Sedentary life takes too long :). We haven't been very active lately on the blog and for good reason: in a few months we hosted several conferences, Thomas found a new job and we moved to the other end of France!
For the past month, we have been working hard: things happened in January in our daily life as returning World Tourists.
Nous voilà revenu dans la vie sédentaire, la vie normale – je n’aime pas dire la “vie réelle” comme on l’entend parfois, parce que pour le coup, nous y avons été confronté à la réalité de notre planète, lors de notre voyage…
