We recently spent a long weekend in Amsterdam. This was our first visit to the city and I am not sure it could have lived up to my expectations.

Arc de Triomphe

We took advantage of our Paris museum passes to climb to the top of the Arc de Triomphe and enjoy the view.

Musée de l’Orangerie

Monet’s Waterlilies in the Musée de l’Orangerie, were a highlight of our trip to Paris.

Summer in Paris

We spent four days in Paris over the summer. These videos highlight some of the places we visited.

Exploring Home

It was the week before Christmas. Before visiting family for the traditional family celebrations, we took our chance to explore a little more of the United Kingdom.

Bourg-en-Bresse Sightseeing

Bourg-en-Bresse was small enough to be easily walkable, and there was more to see than I expected.


The picturesque village of Oingt offers great views across the Beaujolais vineyards

Marseille Highlights

A little while ago, before the summer sun arrived in Lyon, we visited Marseille for the weekend. Here is a short video of the highlights.

Fortified York

York is enclosed by impressive, well-preserved city walls

2013 in Review: Travel

For our second year in Lyon, I wanted to take advantage of our location to travel more.
