About a life changing project, a dream, an adventure, a travel single way to India and many coconut trees.

Hi, thank you for visiting this 3 Elephants blog.

My name is Benjamin, my wife’s name is Marjorie. We have a 3 years old daughter named Maya.

We are a French Parisian couple, who expatriated ourselves to Kerala, South India, six years ago. We left with the money from selling my little flat in Paris, and the dream to design and open our own Eco Resort, between a sandy tropical beach, and the famously amazing Kerala Backwaters.

We succeeded.

This blog sails around our story, more or less far depending upon the wind….

A new life, a new everything.

No plan, jump and learn swimming straight from the river.


So no structure but a same path, various posts there already, probably many more to come from the tropical blog river.

Nice talking to you, I’ll try to answer my best if you have any question.


Hope to see you again.

    Bonjour! je vous ai nominés dans mon blog!

    • Bonjour, merci pour la nomination pour cet award. Comme apparemment cela l’a été pour vous, c’est un embarras flatteur, ou une flatterie embarrassante…

      Je ne suis pas toujours pour ce type de chaîne, mais c’est la première fois, et puis cela donne de la visibilité aux petits blogs… Promis, je vais faire l’effort.

      Merci encore, je suis donc flatté…même si “tout flatteur vit aux dépends…”

        Bon courage et bonne continuation aux trois éléphants!
