GLOOBLES FAMILY: Victoire Eouzan in Blog

get to know us

this lovely South of France transplant is as in love with Amsterdam as she is with shooting landscapes. she skilfully combines her photography & graphic design skills to create & play with images, tell stories & reinvent the world around her. if you catch her on a trip, you'll never find her without her best friends - her cameras. she hasn't been everywhere, but it's on her list.

travel magazine
It's called Les Others. It's a French magazine about travel, as well as photography.

prepare for a trip
I prepare for a trip weeks in advance. I look at websites & books to be sure I'll have the perfect mix between "must-see" cultural places & very local ones as well.

place to work
I like to work at coffee bars or co-working spaces. I love to interact with people from different backgrounds.

My favourite bar is called Café de l’Abbaye. It's a hilltop bar in Marseilles, the simplest bar ever. You can drink on the street at plastic tables & chairs, but it has the most beautiful view on the Old Port of Marseilles. In Amsterdam, it's Festina Lente, a typical brown cafe you can stop by any time of day, & it will always feel like you're in your own living room.

date spot
Anywhere you can find good (French) red wine!

place to go with friends
To a restaurant where you can find a large table to share with ten people & you can stay however long you want. A place where you can have nice drinks after dinner & have long conversations about life & other useless things.

My favourite restaurant in Marseilles is called La Cantinetta. It's a bohemian Italian & Mediterranean restaurant that has the best burrata ever! & the best bottarga pasta, & the best cutlet Milanese...

restaurant in Amsterdam
In Amsterdam, my favourite restaurant is Buffet van Odette. Every time I go there, I feel like I'm going to dine at my grandma's.

Definitely the MOMA, but the Tate takes second place.

The movie theatre Le Luxor in Paris. It's a 100 year-old theatre, one of the first in the French capital. It's Art Deco inside & out, inspired by ancient Egypt. It's wonderful.

place to live
For now, it's here in Amsterdam. I find the perfect balance between a dynamic international capital city & the cosiness of a little town.

city trip
Porto, Florence & Madrid.

trip with friends
Corsica! Or Pays-Basque, the French West Coast.

travel bag
A small suitcase from my father. Not too big. I like lightweight travelling, but never just with my daily backpack.

travel outfit
Something casual, cosy & nice; not pyjamas.

travel essentials
A good crime book & a crossword puzzle, music on my iPhone & sunglasses.

next trip
Oman - I'm so excited!

travel bucket list
Road trip in Morocco, Lebanon, a road trip in Iceland, Jordan, hiking in Switzerland, Mexico, Brazil, a road trip down the West Coast of America, South Africa, Namibia, Tanzania. I can't stop, sorry!
