The big picture
I am a woman within my late twenties from France, my name is Emma. As far as I can remember I am deeply in love with travelling, like many others, thus I decided to go exploring the world. My dream was always to visit Far East Asia, so much that it became my field of study. Therefore, when the right moment came, I left travelling.
Again, as many people, I am also keen on taking pictures, so a blog is a good way to share my best pictures.
One of my goal in life became more clear after all these adventures: nature suffers and we owe something to ‘Her’. Humanity greed and stupidity brings many species to extinction and, you know it well, major climate changes. I want to have a role in our ‘repairing’ and will share some advice I’ve come along on my journey.
Thus, I am writing some articles where I contact some associations to have a more direct way to act to our own scale.
If yourself are a wanderer, a curious person or a dreamer, welcome! You can ask me anything in ‘contact‘ and I will do my best to reply as soon as possible.
Oh and! Excuse my mistakes, as you can guess, English is not my mother tongue.
After finishing my studies, I went on my own for three months in Japan and Korea, where I also discovered the principle of WWOOFing, on 2015.
For the ones who don’t know what that is, it stands for World Wide Opportunity on Organic Farms.We just work in a farm for food and housing.
Even though it was hard, as I was barely 20, I loved it and wanted to renew the experience.
So my family and friends wouldn’t be so worried, I created this blog. The name comes from my dad who was calling me “my flea” (it is pretty common in France), hence the name is pretty obvious.
Since then, the ‘right time of my life’ became ‘forever’. These three months were not enough and decided to just go on as long as I can. Fortunately, a dear friend of mine, Aurélie, was available as I was. We started in a short but amazing WWOOFing trip to Scotland. So she is often mentioned and even wrote some articles on this blog.
(Bonus: if you click on her name, you’ll end up on her personal blog)
We also began together what will be my biggest first adventure: 2 years trip around Asia & Australia, where I met my current partner in Japan. Dante, who’s an Argentinian-former-lone-traveller since an even longer time. Him and I lived in Australia for quite some time and then visited Asia for 6 months to finish the trip in France & Argentina. Now, we keep on our adventures together. Many pictures are his (it is always mentioned) as he is the one who’s teaching me photography.
Whenever you see the watermark or legend stating ‘© dMb 2020’, the pictures belong to Dante Mario Bonafiglia. His pictures cannot be used, unless previously asked.
If nothing is mentioned or a picture has the ‘A Flea Quest’ watermark, they belong to Emma Thery under the terms:
You still have to warn me if you use my pictures for any purpose.
All the texts, unless mentioned otherwise, are written by Emma.
A bit before the lockdown of COVID-19, I made a partnership with Bookaway (that’s pretty much the worst moment to agree to a partnership with a travel company).
I do earn a percentage of a trip you book through clicking on a link of my articles, but know that the final price is not modified. The company is competent, proactive and the prices are fair. That’s why I decided to agree to a partnership with them actually.
It might seem strange, but like the saying goes ‘one has to live off something’, and I’d rather like it to be something I like. Even though I’m not living out of that actually.
Moreover, nothing forces you from clicking! 🙂 It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
