Listen, I am not a fan of Versailles. Is it gorgeous? Yes. Is the architecture and design unreal? Absolutely. Are the textiles and objects d’art incredible, breathtaking and impossible to believe? Oh yes. But guess who else thinks that. LITERALLY EVERY HUMAN ON THE PLANET. I have been to Versailles twice. The picture above was the courtyard when […]Read more "That Time I went to Versailles and it was EMPTY."
Here is what you can learn about me from this blog so far: 1. I love walking everywhere. 2. Based off this title alone, I am obviously a huge dork.

I’ll post about it another time, but needless to say, having access to it and not being able […]Read more "Familial Torture"
Awful day at work means I have an “Anywhere But Here” mentality today. So where do I want to be instead? Easy answer: I want to be walking along the cliff side in Howth, Ireland with my best friend. We were there in November 2012 (Which is crazy to think of when you look […]Read more "Let’s Go There"
Excuse the sensationalist title, but I couldn’t help it. I love Paris. I went for the first time in 2011, and then again in 2012, and again in 2013. I would be there right now, if I didn’t have to – you know – pay bills etc. My favourite part of Paris? Ok, that might […]Read more "I went to Paris and all I got was a hangover and +5 pounds."
