Hi and welcome to The Beauty is in the Walking! This blog is driven by curiosity through any types of journeys. Whether the journey is adventurous, culinary, cultural, or whether it has any other forms, let it arouse our interest, shape our personality, make us grow, and enrich our vision of life and our beliefs. Let it captivate our minds and make us feel alive! Because Life is a progression, a path that we follow and from which we learn. It finally doesn’t matter to where we go; the most important thing is the route we take. In short, and to quote Welsh poet Gwyn Thomas: “But the beauty is in the walking—we are betrayed by destinations”. Welcome!
I’m Véronique, the person behind the words, some of the photos and ideas shared here, and he is Erik, the one whose magic smile opens many of the conversations that enrich our posts, and who also takes the other part of the pictures. And our discussions, debates, laughs equally contribute to what we share in here. ;-)
We are a French-Dutch couple originally from Grenoble, a small city nestled in the heart of the French Alps known for its stunning mountain scenery (and ski resorts), its worldwide famous walnuts, and perhaps even its Saint-Marcellin soft cheese, whose creamy taste leaves people speechless. Grenoble is also, and more importantly a city which is committed, resistant, dynamic, cultural and pretty when we look at it carefully. It’s a city in movement, enthusiastic and committed to the future.
We know it by heart; it’s our home port.
We are based in Copenhagen, Denmark. After a long trip in Asia and Oceania, we decided to settle down there to continue making life an adventure in a place that we love and which corresponds to the kind of life that we are looking for. Of course “To leave is to die a little; it is to die to what one loves” but it is above all to live, to enrich ourselves and to be happy. And we are very glad to be here!
We hope that you will like our blog! We try as much as possible to make it interesting to read, and a place for discussion and sharing.

This blog is most of the time written in French and translated into English in order to allow our non-French speaking family, friends and you all to read our posts. However, as we are not native English speakers, it is not rigorously translated as a professional bilingual web site could be. Sorry in advance for any mistake we could make. Thank you for your understanding and we hope you will enjoy our stories and tips!
Véronique & Erik
