new Beginnings

Sedentary life, it takes too long :). We have not been very active lately on the blog and for good reason: in a few months we have hosted several conferences, Thomas found a new job and we moved to the other end of France!

Full of projects!

The title of the article can be misleading: no, we do not expect to leave around the world by bicycle (well, in 10 years). But what are these new beginnings so ? Small balance of our daily lives that is filled with new products in recent months.

First, work hand for Thomas. Yes Grenoble is a city full of opportunities, but not those that appeared during his research have been inconclusive. After two months of intensive research, beautiful disappointment and many questions, he finally found a job that fit him. In early May, he was contacted by a small design office to 8 people, with a top leader in color. It goes on site, on very well and at the end of the interview they asked him to start the following Monday (!).

In short, we go to the west, along the famous Eurovelo 6: Nantes !
Nous ne connaissions pas du tout cette ville, mais notre périple autour du monde nous a fait aimer le changement : chouette, une nouvelle aventure commence ! Nous découvrons la ville depuis 4 semaines maintenant et elle a l’air particulièrement agréable. D’ailleurs, Nantes a été classée 5ème du palmarès des villes du monde les plus “vélo-friendly” et a été Capitale verte de l’Europe en 2013 : comment ne pas s’y sentir bien au retour d’un long voyage à vélo comme le notre ? On vous racontera d’ici quelques temps comment c’est de vivre dans une des villes les plus “vélo-friendly” du monde !

Ce n’est pas tout.

A completely different type of adventure also begins for both - actually really begin in September. An adventure that will be accompanied by a cart, for sure!

Yes, we await the arrival of a baby in the fall!
In short, no cycling holiday this summer but we intend us back there next year - and we are already thinking about where to go!

And it's not over !

Thomas garde en tête l’idée d’un documentaire vidéo, qui sortira en janvier prochain pour le festival CCI à Paris – il faudra juste qu’il apprenne à jongler entre le montage vidéo et les couches 🙂 Si vous voulez rester au courant de l’avancée de la vidéo et faire partie des “early birds” pour la précommande, pensez à vous ajouter à la newsletter (qui n’en finit pas de grossir !). Prochaine campagne Ulule en vue 🙂

Retour en arrière sur ces derniers mois

Ces quelques mois dans le Vercors ont été bien remplis et notre aventure à vélo continue de vivre doucement avec nous. Nous avons animé quelques conférences : One in Correncon-en-Vercors, two in Villard de Lans.

Our exposition photoAfter proudly enthroned in the center of Grenoble to the gallery La Vina, Continued its merry way to "coffee bike"Grenoble then in the library of Villard de Lans. Meanwhile other exhibitions, art prints are still on sale in our shop.

Our book receives many compliments and seems to reach the desired objectives: to travel and especially to discover the bike trip, even encourage people to leave. And you, What have you thought ?

You can find it in several bookstores of travel : Angers (We thank the bookseller who gave us good advice in the creation phase) Nantes, Rennes, Little, Pernes les Fontaines (Near Avignon) Liège (Belgium) and the general library Arthaud in Grenoble. Continue to ask around you if it rained, you are our most faithful allies!

Make this book has been a significant investment but it has brought us a lot: not financially (not ... ahem), but it's a great way to exchange with people and make this "first baby" has been a great experience for us.

Pour finir, quelques images prises le weekend de Pâques – les prémices d’un printemps qui a eu du mal à arriver dans le Vercors à 1100m d’altitude (Thomas a réalisé un igloo le 1er mai, c’est pour dire ! 🙂 )
