Hi there! I am Amandine and welcome to Little Big Explorations. A small corner of the web where you will find stories about mountains, fireplaces and sunsets.

Little Big Explorations is a cocktail made of my three big passions: outdoors, travel and writing.

About Little Big Explorations

I have been wanted to be a writer for as long as I remember. I had a few blogs over the years and though it remains “just” a hobby, writing brings balance and perspective and relief in my life.

On Little Big Explorations, I write “with sweat and passion” about the journeys we take and how they change us. My curiosity and burning desire to try new things and explore brought me to the top Huayna Potosi (6088m) in Bolivia, made me complete a 90km cross country skiing race and trek in amazing places. I share with stories to inspire my readers for their next escapade and practical information and tips to make it happen, because the best part of dreams is to make them come true!

And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy and your eyes sparkling.


To the infinity and beyond!

New to the site?

There are more than a hundred articles on the blog about activities on foot, in the snow, in water, on a bike or challenges to compete, all with really good reasons to try travel adventure.
