Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia / Oulan-Bator, Mongolie

16/01/2016: I’m going out of the plane and enjoy my first steps in Mongolia. All my plans, everything I read in guides and Internet is becoming reality, it is a crazy feeling!

Perpignan, Nîmes

01/12/2015: after landing in Carcassonne, I went directly to Perpignan to visit one side of my family. In Thuir, to be precise.
