Let’s start with our new logo. Think of it as a visual shorthand for what we believe. First and foremost, it embodies an anchor including a musical bass cleff and the positive impact we want to have on the world of travel. But it also combines all the other elements water, wind, earth and fire that reflect our brand's mission and integrate optimism, sustainability, ideas, and places to discover - and how we bring it all to you. And of course our very special and personal fifth element - music.
"Water is a really important element for me. Out there on the oceans, I feel calm, relaxed, not stressed of the fast and hectic city life. After having lived on my boat "Marianne" for 5 years, it's not possible for me to live without water anymore. I need it around me, the ocean, a lake, a river... I know, it sounds cheesy and I never thought this was possible before I left on my sailing journey."

As a teenager, Olivier Peyre saw his brother crossing France by bike. Since then, a dream was been born: To go around the world by bike. Following his engineering studies, he was driven by a thirst for travel and discovery and decided to go on an adventure for a zero-carbon non-motorized world tour of 7 years, by bike, sailboat and his paraglider. Since his return in 2015, he has been working on writing the story of his journey: "En Route avec Aile". And one thing is for sure: There are so many more beautiful places in this world that he needs to see from at least 50 meters overground!
The Earth is stable and reliable, yet constantly working and moving. You learn through experience, which is never difficult for a curious person like yourself. You aren’t interested in unrealistic dreams, but rather you believe in setting achievable goals that are attained through hard work.
The element of fire has a great power for forging will and detemination. It is our inner light as well as a living symbol of the Devine fire that burns in every soul.
This element shows traits of passion and strong emotion. Temperamental and quick to anger, fire signs can be known to lash out and ‘burn’ you, either physically or emotionally. However, with this explosive energy to them, fire elements can achieve a lot of things in short amount of time.
