Meeting A Friend in Belgium

Leaving Paris after just 4 days I felt like there was so much left unseen, but the itch to see Europe was tugging at me and a new friend was waiting to see me in Belgium. Overall though Paris turned into a great first stop off for my travels. The people were great, the hostel better than expected and most of all I had taken the leap and not regretted […]

Being Australian I can’t wait to escape the place to be honest. What with all our open space, hot weather and free flowing beer.

Free Walking Tour of Paris

With my first morning in Paris snapping me awake earlier then I had wanted (curse you jetlag) I battled the wake up protocol of the dorm room.

After a short […]
