Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world in my 20s and never stopped until I finally settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 20 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go.In previous lives I was Radio DJ, stage designer in Club Med, had a successful advertising company specializing in logo and website designs and here I am.
I travelled to 40 countries around the globe Tahiti, Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, New Caledonia, Burkina Fasso, Niger, Algeria, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Sahara, Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Australia, blah, blah, blah… so my love for Thailand is based on a long experience of other countries. The 4 countries I always loved most are, in this order: Thailand, Japan, France and Italy, and if you
notice, all are known for their excellent food, because food matters to us a lot (and I mean A LOT). In Thailand, despite the permanent moaning of some negative people, you get the best of all worlds. You want to know what these ‘Best Things’ are? Read this: 10 Reasons Why We Can’t Leave Thailand
To live there? No way ever-ever! But for holiday? anytime! After so many years in Asia, France starts to look exotic but I wouldn’t want to go there for work: I remember why I left and France didn’t get better since (I won’t tell you what it is not to upset French people, but it had to do with French people permanent moaning). Do I feel French? Errr, sorry I don’t; Thailand is still the best place to live in!
Despite all the stories you read or see in the medias, you can live a smooth happy life in Phuket and Bangkok… it’s media’s purpose to highlight bad news, mine is to show you the best of Phuket and Bangkok.
I’m a web director in a travel related company and I build… travel websites! I manage an enthusiastic team of writers, designers and photographers who all share the same passion: travelling and photography.
Canon 7D with 16-24 mm, but frequently Samsung s6 and iPhone 6… It’s not only the camera! 😀
Absolutely NOT! We pay for all our meals, reviews and trips. (but feel free to hint the Tourism Authority of Thailand about it! 😀 )

Phuket Blog is a compilation of 21 years of Phuket exploration in a photo blog for lazy readers and Phuket lovers, just like us. There are no ads, no sponsorship, just real experience! We tried and paid of everything we tried which allows us to keep our real opinions, and we are pretty strict about this. We try to keep positive, if we don’t like a place we tried, we just won’t talk about it.
