About me

Hello!

This is Bertille.  I am currently working on a new project involving tourism in Florida and I will let you know more about it very soon!

This is currently a personal blog dedicated to a few topics: Nature, lifestyle,  travel tips & life in Florida.

I learnt Spanish and English during my different expatriations and during my studies as a translator. Even if I am not yet  completely fluent in English, I will try to translate my posts in both languages as much as possible.

 

– Nature –

 

Ecology is a very important topic for me. I am not a scientist, but I am very sensitive on this topic and I read a lot about it. I will share here any thought linked with environmental issues, especially global warming and its effects in our life. We all can do something about it. It seems essential to understand that fact to start acting against it.

Also, I always loved animals, nothing new here. However, since a few years now, there have been a few topics that harshly affect me, so I would like to share them with you. Animals in captivity is one of them, and it will be one of the major topics on this blog. I will talk about people worldwide who are acting to help them being free.

-Lifestyle –

 

I am from those persons who believe that some activities help feeling good.A few of them are especially working well for me: cooking (yeah, I am French, so cliché I know), sport (yoga/tennis/biking… to eliminate a little bit the 1st point, of course), drawing/painting,  and finally reading. I will  refere to some blog posts, books, and also documentaries that are being part of my well-being… they might help you too, who knows?

-Travel tips & Life in Florida –

 

After almost 8 years in North America (Canada – USA),  I know quite well this area.  I lived in Miami Beach for 3 years, and I moved to Hollywood, a city located in Miami’s suburbs, at the end of 2015.  I will tell you a little bit here about my life in Florida. As I love discovering new places, and as  I am a real  travel addict, I also will share my travel tips with you.

OK, I am done for now. It should give you a better idea about the future contents of this blog. I really hope that you would be interesting enough to join me in this new adventure 🙂

See you soon!
