Things to do in Lille

Visiting Lille wasn’t my first priority on my list of places to visit. I’m actually wondering why. Lille is only one hour away by train from Paris (where I live) and less than three hours away by car. Moreover, Lille is located between Paris, Brussels, London, and Amsterdam so it’s easy to get there. You […]

3 days in Amsterdam

Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, is one of the most visited cities in Europe. I honestly understand why! Although there’s 800000 inhabitants living there, the city is enjoyable. Amsterdam is also the cultural capital of the Netherlands. Indeed, there are dozens of museums in the city, some of them being cultural, others quirky. Oh […]

Visit to Efteling theme park

I spent a day at Efteling theme park. Wait what!? You don’t know Efteling!? This theme park, surrounded by the forest, is located in Kaatsheuvel, not far from the border with Belgium. Eftelins is about 70 kilometers (43 miles) south of Rotterdam and 100 kilometers (62 miles) south of Amsterdam. Efteling is known to everyone […]

Things to do in Rotterdam

Rotterdam is the second largest city in the Netherlands after Amsterdam. When visiting the Netherlands, a lot of people ignore Rotterdam, and just go to Amsterdam. That’s a huge mistake! Rotterdam is a wonderful city, and you have to go visit Rotterdam if you’re in the Netherlands. My visit to Rotterdam was full of surprises, […]

“They’re all fake as fuck in Austria, I’ve never seen that before!“. That’s what told me an Irish guy I met in Prague when I told him I was about to spend 3 days in Vienna. “Oh and you’re French too!? They HATE French people! They think YOU french guys are hypocrites because you call them […]

3 days in Munich

Beers, beers, beers… I think I didn’t have that many beers in a looong time. Actually, it’s hard not to drink any when you’re in Bavaria, exactly in Munich, where people drink beers just like we drink water. Yes, when you order a beer here in a typical bavarian bar, the waiter doesn’t bring you […]

Things to do in Bern

20 swiss francs (18 euros) for a little salad and a bottle of water. I knew life was expensive in swiss but damn, not that expensive! So here I am in Switzerland, in Bern exactly, for a few days. And, not surprisingly, I didn’t see any backpacker. For those who travel on a budget, it’s […]

2 days in London

Saying that I like London is an euphemism. I love this city! A bit like Paris, everytime you visit London, you discover new things. Moreover London is a cosmopolitan, modern and dynamic city. You’ll find there stores, restaurants, pubs, museums, markets, parks… I love the vibe and the atmosphere there, the London state of mind… […]
