the Space Elephant

I promise today we went to more than two museums! Well, two museums and an aquarium. It counts! Our first stop was Dali’s Workshop/Museum. We found it on our first trip to Montmarte by accident, which was the best way to find it! Dali is one of the only artists that I actually go out of my way to learn about so it was extra special to see his art in real life! Probably his most famous image/idea, the melting clock! My favorite image that Dali created is the Space... read more...

What warmth feels like

After our last day of the first half of the trip we decided to go somewhere only a 21 year old girl named Natalie would want to go. Euro Disney. If we didn’t go I would have regretted it, but as much as I pretended it was the same as the real one, it just wasn’t. Good thing I didn’t bring my camera! I have a fear of it not being allowed on rides (leave it on the side for someone to steal), or it being allowed on and I... read more...

the Green map

After our exhausting day of gorging and exploring we needed to sleep in until noon to digest everything. We dedicated this day to going to all the green parts we saw on the map. It was a really slow paced day which was a welcome relief. These were the Luxembourg Gardens. Perfectly trimmed trees and people walking at just the right pace so they are all behind a tree while i take a picture of this. Finally! A picture of food! We had about one of these sandwiches a day.... read more...

Rue des Petits Carreaux

We left all the major touristy bits for the end our trip so this day we spent being shown around by our friend in her natural habitat, Rebecca. I’m going to try to have a friend in every city I want to visit. Being a tourist is so much better when you have someone who can show you the secret bits. Like these orbs! We would have never stumbled upon them. Oh how i love reflective surfaces. In the same area as these orbs of wonder, were these circle towers... read more...

Part Montmarte

Isn’t it fun how you can virtually create two days in one with a simple nap? After we trekked through Pere Lachaise Cemetery we got back to our hotel, slightly jet lagged and gave into an amazing nap. Usually when I take a nap in the middle of the day, i wake up in the evening, take off my contacts and go back to bed. But I usually don’t get woken up by a torrential downpour and thunder. I think it was Paris’ way of kicking our butts out of... read more...

Paris; part one of a million

Hi! I just got back from my Adventure in Paris. 9 days of constant eating, walking, and sneezing. Unlike Vancouver, Paris has been able to muster the strength to bring its temperate above 20 degrees. Which means the trees were in bloom and my nose knew it! I’m going to create one post per day per Paris. Day One! Cemetery! We came all this way to see Jim Morrison, and it only took us 45 minutes to find him! It was smaller than I expected and surrounded by an ugly... read more...
