Famous for its vineyards, Saint-Emilion is quite popular for wine aficionados which unfortunately, doesn’t include me *gasp*.

Weekend in Bordeaux

Where I Ate in Lyon: Brasserie Le 1900

July 10, 2013
My last meal in Lyon was in this quaint little restaurant along Rue Victor Hugo – Brasserie Le 1900.

I sat on one of their outdoor dining tables and asked the waiter

Random photos of Lyon at night.

July 9, 2013
Lyon is pretty during the day and enigmatic at night. I specially love the Fourviere area, of course.

The Parliament which I discovered by accident when I took the wrong turn to go to Pont Bonaparte. At night, the bouc
