NICE TO MEET YOU
Hello, my name is Marina, aka @dancingtheearth.
I’m a 33 year-old French creative traveling the world as a photographer, a dancer and a writer, seeking the extraordinary in everyday. This blog is a place where I’m sharing my travel tips and itineraries, including everything I would have loved to know before traveling to those places. I hope this sharing inspires you to draw closer to your passion – as it has me to mine – and to consider the world as precious and connected, rather than fierce and unfamiliar. And that it will gives you the nudge you need to chase your dream.
After studying for 5 years in Lyon (LCE Japanese & Research), living in Japan for 2 years, then in London for a trimester, in Paris for 5 years and in New Zealand for 2.5 years, I’m now back in Paris, trying my best to figure out this thing we call life.
I love traveling, discovering new cultures, meeting people, trying new stuff, having a good latte, enjoying spring blooms and summer, the sun, being surrounded by Nature, the ocean, a good book, having my friends at home, cooking vegan food, a good glass of wine and of course documenting everything through photography.
I started my journey towards a happier, simpler and more eco-friendly life in 2018, after seeing the movie Tomorrow. And I’m trying my best everyday to avoid single-use things, plastic, and fast-fashion. If you are somewhere in there, or if you’re willing to but don’t know how to start, I hope that you will find the tips you need here. And if not, you can always send me an email or DM me on Instagram.
Above and beyond my need for self-expression and creativity, I want this blog to be useful for you, a tool you can use for trip-planning or inspiration.
