Spend that long weekend in Switzerland

There are those long weekends in Switzerland, and probably the whole of Europe too, that I often forget to plan for. If you are one of those who just realize that a long weekend is coming up in the first week of June and found out that all the reasonably priced flights to popular destinations like [...]

Restaurant Review: Fou de fafa (Avignon, France)

My partner and I went on a 6-day road trip last Easter, visiting 2 countries (France and Spain) or 5 towns/cities and more than 12 restaurants. Without a doubt, this was our favorite restaurant in the entire trip. I’m normally not a fan of number 1s in tripadvisor because they fail me most of the [...]

Hotel Review: Mercure Avignon Centre Palais des Papes

This is my favorite hotel in Avignon. It was my second time to stay at this hotel and I’d stay here again. My favorite part about this hotel is its excellent location. The hotel is smacked right in the heart of the Old Town and just few steps away from Palais des Papes. I also [...]

Anyway, moving on to my 2015 travel destinations, for spring, I went to Helsinki, Finland to visit [...]

April Destination: Saint-Genix-Sur-Guiers, & Annecy, Rhone-Alpes

An Easter weekend in Geneva is also a good opportunity to spend a long weekend up in the mountains or down the south. This year, the Easter weekend was my April destination excuse. It was also a friend’s birthday so we decided to just rent a house in Rhone-Alpes, just an hour drive from Geneva [...]

March Destination: Freiburg & Rust, Germany

On 27 March, two of my friends and I went on a road trip to Freiburg, Germany to de-stress by… riding roller coasters! I just submitted 2 essays as a final exam for my intelligence analysis class and I felt like I’ve used up all my intelligence in the process. So, my friends and I [...]
