Musee d’Orsay and Paris in the 19th Century – Context Travel Paris Tour

Usually, the day when Mr. Misadventures and I arrive in Paris we arrive at our hotel, shower, go out for a meal and end up in bed at around 5/6 pm.  We are beat from our flight, but in reality, we are wasting precious hours.  For our trip this past June, we had a traveling companion, a friend of Mr. Misadventures, so we wanted to make sure that he got to enjoy every single hour of Paris while we … [Read more...]

It made for an excellent accompaniment for our gourmet … [Read more...]

French Friday – Notes on Nice

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #186: Chateau Richeux Sunroom

I was looking through some photos for Highlights I was creating for my AFAR Wanderlists when I ran across this one of the sunroom inside the Chateau Richeux. I do wish they would hurry up with that whole Star Trek transporter thing, or even the holodeck, so that I can curl up with a book right in this very spot anytime I want. What about you? Have you ever re-looked at trip photos and found a … [Read more...]
