A Two-Day Trip to Giverny & Versailles

Introduction

If you are in town for Paris, I recommend venturing outward and spending a day in Giverny and a day at Versailles. As much as I adore Paris (and hopefully will finish compiling my Paris notes soon!), there is also so much to see outside of the city. Giverny and Versailles are top of the list, both due to the ease of getting there as well as the refreshing perspectives they give. I did this trip over a weekend as a solo traveler, and it was one of the most memorable weekends during my time in Europe!

A Few Summer Days in Montreal & Quebec City

Introduction

Located in Canada’s predominantly French speaking province, Québec, Montréal and Québec City are both beautiful and historic. Montreal has a metropolitan vibe with cool urban projects such as Underground City and Habitat 67, and combined with the cobblestoned, French colonial Vieux-Montréal, becomes a vibrant and charming city. Quebec City, on the other hand, is romantic with the Château Frontenac, the impressive Citadelle, distinct streets of Champlain filled with florals, bistros and European charm.
