A Sinful Day in Lyon (from a traveler’s point of view)

June 2, 2013
I arrived at Lyon Part Dieu station at around 8 in the evening and at that point, I was really exhausted. My legs were aching and I was sick and tired of dragging my suitcases all around France. I got out of the station with so much confusion as well as the tram system was too complicated to understand in an exhausted state that I was already in at the time. I was also grumpy already to even ask for directions from

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

Things To Do in Paris: Explore the area of Pigalle.

May 17, 2013
The night before, I posted a Facebook status asking all my friends if they can give me some tips on which places should I visit the next day in Paris. I already have some things in my mind but I felt like I needed to seek some advice from all my well-traveled friends as well. One reply I got was from a French guy himself and of course being a guy, he suggested for me to go to Pigalle. (Men!) To be honest though, I

Where I Ate in Paris: Le Cafe Chappe

May 16, 2013
After spending half a day walking around Montmartre, I came across Le Cafe Chappe and decided to eat my brunch there. The free wifi was the main reason of this decision by the way. Haha! The restaurant was not very busy yet when I got there which was around 11 in the morning. Too early for lunch and too late for breakfast I guess. I went inside the restaurant and greeted the waitress, Au Revoir! to which she and th

Things To Do in Paris: Visit the most romantic spot of the city, Pont des Arts

May 10, 2013
The Pont des Arts is a pedestrian bridge which crosses the Seine River however, it is more famously known for being the place where you show your undying love and affection to your partner. Lovers will put a personalized lock on the bridge and throw the key into the river Seine as a sign of their eternal love. I’ve checked out some of the locks and it really is amazing as to how creative people can get. Some

Things To Do in Paris: Visit Sacre Coeur.

May 8, 2013
Sacre Coeur, oh Sacre Coeur – how can you be so pretty? Before I went to Paris, I again watched one of my favorite films of all time – Amelie. The movie gives you a really nice introduction of what you can see in the Montmartre district including the Sacre Coeur. The Sacre Coeur part of the movie is my favorite scene actually. The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris commonly known as the Sacre Coeu
