Why Paris Syndrome is BS.

I first heard of Paris Syndrome when I was living in Korea. There were these chain bakeries and coffee shops all over the place with a Paris Theme. On every corner, you would find a 'Paris Baguette,' or 'Tous les Jours.' Much like you could find a Tim Horton's in Canada pretty much everwhere. In [...]

Top Travel Circuits: Backpacking in Europe

The best backpacking advice I can give you is simply to pack your bags and go.  Backpacking abroad has become something of a right of passage. Backpacking isn't something new, but it is becoming more and more popular, and even easier thanks to all the information we now have and the lowering costs of [...]

Ride Share your way through Europe – A Blablacar Review

Blablacar: The Site Blablacar is a rideshare website, or "carpooling community" as they call it. The interface is surprisingly simple; put in where you're leaving from and where you want to go and if there are people offering rides, they'll show up. There is one downside to this system though, you can't put in general [...]

Visiting Carcassonne

How I caught the Travel Bug: The Exchange

My first major international experience (i.e. outside of North America) happened when I was in the 11th grade. I was 16 years old and headed to France. I had some ideas on what to expect as my sister had completed an exchange in France just one year prior and I was going to live [...]

My stay at Au Nid du Thil: Beauvais

My stay in Beauvais was a short but enjoyable one. I arrived late in Beauvais after a short flight from Dublin. Originally wanting to take a bus to my hotel I found the bus stop at a time where there wouldn't be one arriving for another 40 minutes! I ended up in a taxi [...]

A Day in Beauvais

I arrived at Beauvais Airport (BVA) quite late. The vast majority of the people on the plane took the bus straight to Paris. I decided to stay and check out this city. Outside the airport was pretty dead. I didn’t notice any taxis and the only bus I saw was for Paris. The man [...]
