Exploring The Beautiful Medieval Village of Eze, France

January 11, 2019
Eze, France
The French Riviera is blessed with numerous medieval villages but Eze is at the top of my list to go back to on my recent trip with The Greek Mister. I fell deeply in love with it the first time I was there and I wanted my husband to experience the same. Eze is a mere 25-minute drive from Nice, I went there the first time by joining a group tour – constrained in time, I was unable to enjoy it as much as I wo

5 Days in Nice, France Itinerary

January 4, 2019
Nice, France
5 days in Nice, France is not enough, let’s start this blog post with the ugly truth. It’s just not possible to explore every places mentioned in the guidebooks as well as those off-the-beaten path in 5 days, I reckon it’ll require a minimum of 2 weeks to be able to explore most of it. Most, not all. I plan on living there sometime in the future though because I just couldn’t get enough of i

It didn’t take a long time for me to decide to spend a weekend in Bordeaux with a day trip to Saint-Emilion for my birthday. From Bordeaux, we took a 30-min train ride to Saint

Weekend in Bordeaux

Weekend in Bordeaux | A simple travel guide with detailed daily expenses.
A much-needed weekend in Bordeaux was what my birthday celebration was. I’ve been feeling (wayyy) under the weather the past couple of days and I felt like being properly away from work to explore an entirely new destination was what I needed to feel better. Needless to say, I actually do feel a lot better now after that short trip, I guess I have

Chamonix, France - PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-109
My dream of a white Christmas became a reality last year, we embarked on a road trip across the country and spent a few days surrounded by snow and the incredible Mont Blanc as a backdrop. It definitely was the best Christmas I’ve ever had, I couldn’t have asked for more and it’s all thanks to The Greek Mister for making it happen. While I was on a business trip in Australia, the Greek Mister sole
