Things To Do in Paris: Take a nap at the Luxembourg Gardens

May 19, 2013
I already had a clear idea in my mind that I will spend at least half a day in this garden which I have missed to visit the first time I was in Paris. It was one of the places that I was looking forward to visit for this trip, this and the Sacre Coeur. I bought an eclair, hot coffee and water from the bakery just across the garden before entering the park. It was a perfect park day as it was not very chilly. It was

Day 14: Provencal Tour in Nice, France

August 30, 2009
We were picked up at the hotel at 9 in the morning and we joined an Australian couple and 3 Italian ladies for this Provencal tour. We first went to St Paul Vence, the village of artists. It was really really awesome. The village was once a haven for artists such as Picasso. I loved it and it was the best village we visited for this whole trip. There were lots of small shops offering paintings, sculptures and all o

First Day in Nice, France

August 30, 2009
We went to Madrid Terminal 4 at around 4am to catch the Brussels Airline flight to Nice via Brussels at 0645. The plane ride from Brussels to Nice was the worst I’ve had or maybe I just plainly hate plane rides. It’s good though that the scenic view from the airport to the hotel in Nice was breathtaking, it took my mind off the horrible plane ride. Clear blue sea on your right and mountains in front of you was

Day 3: Lovely Paris at night

May 13, 2008
So yes, I was officially down with flu. I was supposed to drag Kay down to Disneyland Paris but how can I do that when just thinking about Mickey Mouse all happy and gay in his own little land makes me want to puke? So I stayed in for the whole day and had a looooong rest. Chubby was online and kept me company all throughout – the Parisian way of course, whatelse? We waited for Jerome’s arrival from wor

Day 2: Flu and Versailles

May 13, 2008
So the freezing weather gave me colds and flu. Dammit!!!!! Trust me, getting sick while you’re traveling is not a very nice experience. You’re torn between wanting to explore the city that you’re in and wanting to get better. Knowing myself that whenever I get sick, I really have to nurse it but how can I nurse it when I’m in Paris? I mean for heaven’s sake it’s France!!! It̵

Day 1: Only in Paris

May 13, 2008
Night before 15th of April, I was jittery and nervous since I wasn’t able to ask for Kay’s contact number in Paris. Was very close to booking myself a hotel but she went online at around 2:30am. YAY! Accommodation in Paris sorted. I had an hour or so sleep before heading to the airport. Holding a subload ticket, I am on a standby but the flight’s not loaded so they gave me my boarding pass right a
