24 hours in Paris

For those of you in need of some last minute Christmas inspiration, how about the gift of time? Specifically 24 hours in my absolute favorite city, Paris. All you need to do is arrange your transportation, print out my itinerary and surprise someone. 24 hours isn't much time so let's not waste it standing in lines. Come with me and discover the not so discovered Paris.     If arriving by plane at CDG airport, the easiest (and quickest; just 40 minutes) way to get into the city is to take the RER B city train directly from the airport....

Thus, I love discovering new places to add to my ever-growing "must-see" list of things to see and do in the City of Light. My latest discovery makes me want to grab a sketch block, buy some paint and head straight to the banks of the river Seine to capture that light.

Savannah Bee Company

I can't believe it's already 2015 and I still haven't shared with you one of the highlights of my road trip this Summer through the USA. We flew from Zürich to Miami in August. After a few days of soaking up some very tropical sun and playing in the humungous bath tub called the Atlantic, my husband and I packed our three kids, five suitcases, one pound of sand and buckets of seashells into a very large car and started off on our first ever road trip through the USA. Final destination: Michigan. Our four-day, 2500 kilometer journey took us through Savannah,...
