“Voulez vous coucher avec moi ce soir?” Just kidding. Don’t really say that or else you’ll get some unwanted attention. Or wanted, if you’re about that life.
I saw the Moulin Rouge movie when I was around 10 or 11, and I didn’t really understand the plot of the movie, nor did I understand that the Moulin Rouge was a real place. Surprise! On this trip, the Bestie arranged for us to attend a show at the famed Moulin Rouge sans dinner (because it was expensive and we had heard it wasn’t that great anyway).

This is going to be a mostly picture post, so those who aren’t fans of my sarcastic wordiness, this is the post for you to see.
First day in Paris and I was determined to see the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris. I visited the sister basilica in Montreal, and I wanted to see how the original compared. Continue reading “Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris”
Happy New Year’s Eve all! On that happy note, we’ll be talking about Jack the Ripper. I understand that it’s a tad sick and twisted, but I’m quite fascinated by the whole Jack the Ripper spectacle and thought a tour chronicling the Ripper crimes would be interesting on my trip to London.

Any fans of Jane Austen in the house? I fell in love with her writing when I was in high school, but it definitely took me a few tries to catch on to that 19th century style. Once I figured out what was going on, I found her to be one of the most snarky authors I’ve come across, and I love me some snarkiness. Obviously, I don’t care much for grammar.
Anyways, one of my main goals on this trip was to find something Jane Austen-themed, and Google brought me to the website for Hidden Britain Tours (here). Continue reading “Jane Austen Tour”
So, I thought I had already published this post, but I guess there was a glitch in the matrix because I can’t find it anywhere.
Anyway, this was a solo trip out to the Tower of London complex because the Bestie had already been there before. I got sick the last time I visited London and missed the tour my family took at that time, and I was determined to not let that happen this time around. Continue reading “Tower of London”
About a year ago, I wrote about my go-to headphones for travel — the Bose Quietcomfort 35 (click here for my original review). I’m here with an update to that subject.
It has been brought to my attention that I’ve only reviewed one set of headphones — what about other Bluetooth options? Continue reading “Travel Accessories: Bluetooth Headphones”
The Bestie was in charge of our bougie lunch for this day, which brought us to Galvin at Windows, a fancy, Michelin-starred restaurant at the top of the Hilton in London at Park Lane. Continue reading “Galvin at Windows”
