Paris - Nantes - Paris (Carnet de Voyage 2007)

June 2007




Sergey is not only my best friend, he’s also the best fellow traveller one might dream of.
Once a year Sergey takes a very long trip from Western Siberia, to join me for a holiday week, which has become our private ritual.
This gallery doesn't mean to be only a series or more or less average pictures;
it has someway more ambitious (or more private) intentions.
It will try to be a kind of diary of our last trip, concentrating in word and images all what we have shared and helping us to wait serenely for another year,before enjoying a similar wonderful experience once again.

It starts always from here...
