how cool the sky looked and couldn’t resist taking …

Day trip to Annecy

July 7, 2013 Lisa 6

In an effort to keep my sanity in tact while writing my thesis, I’ve been trying to make it a point to get out of the apartment at least once a day. Summer has finally started in Grenoble, which means that instead of complaining how cold it is, we’re all complaini …

Quelque chose de nouveau !

July 6, 2013 Lisa 2

After almost a year in France, I’ve decided that it’s high time that I try to make this blog bilingual (especially since some people that read it are French speakers). So, from now on, I will try to write each post both in English and in French. Obviously, there w …

Seville at night

June 30, 2013 Lisa 0

What I loved about Spain is that everything is shifted by a few hours. Lunch and dinner are eaten later and the streets are bustling at midnight the way they would be at 3pm in most other places. That’s why even though I was walking around alone, I was able to get some …
