Paris, Part II

by Michelle April 30, 2015

The second day when we were in Paris was also my birthday. Turning 26 was pretty scary – especially that moment when you realize that now you’re closer to 30 than 20! It was similar to when I was 19 and was anticipating that big turn to 20, where I’ll no longer be a teen. I still remember then I […]

Exploring the Munich Botanical Gardens

by Michelle April 2, 2015

Last weekend (before Southern Germany got stuck in this continuous storm that’s still brewing outside), Miriam and Yann’s parents all came to visit us in Munich. We all had such a fun time, although one thing that really stood out was our trip to the Botanical Gardens. It’s near the Nymphenburg Palace, which I’ve been to, but somehow we never […]

Instafamous! 6 quick tips on taking the perfect Instagram photo

by Michelle March 26, 2015

I love Instagram. It’s by far my most favourite social media platform. Scrolling through my Instagram feed always feels like stepping into a candy shop. I love following other travel, fashion and fitness bloggers and all their perfectly filtered photos are just the fix I need to draw on for my daily dose of inspiration. I’m not “instafamous” by any means […]

You know spring has arrived in Germany when…

by Michelle March 23, 2015

The first day of spring was officially March 20th, which many of my friends and family in Canada were extremely happy about, especially after all the dreadful -30-40 days they’ve had this winter! While this winter has been pretty warm in Germany (although winters here overall tend to be overcast and grey), the sunny and warm weather we’ve been having […]

Happy Friday the 13th! Are you ready for some strange facts?

by Michelle March 13, 2015

Friday the 13th doesn’t come around too often, so when it does it always seems to make that given Friday even more interesting (or a day to be extra cautious depending on how superstitious you are!). Around the world, many countries see Friday the 13th as an unlucky day…even in Germany where the people are oh so practical. Although I […]

The Cliffs of Moher

by Michelle March 10, 2015

Every country has a special “must-see” and the Cliffs of Moher are definitley that in Ireland. It’s no wonder too that the cliffs draw more than a million visitors from all over the world annually! I’ve seen photos of the cliffs before going, and I especially love the fact that depending on the weather, whether it’s bright and sunny, or […]

My Top 5 things to do in Dublin, Ireland

by Michelle March 1, 2015

My trip to Ireland happened pretty spontaneously when my American friend Tania decided on doing a Eurotrip for a month, and we were deciding on where we’d like to meet up. A Ryanair flight to Dublin at an irresistible price came under my radar and that settled that. My Canadian friend Miriam who’s currently living in Zurich decided to join […]

My Little Roman Holiday

by Michelle February 9, 2015

Rome feels like a city stuck in time. It feels like no matter where you walk in the city, you’re always going to bump into something that was built like 2000 years ago. Yep, that’s pretty amazing. We took an overnight train from Verona to Rome and got to Rome super early at 6am. We were so ambitious that after […]
