Things To Do in Lyon: Visit Musee des Automates

June 16, 2013
To tell you honestly, I had no idea what to expect when I visited this museum. I just saw it on the list of the places to see on the tourist information cum Lyon map that I have so I visited it. Well that’s after I got lost a couple of times since Lyon, as previously mentioned, does not have clear signage for directions and tourist spots. I followed the way to Rue St Georges which as per my map, is the locat

Things To Do in Lyon: Start your day at the center of Lyon – Place Bellecour

June 7, 2013
The center of Lyon is Place Bellecour which is considered as one of the biggest squares in Europe.

An odd and lonely statue of Louis XIV is the landmark of this famous square erected right in the middle of it. From this point, you will be able to access t

Things To Do in Strasbourg: Visit the Strasbourg Cathedral de Notre Dame

May 24, 2013
Among all of the Notre Dames that I have seen, I think Strasbourg Cathedral de Notre Dame is the grandest and biggest so far. After my research, it is actually the 6th tallest church in the world. It is the most popular landmark of Strasbourg and somehow, I felt like it’s a little bit out of place with its gothic architecture amidst the timber houses of Strasbourg. Like all the other medieval churches, it boa

Things To Do in Strasbourg: Walk around the fairytale village of La Petite France.

May 23, 2013
Strasbourg
What I like most about France in general is the country is so big that going from one corner of it to another gives you a totally different ambiance and scenery. No cities will look alike, well at least during this trip that I did. Strasbourg is a city in the north-eastern part of France and is very close to Germany. Whenever I tell someone that I’m going to Strasbourg, the first question they always ask is w
