Pays Basques Photo Diary #1 – Bayonne

Pays Basques Photo Diary #1 – Bayonne

Last week, I got to visit Pays Basques because the kids’ grandma lived there. It was a very chilled week as there were three adults and four kids, so everything was fairly manageable (mostly because the other nanny was very authoritative and capable, taking up […]

Mon cœur saigne pour Notre Dame

Mon cœur saigne pour Notre Dame

Last night was probably one of the most shocking and upsetting moments in Paris, in France and in History. Our Lady, the Notre Dame Cathedral of Paris had sadly caught on fire, a fire so big it has taken many hours for the pompiers to […]

Paris Photo Diary #5

Paris Photo Diary #5

07/04/2019, Dimanche All my original plans fell through today so instead of having a full day of activities, I woke up with no plans, nothing to do and nowhere to go. The weather forecast had been unreliably pessimistic and I couldn’t bear another day of […]

Revisiting the Toons: Newcastle

Revisiting the Toons: Newcastle

It has not been the smoothest trip back. In fact, it was a bloody nightmare. Flybe cancelled my ticket for the last flight of the day to Newcastle for no reason after issuing me my boarding pass and not a single one of the staff […]

Pays Basques Photo Diary #2 – Biarritz

For the second half of my day off, I took the A2 bus from Bayonne to Biarritz, a seaside town most famous for surfing because of the killer waves there. I walked from the bus stop outside Hermés across the beach, past the Notre Dame […]

How to Spend Two Days in Salzburg – Day One in the Old Town

How to Spend Two Days in Salzburg – Day One in the Old Town

I’ve been looking forward to this trip for months. Both my mother and I are big fans of The Sound of Music and we wanted to do a mother-daughter trip within Europe before attending my cousin’s wedding in London. Salzburg, therefore, seemed like a good […]

La Marais – the fancy Parisian quarter

La Marais – the fancy Parisian quarter

Located in the 3rd arrondissement and a bridge across Île de Cité, where Notre Dame still proudly stands, La Marais is arguably the coolest and most stylish quarter. I went there for the first time last Christmas to meet up with my friend and his […]

Austria Photo Diary #1

After six weeks of work for me and school for the kids, we both get some time off our usual routine. The kids have gone to their grandma’s place for both weeks and I get the first of the two weeks off. Having left Paris […]

Anything but French food

Anything but French food

The perks of writing for a travel blog is that I am constantly trying new restaurants and going to new places for articles I’m working on. Most recently, I had the privilege to try out some of the most amazing restaurants in Paris that serve […]

Saturday in Belleville

Saturday in Belleville

There are so many different neighbourhoods in Paris and each with its own unique characteristics. While the Latin Quarter is well known for its feisty nightlife, Belleville is the multiethnic, beautiful working-class district. The name itself means a beautiful city. And true to that, it […]
