Anyone who has visited Paris can tell you: it’s not necessarily cheap. Many of the big attractions have an entry fee, with the option to spend plenty more on special exhibits, onsite restaurants and all the souvenirs your little heart can handle. Sightseeing in Paris […]
As promised, here I am with a little update on what has been going on in my personal life lately. My mind has been all over the place in the new year, and I’ve been finding it really difficult to really sit down and focus on sharing my travels and stories…probably because I haven’t left Florida since December. It’s hard to be a travel blogger with no immediate plans to actually go out and travel, you know? That’s why I decided to start this little series, called Life Lately (very original, I know).

Sometimes in life and in travel, things don’t go as planned. Trains are missed, bags are left behind, and wallets are stolen. And in my case, blog schedules are scrapped to make way for some exciting new life events. Today’s post (or let’s be honest, Saturday’s post) was meant to be all about my spring visit to the Louvre with my boyfriend Dan. Instead, I’m showcasing some photos from our trip to the Colosseum. Why? (more…)
What’s it really like to visit the most popular sights in the world? Disappointment is bound to happen at some point when traveling, especially in this media-dominated age. We build these places up in our minds, liking and pinning impossibly beautiful photos as the big departure […]
