Sacré Coeur – Paris

When I think back to Paris in the winter, even with the dark grey skies, the rain, and the cold…it is still utterly magical and magnificent. A true architectural beauty is the Sacré Coeur, situated at the top of the hill in Montmartre. Overall, I would summarise the area of Montmartre as dodgy. Other then […]

A Sunday at the Louvre Museum – Paris

A trip down memory lane today to Paris in the winter, all the way back in January. Boy how time flies! We started our day walking the streets to Paul’s for a quick breakfast of coffee and baguettes. With sustenance and caffeine, we waltzed on over to the Louvre and got in line.  Not until we entered, […]

Le Relais de l’Entrecôte – Saint Germain – Paris

Le Relais de l’Entrecôte is a bit of an institution in Paris. Having first visited back in 2010, I made sure that we went for dinner on this trip, as it was the perfect spot for a fulfilling meal of Steak Frites (steak and fries), served in a traditional French maid type of setting. There […]

Paris – Food & Travel Diary – Deux

Howdy! It has been a long time coming since my last post, sorry for being so quiet. Of course, the eating during this period has not slowed down, just my ability to find an hour to blog has been the issue. I am currently sitting in front of the heater, with hot tea and a […]

Notre Dame Cathedral – Paris

Stuck in Sydney whilst the rest of your Facebook friends are off travelling Europe? Not to worry, we are all in the same boat. I must admit, I am jealous, even envious. But I can’t complain, I’ve had my fair share of travelling and know that another trip is always around the corner (I have […]

La Tour Eiffel – Paris

No tourist trip to Paris is complete without a stop at La Tour Eiffel. This was my third time in the city of love, but I still made sure that I visited this monumental landmark during the day, and once at night to see the light display. In the summertime, it is beautiful to sit […]

Angelina – Paris

The delightful thing about Paris in the winter is that you can drink le chocolat chaud (hot chocolate) whenever you please. In the summer time, the last thing you want is a warm drink. But in the cold weather, there is nothing better then a warming cup of melted chocolate with a dollop of cream, […]

Europe 13/14 – Instagram Diary

I have come to realise that I took a f*** load (excuse my French) of photos on my recent trip to Europe, and will most likely spend the first half of this year blogging them all. To show the comparison, I took approximately the same amount of photos on this four week trip, as I did […]

Paris – Food & Travel Diary – Part 2

Bonjour again and welcome to part two of my four day stay in Paris. If you skipped part one you can find it here. This blog is primarily made up of photos that were snapped here and there around the city and a few shots of food. We were blessed with beautiful weather since we […]
