This vacation week in Jura passed by quite quickly, too quickly if you ask me. There are so many beautiful places left to discover and we will definitely be back to continue our exploration.
During this week we had the chance to hike in stunning landscapes and chill out in the cutest and most authentic French villages. That is why I wanted to share with you the five places I preferred the most.
Do not miss them! Read more
We spent the afternoon visiting the cute little village of Baumes-Les-Messieurs (Jura – France) and apparently we were not the only ones thinking that as Baumes-Les-Messieurs has actually been elected as one of the “Most beautiful villages in France”. This very selective list only counts 156 villages in France and this make Baumes-Les-Messieurs a must-see when visiting Jura.
Another must-see in Jura and almost as impressive as Niagara falls…
When I was little, my first and only travel dream was to go to Australia and meet kangaroos (I was a big fan of Skippy :)). Granted, I didn’t know much about the world but that’s probably when my travel itch started. I had to go to Australia!
Sadly I haven’t been to Australia yet (*still saving*) but one thing is sure : the more you travel, the more you want to keep traveling. You know, this syndrome : You barely finished your vacations that you start planning the next ones.
Since my first travel, my to-do list hasn’t stopped getting longer and longer. It is so long that I wonder if I haven’t forgotten my first “to-do’s” which is a shame because they probably were awesome!
It is always fun to see how your goals and aspirations evolve as you become a more experienced traveler. My first travel experiences were “beach resorts” vacations and so were my dream vacations at that point : “beach, pool, food”. Heaven!
I don’t mean that beach resorts are not good, in fact they are really relaxing but my interests have evolved. I discovered the outdoors and I discovered that I love hiking. And if you start thinking about all the amazing trails around the globe to explore.. well it’s about how long my dream bucket list is.
Luckily I am also (slightly) realistic and have shorten it to make it more do-able and readable.
Don’t worry, my childhood dream to go to Australia is still on it. I might keep it till the last moment for a “Grand Final”! An ultimate “Bucket List Done” celebration travel! Even though I am pretty sure, travel bucket lists can never be totally accomplished. It is dark magic at work which keep them getting longer. Read more

The Herisson Waterfalls (Les Cascades du Hérisson) are a must-see if not THE must-see when visited Jura.
We headed to the Herisson Waterfalls without really knowing what to expect. I had basically seen it on the map earlier that morning and have a “Let’s do it” moment. (I have a lot of those :)) Read more
After a long drive from Sweden to France (2 days), the last thing we wanted to do was to take the car and drive some more. We (dog included) just wanted to put on our hiking boots and hit the trails as soon as possible. But where should we go? Read more
