If, like me, you are in love with Southeast Asia and sometimes spend hours on the web looking for blogs and pictures of other travelers, you may know Yann Senant's website, Roving Impressions. He puts his road bookswith photos and videos. A site nicely subtitled "The extraordinary adventures of an ordinary family".
I do not personally know Yann, but we share the same philosophy of travel, the same Asian destinations. And we meet from time to time on the web, according to the forum of travelers.
With his children Morgann and Loïck and his wife Isabelle, he wanders with his family, backpack, around the world. His stories transport you instantly to the other side of the planet.
I have (finally) registered on the Tashi Delek forum, dedicated to Southeast Asia, that he launched.
And I'm hurrying to advertise his 2009 calendars, before the end of January: twelve superb photos, for 20€ (pictures of Yann himself and of Pierre Poillouxanother Asia enthusiast with whom I also had the pleasure of conversing by e-mail).
It's for a good cause, since the profits will be used to finance the projects of the small humanitarian association Helping you in Southeast Asiaof which Yann is one of the co-founders.
Here it is. I've been wanting to talk about it here for a long time, and to thank this family of globetrotters for sharing their fabulous wanderings with us. It's done!
In conclusion, I give the floor to Yann, Isabelle, Morgann and Loïck:
"We travel with our children to teach them to open their eyes, to be enthusiastic about small pleasures; to live, to be aware of their luck while respecting the difference.
The world is world only if it is world. The world is only a world if it is plural.
Difference. Wealth. Simplicity. Wonder.
Impressions Vagabondes is a travel memory. For us, for our children, for you but above all a consideration for all those who have received us, helped, loved.
Benevolence, smiles, humanity, generosity. How to forget.
Welcome to Vagabond Impressions."
