Who Are Ze Wandering Frogs?
Who are we?
Living the American dream to our fullest, we are French-American living in Oakland, California. We are however currently on a round-the-world tour, and you can follow our itinerary here.
We are outdoor lovers, from snowboarding and snowshoeing around Lake Tahoe in winter, to windsurfing & kiteboarding in the San Francisco Bay Area Delta or backpacking in the Sierra Nevada in the summer.
Travelers at heart, we lived in France, Scotland, Taiwan, Germany, and the USA and discovered 30+ countries worldwide, from Australia, China, Thailand, Benin, Senegal to Ecuador, Brazil, Mexico, and Canada.
Why a travel blog?
We are living a continent apart from our families and most of our friends, so writing down about our trips felt like a good way to keep in touch, as well as sharing our travel experience – not only with those close to our hearts but also with the travel community. I spent a lot of time searching online about trips and sometimes it’s hard to find specific details. My goal is to share some of these preparations, trip planning, destination feedback and any other useful tips.
I am neither a writer by trade, nor is English my mother tongue – apologies in advance for any grammar mistake, or weird turn of phrase.
Ze Wandering Frogs – world travelers with a French twist
Our best experience?
Hard to choose but some of the highlights include dog mushing in the Arctic Canada, seating by a Silverback gorilla in Rwanda, walking among iguanas and boobies in the Galapagos, diving among Manta Ray in Hawaii or groupers in the Great Barrier Reef, trekking in the Himalayas in Nepal, or watching Giraffe walking by from our tent in Serengeti.
When we are not traveling…
… we were busy with our day jobs. Bruno was VP Software Engineer at Black Diamond Video, a provider of digital video processing solutions for medical, federal and commercial applications, and I was the former Director of Content Marketing at Viator, a TripAdvisor company, and an online resource for researching and booking tours and activities worldwide. We are currently consulting in both software development for Bruno and marketing and social media for myself.

Well, there is a long list of ideas and trips, stay tuned for more! Working for a travel company means endless new destinations added to our dream list every day. We do have a bucket list, and I will be putting this on the blog at some point, to hopefully be able to make these a reality 🙂
