DAY 1 | PARIS | FRENCH WINE TOUR

A couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend and I spent a weekend in Paris, then got the train out to the Loire Valley for a few days with my parents touring and tasting the wine region. We got really, really lucky with the weather in that it was boiling hot with bright sunshine, out of … Continue reading DAY 1 | PARIS | FRENCH WINE TOUR

MODERN ART IN MUSEUM SQUARE | AMSTERDAM DAY 2 | WEEKEND WANDERING

And on the second day, the clocks changed. Thus, we did not rise until late morning.

We decided to walk down around 14 flights of stairs and when we got to the bottom, the … Continue reading TATE MODERN | WEEKEND WANDERING
