Gift ideas to get away from it all at Christmas (as we can)
A road trip in France
The road trip is the big trend of pre-covid travel.Impossible to miss all these fans of combis, vans, 2CV, motorcycles, setting out to conquer the globe in “backpacker” mode.For 63% of French people , the car remains synonymous with freedom (ELABE survey, 2,019), especially when you take the road with your nose to the wind.The pretty book "Road Trips France" allows you to pack up not too far and find inspiration in crisscrossing the small departmental districts of his childhood, through 35 routes crossing the most beautiful landscapes of France.The plus: advice, good addresses and nicely illustrated maps.
Road trips in France, Le Routard (Ed Hachette), € 29.90
A photo escape in the great white
Pure and uncluttered.Here is lactescence on all the pages, which barely disturbs a bestiary of the far north.We discover in this work by Jérémie Villet a whole plethora of wild animals shot in the moment without any cliché being The photographer signs here a work of great poetry and one is happily lost in these white and snowy pages.No text, but an immersive sound creation of 60 minutes accompanies the work to be listened to on firstneige.fr
First snow, by Jérémie Villet, Chêne editions, 40 euros
Camping, quite an art
"Discovering the campsite is not a question of distance.The campsite does not need to scratch, nor to be cold or damp.It can be enjoyed in the warmth and comfort of a new wool blanket" we read over the pages of "Camper around the world".This way of traveling can be done at the end of your garden or in the depths of forests and mountains.No matter the place, camping is a letting go , a state of mind.So in explorations or micro-adventures mode, we clear our minds and we plan to buy a tent (or a hammock).
