Peregrinating around the world, one step at a time!
My name is Adrien and I am Swiss digital entrepreneur. I founded in 2018 Cruizador, the 1st Swiss digital motorbike rental platform. But I’m also a dedicated traveler and a sports enthusiast.
For quite some time (over 15 years now), I have started to travel around to discover new places, to meet different people, to challenge my common beliefs, in other terms, to experience the world. Often, I stayed only for a little while. From time to time, I had the chance to stick around for a longer time, either for my academics or for work. But in all cases, I have enjoyed it ever since.
Additionally, I have a passion for photography. I started as a kid in India in 1992 with an analog camera (Nikon), taking pictures for and of the entire family. Since that moment, I have tried to refine my eyes to capture unique moments and to express somehow my creativity, which is, in my opinion, a crucial part in one’s life.
Nonetheless, even if the technology/material have evolved, and my skills improved, the purpose is still the same: trying to capture an instant, an ambiance, a smile and sharing moments, as humans bearing many differences but also embodying shared values!
About 10 years ago, I started blogging to present digitally what my eyes had produced. And the feedbacks I got kind of encouraged me to take it a slightly more professional level and to confront my work to a slightly broader audience. So here I am, with the new website, displaying my portfolio, and the dedicated online print shop where you can, in a few clicks, order made-to-order prints, wish cards and occasionally seasonal items (a.o. calendars).
So I hope you will enjoy it. Don’t hesitate to hit me up with feedbacks/questions. I am always grateful for this!
Cheers & thanks for stopping by!
How do I spend my time now?
Being an entrepreneur certainly is a full time job, especially in the early beginnings, when you have to hustle and multitask day in and day out to make your project strive.
However, photography is a passion of mine that not only combines well with other passions, such as traveling, but also helps me in my daily life; seeing things from different perspectives, approaching problem with a fresh new eye.
So when I’m not behind my laptop (or in-between), you will find me hopping on my motorcycle to go on an adventure, or catching a plane/a train to visit friends or discover new places.
Last but not least, since I’m taking, according to people, decent pictures , I carry out from time-to-time photographic assignments.

1264 days separate precisely this post from the last one, funnily also in Marrakech. Why so long? Well in those 1260+ days, tons of things happened, which could explain, to a large extent, why it took so much time to update the blog. A world pandemic, that...
I first visited Marrakech in Spring 2018, whilst on a business trip. Though, I had decided to extend my stay a little bit to stroll around the Medina, and to visit some of the great sights that this amazing city boasts: Jardin Majorelle, Place Jemaa el'Fna, Bahia...
“The most colourful thing in the world is black and white, it contains all colours and at the same time excludes all.” To conclude this 2018 Edition of my Ethiopian adventures, I will deviate from the usual short-list of my favorite pictures. Considering that I...
