Daily magic: Today I want to share with you a traveling memory. This unimpressive photo, shot in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Bruges, is for me symbolic of a magical moment, of an emotion, that only travelers can understand. The photo is taken from my table during breakfast in the intimate dining room of the Cavalier Hotel in Bruges. I, who always travel on a tight budget, had decided this time to treat myself for a night in a charming little hotel. That morning, the weather is nice, a bright day where I will wander endlessly in the "Venice of the North". I am sitting in front of a tasty breakfast, surrounded by a hushed atmosphere, because I am lucky enough to be the only one in the dining room. How quiet it is! One of those moments when you savor every crumb of joy that flows into your heart, because it is simply perfect to exist, to be free, there, in this sublime city. A day just for you. The pleasure of being totally incognito. Nobody knows my name, my life. The pleasure of knowing that today I'm going to visit one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, that I will walk around with a camera that will be filled with beauty and unique treasures that I don't know anything about yet. Everything is possible! Happiness enters my heart and I tell myself that I'm the luckiest person in the world. The excitement of the first morning in a city to discover is something that cannot be described, it is an intimate and sublime experience to live!
