Villefranche-sur-Mer

Last year I had the wonder opportunity of exploring a small town on the Mediterranean coast of France called Villefranche-sur-Mer. I spent the whole day biking, hiking, and exploring the beautiful coastal town and after my long filled day it became one of my best traveling experiences.

The town is located just outside of Nice, France and it is the perfect size of quaint yet lively. I explored every inch of that town on foot as well as on wheels and made memories that truly lasted a lifetime.

The reason this day trip to a town, few in the United States have probably ever heard, made such an impact on me, was due to the fact that I went there and explored without any clear instructions or any clear path. I did my own thing and had my own agenda and went wherever I wanted to go, and it was such a liberating experience.

From Paris with Love

Paris is one of those magical places that you can never get enough of. Everywhere in the city has character and the flow of the people on the streets give an extra touch to such an amazing place.

The first time I visited Paris I was overwhelmed and had no idea what to expect, I enjoyed it, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I originally thought. The two times I have been to Paris since have both been some of my favorite trips of all time. The air, the locations, and the language all add to reasons why Paris is one of my favorite places I’ve ever visited.

Sacré-Coeur has one of the most breathtaking views in all of Paris.

The Arc De Trimophe and the Champs-Élysées are most dos on anyones Paris vacation.

Paris is a city that I will never get enough of and it’s a place that I will always want to visit. I will never get enough of this beautiful city. Paris je t’aime.
