Jayana’s Monster

Those who follow our blog know that we carry a monster aboard Jayana. However,  we almost always have incident every time we let loose. Since we own Air Jayana (our drone) to capture aerial views, my ultimate goal was to capture images of the monster in flight. Today, I finally got the pictures I wanted so much, […]

The French Riviera

We would like to present you our most spectacular images taken in the first month we spent in Europe. We revisit our time in Leucate to prepare Jayana for her second year of voyage up to our stay in Cavalaire-sur-Mer, in the St-Tropez region. (sorry for the French version only)

The Galamus Canyon

After leaving our friends in the boat Asfar in Toulouse, Carcassonne was our next stop. I had heard the name a few times, without ever doing research on this city. Our rented house on AirBnB was located at the foot of the castle, so I was able to appreciate the vastness of the site when […]

The location on our blog – how does it works?

One of the most frequently asked questions in relation to our website concerns the map located at the bottom of the home page.

Before dwelling into the technical […]

To return to Europe, the least expensive option available to us was to use our Aeroplan points. As we were within 14 days of departure when booking, we were lucky to get a flight in first class on Lufthansa to make us in France. The opulence of the cabin and the amazing service have completely […]

Visiting the Bri Bri (2/2)

During the night, Sounda was bothered by the smoke emanating from the kitchen on the level below. She did not really slept and was not looking top shape this morning. After tipico breakfast (rice with beans, eggs and plantains), we go to the place of embarkation. After some formalities, we expect other passengers before leaving: a mother […]

Visiting the Bri Bri (1/2)

After Manzanillo, we had booked a stay (the 3rd) in the vicinity of Turrialba. However, I convinced Sounda to cancel our last hotel to allow us to enjoy a few days in the Manzanillo area. We were looking for hotels and almost everything was sold out. We realized that it was Holy Week and a lot of people come […]

The Blue Butterfly

When this film’s production team landed on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, they hired dozens of people, including Manuel and some of his family members. Georges Brossard was technical advisor for the entomological side, including how the main actor would handle a butterfly net. Nevertheless, he had a lot of free time to venture in the […]
