In honor of the 126th Birthday of the Eiffel Tower yesterday, I thought I would share some of my best places in Paris to view this beauty. The 2nd floor of the Louvre from the Richelieu wing. From the Dome of Sacre Coeur. Keep in mind it is a climb of 300 steps but absolutely […]

When I’m visiting a foreign country I love discovering the local eateries. If you haven’t already guessed, my life revolves around eating and photographing. I was quite surprised to experience such great food while we were in Bruges. Our first dinner was at this great Argentinian restaurant just near the town square. My sister in […]

Did you know that the historic city center of Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage Site? One can understand why after exploring just a small part of the city square. This is where we focused most of our attention for two days. I arrived at the train station early in the afternoon and was able […]

Bonjour Paris: Part Un

March 12 , 2013 by Hong - in Places

Our Parisian Holiday began with a short one hour flight from Bristol. It amazes me how inexpensive it is to travel within Europe. It makes me want to be a squatter in my sister’s home for a year. Since we didn’t arrive in Paris til later in the evening our first priority was to check […]

The first leg of my Whirlwind Holiday was spent at my sisters home in Bristol. Actually she lives in this cute little town called Chew Magna. It’s mainly farmland and is so quaint and lovely. She has a charming farmhouse with a contemporary interior, the perfect combination. This is the view from her front door. […]
