Where to Go: Colmar

Colmar is a very small city in France, 50km away from Alsace’s capital – Strasburg – and its population is around 70.000 inhabitants. I went there last month with my family right after our quick visit to Paris. The plan was to stay there for two nights, one day to visit Colmar itself and the…

Grandma’s 80th Birthday In Paris

It’s been 20 days since my grandparents are visiting my family and I here in Berlin and I am so happy about that! Also, 2 months ago it was my grandmother’s 80th birthday, so, to celebrate it my mom thought of making her a surprise, which was visiting Paris! She has always dreamed of it…

Where to Go: Giverny

On the last day in France, we were in doubt between visiting Giverny or Versailles, but as I had already visited the royal castle before, we decided for the famous gardens that served as inspiration for Monet’s paintings. To go to Giverny, a small town of 500 inhabitants 75km from Paris, where the painter lived, you can take a subway…

Of course we couldn’t help visiting Eiffel Tower (m.toureiffel.paris), even if it was a very touristic program and crowded. Anyway, it was a great way to start our day and trip, the sky was so…

Paris – Day 1

Finally we arrived in Paris. Our trip lasted nearly 20hrs, including flights and connections, and just when we arrived at the airport, we were greeted with maximum anti-terrorism alert messages, military with heavy weapons by the airport and dishonest. “taxi drivers” (in quotes because it claimed to be official, and when we got in their…

Coming Next!

Although I still have a lot of posts to write, I couldn’t wait to announce that my next trip is already planned! The next (and so expected) destinantions are France, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg! I’ve already been in Paris a few years ago and I haven’t enjoyed the experience at all. Maybe because I went…
