La Page Hellocoton de mandarines

Je m'appelle Melody et depuis toujours j'aime voyager. J'ai ouvert mon blog il y a plusieurs années de cela pour partager avec mes proches les deux ans que j'ai passé en Chine. Depuis beaucoup de choses ont changé! J'aime voyager mais pas prendre l'avion, lire, tricoter, faire du yoga, les jolies illustrations, les boissons chaudes, la photographie, les groupes folks et j'en passe... Je vous invite à la découverte!
