First Morning in Paris

This was my second trip to Paris. In 2014 I visited Europe for the first time, and Paris was my first stop. I researched. I had lists. I ticked off those lists like the completion freak I am. I had a great time but I hadn't really stopped to smell the roses enough and I... Continue Reading →

Europe 2019: I’m off to Paris

Flying economy to Europe from Australia never gets enjoyable. Arriving in Europe from Australia is always enjoyable. One requires the other. Grinning and bearing it, the order of the day. Or days, as the case may be. I live a couple of hours from my nearest international airport. Our train service makes me weep every... Continue Reading →

Oops I’m doing it again

Barcelona Day 3

My third day in Barcelona, and 23rd of my trip, started with nothing planned. I had a few ideas but my visit to the Sagrada was the last big ticket item on my itinerary and now I was winding down, and tired. After a sleep in I decided to see one more Gaudi. Not far... Continue Reading →

Barcelona Day 2 & Sagrada Familia

If you are going to pre-book anything in Barcelona, make it the Sagrada Familia. I booked it months before I went and the number of walk ups I saw on the day being turned away reminded me how smart that had been. It is the most astonishing building and not to be missed, so plan... Continue Reading →
