To close out my section about my European adventures, I wanted to share and highlight some of my favorite stories/ moments. Some you may have already read, but some will be new. In no particular order, here they are! When we first arrived in London, the back door of our AirBnB apartment wouldn't lock. We … Continue reading Europe Favorites
Wow. Four weeks in Europe literally flew by. A month seems like a lengthy amount of time, but when you consider all the things we saw and did, well, that time was gone in an instant. Now almost a year and a half later, as I reflect on this trip, I am still in awe … Continue reading Goodbye for now, Europe.
Are you planning a trip to Paris? RUN, do not walk and book a night bus tour of Paris. Seriously, RUN. Going on a night tour of Paris was beyond a doubt one of our best decisions.

No trip to Paris would be complete without a trip to Marie Antoinette's beautiful palatial home, Versailles. Getting to Versailles should be a relatively simple endeavor from Paris, however, due to some Metro closures, we had to take some roundabout ways to get there. Thankfully, we met a very kind Metro worker who helped map … Continue reading Let Them Eat Cake
Never would I have thought I'd create a post focusing solely on an Abercrombie and Fitch store. However, if you've ever been to the one on The Champs-Élysées, than you will understand why. This store is incredible. It's basically housed inside a mansion. Pictures don't do it justice, but trust me when I say, you have … Continue reading Abercrombie and Fitch- Champs-Élysées

My biggest regret is somehow The Sacre Coure didn't end up on any of our must see lists, and it wasn't until we returned … Continue reading “Paris is Always a Good Idea”

My parents went to Paris in the late 1980s, and were disappointed in their stay, commenting that it was very dirty, smelly, and crowded. More recently I have had friends visit, who also were disappointed with Paris, so … Continue reading Bonjour, Paris!
We left Rome heading for our final destination: Paris, France. We took a Cab from Arches BnB and headed toward the Rome Fiumicino Airport. We made it through security quickly and were soon on our flight to Paris. Our 2 hour 15 minute flight was uneventful. We arrived at Charles de Gaulle Airport, and headed … Continue reading Air Italia

Christina and I were looking for somewhere to go on a free afternoon, and Christina researched Castel Sant' Angelo. It is located near The Vatican and … Continue reading Castel Sant’Angelo
No trip to Rome is complete without visiting the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. I won't lie, I was slightly disappointed in the size of the Colosseum... I was anticipating it to be much larger, however, I was not prepared to hop off the Metro at the Colosseo stop, walk out of the station and … Continue reading Ancient Rome
