The most in the world!

After visiting many of the most beautiful places around the world, you may excuse that my standards have reached higher levels and by now, i barely go anywhere unless it's at least the most something in the world...

Here for example, just this morning, a train took me on the southern outskirts of Paris to a fascinating grey building, packed with grey corridors along which are aligned dozens of absolutely identical grey offices containing grey computers... judging by how packed the train was with people eager to get there, i was already sensing this was going to be special, but there i was now and i couldn't help thinking : this got to be the most boring place in the world!

And the good thing is that i'm now going to have heaps of time to explore and appreciate this new -and yet so familiar- environment of mine!

More seriously, the most scary thing of all is how quickly i got thrown back to my parisian life, finding everything unchanged exactly as i left it a year ago, and honestly, if it wasn't for this blog, i would doubt myself that i ever travelled anywhere and that it wasn't just one big fantastic dream!

you may have note dream your trip but you did make us dream thanks to your blog, your beautiful pictures and your stories. Thanks a lot!
And actually, I agree with you, this marvellous white corridor is far less attractive than all theses exotic landscapes...

this blog makes me recall a comment posted in you second favourite one...

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, unremembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;

-T.S Eliot
