If you’ve been reading my blog for the past few months, you’ll know that this March I spent two weeks traveling around Europe during my spring break. Without a doubt, one of the best things about moving to Scotland has been the ability to travel to Europe so frequently, easily, and – most importantly – cheaply. I really took advantage of that during these two weeks. While I’ve mostly wrapped up my…

    Vibrant Versailles // Enjoying the Extravagance of France’s Most Popular Palace

We all knew that when we visited Versailles we would be in for some big crowds. At the same time, I think we all had a similar rationality.

As much fun as packing all of the major sights of Paris into one day was, I was especially excited about exploring the parts of the city that I hadn’t seen in pictures a million times before. Basically, I was ready to see off the beaten track Paris. And boy, did the Latin Quarter really deliver.

If you make a purchase from one of them I will recieve a small commision at no extra cost to you, which allows me to keep this blog up and running! I have to admit that I was skeptical when one of the girls I was traveling to Paris with suggested that we fit in all of the top sights into our first day, leaving us time to do whatever else we wanted to with our remaining days in the city. How exactly were we supposed to fit all of Paris’ top sights into one day? Don’t people take a whole week to do…
