Antoine has worked as a journalist for a publication specializing in the great outdoors. His love of travel comes from the time he spent outdoors growing up. Originally from France, relocated to Quebec, he is curious about everything, from what is happening in his own backyard to what's going on at the other end of the world.

On March 7, the subsidiary of Apple Leisure Group (ALG) announced that it had signed an agreement with Oasis Hotels & Resorts to acquire two family-owned resorts, located in Mexico, including the Grand Oasis Tulum, on the Riviera Maya, in the unspoiled area of Akumal.
