Carnet de Voyage 2006

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.
