Travel journals and transition tales towards an ethical and sustainable future

My name is Claire Blumenfeld and I have been running Peregrinus Mundi since 2015. This site follows the evolution of my life in the form of chapters. Chapters I to VI mainly present travel journals and photographs. Chapter VII follows my transition process towards a lifestyle based on ecology and well-being through three approaches that greatly interest me, permaculture, herbalism and eco-construction.

Nature and beauty – part 2

Observation, poetry and naturalism. I continue to observe nature and its intrinsic beauty.

During summer 2020 in France, I walk through parts of the Devoluy and Vercors ranges. The meadows and mountain pastures are filled with flowers and insects, each more beautiful than the other. I continue my observation started in Chamonix and seek through close-up photography of shapes and details to reveal the beauty of nature all around us.

Land of nature and men

What is Camargue? How have history and human exploitation shaped this deltaic plain? And what are the current challenges for the natural environment?

Early January, I note the increase in belligerent behavior between Greater Flamingos and wonder about their mimicry.
