A Castle, a Dragon and Perogis in Krakow

Krakow

After a very eventful summer, I can say that fall has officially arrived…because here I am lamo-potato sitting at home with a cold. The only one happy about this situation is my wallet, who’s finally getting a night off. So instead of eating my way through Paris, one bistro at a time, I’m going to get caught up on my…

First stop: Budapest

Travel

Budapest Hero's Square

I think I mentioned it a few times on this blog already, but earlier this summer I went to Eastern Europe on a trip with my parents.

Long weekend in Montpellier (and an AirBnB fiasco)

For once, I planned ahead and booked a trip a month ahead of time so that I could get reasonably-priced train tickets and accommodation. Even though I lived for an entire year in Grenoble, which is technically closer to the Mediterranean than Paris, I never went to the…

Weekend in Madrid

Madrid

I took a little weekend break (again) from Paris and its non-summer last week to go to Madrid! I’ve been to Spain before, but mostly in the south, so it was really fun to see the difference between that region and the capital. It was also really nice to go somewhere where it’s warm, dry and filled with blue skies…
