Destination: Carcassonne, France

Bonjour! Since hearing about this historic, medieval-walled city, I had been keen on visiting Carcassonne while in France.

Bonjour! After my visit at the musée des Augustins, I headed out to explore more of the city center, all the while wait for the sun to set. Considering that the icons of Toulouse-- pont Neuf and the Capitole-- lit up when it got dark, I wanted to wait to capture them in all of …

Destination: Paris, France (2018– Part 2)

Bonjour! Following my morning's visit of Paris, I decided to get lunch near rue Mouffetard, one of the lively streets near the Latin Quarter. Of all things that I could've eaten for lunch, I chose Korean food, namely because I really missed it. Although I didn't have high expectations for Korean cuisine in France, I'd …

Greetings! While I hadn't been active on Netflix for a long while, it wasn't until earlier this year that I really go into it. Seriously, it must be the winter weather, just because I've been holed up in my room just binge-watching series after series. Ones I've seen so far have been pretty good, and …

Happy March 2018!

Welcome to the first day of March! Winter is slowly starting to give way to the spring, which offers more warmth, longer days, and flourishing nature (although there will be lots of rain to come until April...). Usually, I like March for the reasons stated above, but I also like it, because it happens to …

Destination: Valencia, Spain

My travels this past December came to an end with the final stop in Valencia. It's the third-largest city in Spain, and it's home to hosting many international events (in sporting, the arts and sciences...), as well as its signature dish, the paella. Having had been interested in visiting this Spanish city, I was looking …
