Not a wonderful featured image, but this tour was at night and it’s hard to take pictures at night if you don’t know what you’re doing (i.e. ME). Text post about this Edinburgh tour — read if you dare. Continue reading “Edinburgh Underground Ghost Tour”
The Bestie and I took a late flight out of Paris (seated next to a questionable emergency exit door) and woke in the morning ready to explore Edinburgh. Our first stop — Edinburgh Castle. Continue reading “Edinburgh Castle”
Another day trip out of the city of Paris. The Bestie and I hopped on an RER C train to head to the Palace of Versailles. Fair warning: the RER station is walking distance to the palace, but make sure you have a good map or at least follow the right group of people because it’s easy to get lost in the town amidst all the other commuters. You also have the option of booking a tour with a group and taking a coach to the palace, but the Bestie and I are independent women (and a tad on the cheap side), so we opted to take the train.

Disneyland Paris wasn’t on our original list of stops on our European vacation, but once the Bestie found out we would be visiting during their 25th anniversary, we decided to add a day to our Paris time and explore our third Disney park. Continue reading “Disneyland Paris”

Just as a heads up — this is not meant to be an all-inclusive list of transportation options around Paris. You definitely can find a more comprehensive list online. This is just to document how I experienced transportation in Paris and how you can learn from my mistakes. Continue reading “Paris Transportation”
“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). Continue reading “Moulin Rouge”
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”
