With my camera, my microphone and my pencils, I have set off on an adventure searching for joy around the world, with a view to finding and exposing beauty beyond the shadows, sharing enthusiasm and giving a helping hand along the way.

For now, I'm in Giez

Discover the adventure


As a nomadic and humanitarian journalist, campaigning for 20 years for positive information, Isabelle Alexandrine Bourgeois is traveling around the world, looking to reap the joy that can be shared and to offer a platform to inspiring and enthusiastic men and women, who often work in the shadow of the media and in anonymity. To symbolize this joy, she produces and offers little solar lights along the way, in order to illuminate those acts that generate joy, or to bring a message of hope to those who might need it. For the time being, Isabelle and her dog Ulysses are driving around Europe in their motor home Begoodee as ambassadors of beauty, transmitting light from person to person. Her personal involvement and commitment is gratuitous but she needs your support to help her along the way in her adventure.



If you have time for a coffee, climb on board my Begoodee to share what makes you happy or to experience the extraordinary.


Do you know people who are happy, positive, humorous, inventive and full of contagious enthusiasm? I will visit them to spread their recipe for joy!


Support me in my desire to take action by allowing me to make small gestures of friendship or solidarity.
