Monet at Giverny

I won't pretend to be knowledgeable about art. I mean, I can tell the difference between impressionism, cubism and surrealism. But if you were to start discussing post-impressionism in great detail or ask for my opinion on baroque, I'd probably look for a polite excuse to escape before my eyes dried up and fell at...

Voyage sur la Route, Part Deux

I'm back with more photos taken on the road in France last year. Again, in no particular order.. I love buddy to the far right, gazing over his shoulder without a care in the world. Did you play that game as a child where you'd hold your breath for as long as you could while... Continue Reading →

Voyage sur la Route

As many of you know, my boyfriend and I spent 2 fun-filled weeks in France last year. We visited Paris, Normandy and Périgord Noir - more commonly referred to as the Dordogne region. Once outside of Paris, James and I rented a car and were able to see areas not easily accessible to us by... Continue Reading →

Largo di Torre Argentina

Largo di Torre Argentina is a square in central Rome with a steeped history. In a city literally stacked with historical sites, it's easy to pass by without a second glance. Known mostly for being the site where Julius Caesar was famously assassinated, Largo di Torre Argentina is also the location of the Torre Argentina... Continue Reading →

Gordon House

Late last week I saw an headline about a Frank Lloyd Wright house being acquired by a museum in New Hampshire, in the United States. For those not familiar with Mr. Wright, he made a name for himself by (among many things) being an innovative architect who's design focused on bridging humans and our natural... Continue Reading →

Église Saint-Sulpice

I'll never forget my first visit to Saint-Sulpice in Paris. That first time wasn't even planned. Because my visits to Paris are usually quite short, Saint-Sulpice never even made it onto my 'must see' list to be honest, and it was only because my cousin (who was lucky enough to call Paris home at the time)...

Versailles

When my friend, Stephanie, and I were in the planning stages of our first trip to Paris, I threw out the suggestion of a day trip to Versailles. I had visited Versailles years prior and was blown away by its over-the-top opulence. It's historical importance is awe inspiring. Every direction I looked I saw a... Continue Reading →

Eating Our Way Across Paris

Bonjour! I'm in the process of merging some content from my other blog, Fernweh Friday, with Marla on the Move. From time to time I'll be migrating some of my older posts here. I figured that a post about the food in Paris was a great place to start! So let's get started with a... Continue Reading →

Maison Aurouze

I took part in a couple of walking tours with Localers when I was last in France. The first focused on the dark side of Paris' history. Our guide, Patrick, had a great sense of humour and after the tour concluded he led us to a rather grotesque sight before bidding us adieu. Yep, those... Continue Reading →
