A couple weeks ago I wrote a post about the Lessons I’ve Learned from World Travel. That article was about some of the wonderful aspects of travel and how they have shaped me. Though, I didn’t mention some of the more difficult parts of travel. Before I tell you what the most difficult parts about travel […]
No…. it’s not a real word, I just made it up. But Louvrephiles do exist and I’m definitely one of them. Today was about the 17th time I’ve been to the Louvre during my 7 month stint here in Paris. When I arrived my girlfriend and I got the carte louvre jeunes for only 32euro […]
Last week I went to the Château de Vincennes, barely 25 minutes from where I live. Since I was little the Middle Ages always fascinated me (also I had just been nerding out on the series Game of Thrones before going there). In fact, it was the first castle that I’ve ever been to in […]

Since I moved into my new place in Paris, my roommate Amélie has been awesome enough to take me and Neeta to see live music every week in different parts of the city. However, last weekend she was out of town so on Saturday we chose a place at random that had a group playing […]
One thing I love about living in Paris is checking out cathedrals. While I’m strolling around the city if there’s a cathedral and it’s open I’m most likely gonna go in and take a look. This beautiful cathedral is the Eglise de la Sainte-Trinité in the 9ème arrondisement.
Qu’est-ce que c’est? Dans la infâme Cathedrale de Notre Dame il y a une petite pièce de la fenêtre vitrée qui est different. La Vierge Marie regard dans le néant. Elle était la en premier ou elle est la new kid on the block? What is this? Inside the infamous Cathedral of Notre Dame there […]
