Wandering Around Paris

Love it or hate it you’d by hard pressed to deny that spending an afternoon wandering around Paris is a bad thing. It’s the kind of city that presents post card views around every corner. The above was snapped right next to the Sacre Coeur Basilica after I’d taken the long way to get there and was lamenting just how many steps can be found in that part of town.


How Much Did It Cost – Paris Budget

So your saving to backpack Europe only you don’t know how much you really need.

Doing Paris Museums

Perhaps I was finally over the jetlag or maybe my marathon day exploring Paris yesterday was to blame, but I slept way later than originally planned.

Sneaking into the Louvre via the train station that stops below allowed us to avoid the lines of people entering through […]
