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 →


My sister enrolled herself in a baking program shortly after graduating from high school. I remember questioning at the time if we shared the same genetics, as I'm hopeless where baking is concerned. I wish baking was my thing, but it's simply not. However, I'm actually really good at eating baked goods. So I guess... Continue Reading →

Jardin des Rosiers – Joseph-Migneret

Another trip to Paris means another delicious falafel lunch. I'm nothing if not predictable. As I always do, I headed for l'as du Fallafel and waited patiently in line for my order. My intention was to walk over to Place des Vosges and eat my lunch while people watching in the popular square. It was... Continue Reading →

Paris – #POTD

I left my hotel early this morning to cross the city to visit the Tutankhamun exhibition at the Grande Halle de la Villette (a former slaughterhouse turned cultural centre). On display is an impressive collection of artifacts discovered in the famous Pharaoh's tomb. Here's one of the showstopper pieces on display. The exhibition is only... Continue Reading →

Paris – #POTD

Today's post is brought to you from the gorgeous chateau, Vaux-le-Vicomte. An easy trip from Paris, I highly recommend a visit if you get the chance. I spent a good chunk of my day exploring before hopping back on the train and heading for the picturesque medieval town of Provins. I'm having a lovely holiday... Continue Reading →
