Welcome,

Cobalt is a metal with bluish and grey tones, found in its purest state in the earth we walk. A natural element, more specifically a transition element, all this representing to us beauty and strength, inspiring us to create this new state of mind in which we believe.

We are Floriane and Basilio.

Photography and traveling are two of our dearest passions. Around Asia, on our first adventure together, we decided to make a life change and give us a chance to do what we love the most.
A couple months later we were launching our travel project. Since then, we traveled to 5 continents, with our laptops and our cameras, filming and documenting through our experience — and we want to share all that with you.
We think of us as slow travelers, we like to really immerse ourselves in every country we visit and get soaked in the mood of the place, trying to experience its life and its culture, all while enjoying its most beautiful and thrilling experiences.
We want to make sure you have the best adventure by providing expert insight.
On this webzine, you will find writing, fine art and photography, guides full of advice and good tips. So, it can help you on your next travel to enjoy your trip and make the most out of your money and experience. All this with the charm of our personal touch and taste !
For the past two years we have lived and travelled abroad, spending a lot of time in New Zealand, South East Asia and Europe, if you are headed to any of those places, then you’ll  find here photos and advice that may help you along the way.
Now we are in Mexico for the next months and the adventures keep coming — and we want to share them with you. We hope we can inspire you to do the same and go travel your adventure, find your own state.
