Dinan, France Day 13

Dinan, where have you been all my life? What a beautiful town. I had a foodie adventure here! I’d exhausted the croissants and pain au chocolats, and I wanted to try some local fare, so I found a fabulous boulangerie and went to town!

Caen to Dinan, France Day 12

I love France so very much. How is it I’ve never been here before? I only have one day left until I leave for Spain, then it’s a whole new language barrier! Yikes! So today I had to check out of my hotel at 10:00, but my train didn’t leave until 2:15. I fretted about […]

Caen, France Day 11

I’m in Caen, but I’m supposed to be in Deauville. I’ve got mad skills when it comes to the Eurail train schedule. Serious knucklehead, that’s me!

Paris, France Day 8

Well, another amazing day in Paris down… and only one left to go! I still have so much to see, but what I don’t get to tomorrow will just have wait until I return, and return I will!  This is my new friend Martin (but you have to say it in the French way… MAR-TAN. […]

Paris, France Day 7 Part 2

So, after I went to Pere Lachaise, I decided to take the Metro to Notre Dame. I walked by Hotel de Ville on the way and ate a couple of chocolates that I bought at a cute little shop close by. The chocolate really is outstanding here, especially of the handmade variety. There are so […]

Paris, France Day 7 Part 1

I felt like I should break this day into 2 posts because I took so many pictures at Pere Lachaise Cemetery today that it’s a post all to itself. I have one thing to say – if you like photography, you must come here. I spent over 2 hours walking around, and still didn’t see the […]
