New Years in Paris – What We Did

Last year we explored Europe once again for the Christmas holidays, and we decided to finish off in Paris! This was our second visit to Paris as a couple, so I was eager to hit up some of the places we missed our first time that I really wanted Wayne to see. This was also my second New Years in the city of lights! It was a wonderful little stay, full of great food, shopping and sight-seeing of course!

Quick Guide to Lisbon

I may not have ever told you this, but Portugal was almost our honeymoon destination besides Paris. Even though we changed our mind and did Belgium instead, Portugal had been on our list of quite some time, and it was exciting to finally go there!

Lisbon is the bustling, charming capital of Portugal. It is a coastal city with all kinds of amazing sites and beautiful scenes to witness, and probably an ideal place to begin exploring the country of Portugal. If you haven’t already, take a look at the photo essay we did, which visually captures a taste of the wonderful character of this city.

We loved this city, though we had little time there, and we hope to go back one day to explore more of it! Let us give you a quick breakdown of what to see, do and try in Lisbon.

I want to try something different today. Because I can, and I like to try new things!

3 Little Museums in Paris

Rodin museum

History, arts and culture – you can find ample exposure to all of these in Paris, the capital city of France.

I have always enjoyed history, from a young age I loved the prehistoric era, ancient Greece, and Medieval times. I also love art, as it is my long-life hobby. It is no wonder that Art museums are my favourite kind of museums to visit, along with science museums because of their interactive displays!

We all know the Louvre, home to thousands of art pieces of huge fame. The “Mona Lisa” is the main attraction, and is usually jam-packed with tourists taking dozens of ridiculous photos, holding up their babies and attempting selfies.

Forget the Louvre, at least for today. I have three lovely little museums that will thrill any art or art history lover and appreciator.

Tale of Two Islands – Santorini

Greece was nothing like how I always imagined, but it is absolutely wonderful, and has become my husband’s top favourite country so far! The islands of Greece are a rugged type of beauty, full of rocky cliffs, breath-taking sights, and winding roads. The people are friendly, the food is delicious, and the lifestyle on the islands is different than anything I have yet experienced.

Santorini vs. Mykonos:

We went to both Santorini and Mykonos, and I will state right off the bat that there is no way to compare these two islands. They are both very different in their vibes, culture,  and lifestyle; even the way the islands are geologically shaped affects their character. This is a two-part blog series that will focus on each island individually, and today we begin with our first stop: Santorini.

48 hours in Berlin – An Itinerary

Today I tell you about our last stop in Germany, the capital city, and how we spent our precious 48 hours in Berlin.

Between Munich and Berlin, we spent time with family and friends for Christmas in a small town about an hour away from Cologne. It was very relaxing and by far our laziest days of the trip!

One of our most active days, however, was our first day in Berlin. We arrived in Berlin late at night, which meant that we would wake up with two full days to explore the city.

Sometimes dubbed the “Cinderella castle” due to the renown fact that Walt Disney used it’s architectural style to inspire the castle seen in the Cinderella animation film, the Neuschwanstein Castle is a beautiful and popular destination.

48 hours in Munich

Another 2 (and some hours) day stop, now in our first German city! Right off the bat, I have to tell you guys that we felt that two days was much too short of a time to spend in a great city like Munich! It is most definitely on our list to visit again! We absolutely loved Germany, and I think Munich is probably our favourite German city. The history, the scenery, the beer are all super fantastic, and I’m sure you’ll have a blast there too. So, without further ado, here is an overview of our time in Munich.
