A chateau weekend in Burgundy

This weekend we escaped Paris for a weekend in Burgundy. We stayed at the magnificent Chateau de Missery, which has been in the command of the British Hawkes family for decades. On the way to the chateau, Lina and I discovered the architectural wonder of the Chateau de Guedelon - and also the nearby Colette Museum.

We made a children’s book

We've made a children's book! We are so proud to finally announce the launch of Kylie The Crocodile in Paris.

To pre-order a copy and back the project check out our Kickstarter page: http://kck.st/3o3TBUy There you can find everything you need to know about the story, how to order a copy, and even how you can get your name in the book!
