Travel around all of Europe

Cycling through the city of lights

One of my favourite memories of experiencing Paris was by bike. It was spring or summer of 2012 and myself and a couple colleagues rented the velib bikes you see around the city and our method was simple – turn in whatever direction looks most interesting. In theory it’s a great plan… but somehow we…

The city of lights and a bit of dark history

If you’re in North America,  it’s probably starting to get a little chilly out and I can almost bet you’ve been thinking about where you’ll go next. I know the feeling – we’ve been doing lots of it ourselves, though I had to remind Jérémie that Lapland only gets 2.5 hours of sun a day in…

Visiting Montpellier and the Languedoc

Sometimes you visit a place and you aren’t immediately stuck with what’s so great about it. That’s how I initially felt about Montpellier. It took me a couple visits to really appreciate it. My first visit was just a day passing through on a road trip and everyone was tired and so it fell flat….

Circling the map

I came to France because of a dream, a dream that really set root in 2011 and not long after I quit my job and moved to the south of France. It was a whirlwind of some kind of chutzpah and faith I guess, knowing that something was waiting for me over here. I figured…
