I got to Paris without a single idea of what there was to do. The only reason I even found myself in the city was because I had scored a $20 bus ticket from London and because, hello, it’s Paris. An aura of romance surrounds the city. Visions of fresh croissants, bottles of wine and […]
After my first couple days in London I felt like I needed a breather.
