    Travel: Metro in Paris

    Metro in Paris is an easy way to get around. It’s flexible and the schedule is full of so many trains coming and going. The one tricky part is the tickets. We got the carnet in a 10 pack, so for 14.90 euro. A good deal. Now, what’s tricky? The part is how they are used. We were told by the metro agent that the tickets are only good for one way – no transfers. Yet on more than 7 occasions (and actually just not…

    Travel: Montparnasse Tower

    Montparnasse Tower – the best views in Paris. Well, to see the city, anyway. We got the 48 hour pass, where you could visit twice – once during the day and then again at night. Well worth it. The views are so different at night versus during the day. Be sure to check it out for some awesome city views. Montparnasse Tower No need to buy your ticket ahead of time – there is no cost savings (or wasn’t at the time we went) and…

Ingredients 6 roma tomato 1/2 of a white onion 2 tablespoons of cilantro 1 teaspoon of garlic 2 teaspoons of lime juice dash of hot sauce salt to taste Deseed the tomatoes and cut them into equal sizes – about 1/4-1/8 of an…

    Travel: Eurostar London to Paris

    Eurostar London to Paris is well worth checking out. The trip itself is just over 2 hours and 30 minutes. Plus, unlike going to the airport for an international flight, you only have to show up 60-45 minutes beforehand. Leaving you far more time to visit London or Paris. The last awesome part of travelling by train – your drop-off and pick-up points are in the city centre. Not hours away at an airport. Eurostar First – keep you eye on Eurostar’s site – that’s…

    Travel: 4 Days in London

    4 days in London – that’s right, this past September we ventured over the pond as people sometimes call it and spend 4 days in London and 4 days in Paris, coupled with a couple of travel days for an awesome 10 day trip. So – where to start? First, we got a great deal on flights. I used Hopper this time, but didn’t buy directly from them. Instead I used the app to keep track of flight prices. Once that was done, I did…
