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.

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 [...]

Birthday celebration in Milan I’ve only been to Milan once and [...]

A couple of friends and I just spent a weekend in Lyon to relax and take a break from our routines. Whenever I organize this kind of weekend getaway with my friends, I always prioritize finding a good accommodation. For this trip, I had to look for a hotel that: 1) close to the train [...]

Brittany, France Part 2: Josselin and Rochefort-en-Terre

On our last day in Brittany, from Vannes, we drove to Josselin and Rochefort-en-Terre before heading to the airport in Nantes. But before that, we again decided to check out the local coffee shops in Vannes for breakfast again. Since it was a Sunday, we couldn’t find an open café that was close to our [...]
