LEARN MORE ABOUT BE-LAVIE
Why the unusual name choice? Well, simply because friends call me ‘Be’ and because French is the most romantic language in the world. The blog encompasses Be’s life so the English alternative was ‘The life of Be’ but it sounds so much better in French, right?
If you fancy getting to know Be a bit better, read on, otherwise feel free to explore life’s musings on this little stamp of the internet!
‘Travel the World, Experience the Culture, Feed your Curiosity, Enrich your Soul, Tell the Story’.

In addition to travelling, Be is a huge veggie fine dining fan, which she incorporate into her travels. Be’s passion subject is talking eco-conscious lifestyle issues and more often than not, you’ll find her hanging out in coffee shops, sipping on Espresso Martini’s, scoping out street art on her daily walks or perfecting her origami skills!
