Which One Should I See? The Musee du Louvre Or The Musee d’ Orsay

By all means if time permits, see both the Louvre and Orsay Honestly, It’s almost a sin to go to Paris and not see the Mona Lisa in all her undersized glory. Which BTW, was the biggest shocker when I saw her for the first time. She is like the size of a piece of paper without the frame. In my humble opinion if you have limited time in Paris and need to choose one over the other, my money is on the Orsay. Here’s the reasons why. The Orsay is a much more manageable museum…

How To Survive The Roommate From Hell When Traveling

Are you going on a group tour solo and decided to room with another solo traveler? Faced with wanting to save some money while traveling I had gone against my better judgment and signed up to double up on a room for my first trip to Paris. I had just one other solo traveler to choose from. She was in her 80’s and Paris was the one place she had never been to. First I told my travel guide no way, but the closer I got to the trip I thought -what the heck, I’ll meet her and…

Foodie Friday- Elsie Mae’s Bakery and Cannery In Kenosha Wisconsin

What’s a world without pie? Where can you go in Wisconsin to get the best pie? I found the answer. (at least in my opinion)  Elsie Mae’s Bakery and Cannery in Kenosha. I was recently lucky enough to get to visit this place and meet the owner Kelly, when I was in Kenosha, Wisconsin on my 7 Wisconsin road trips in 7 days tour. I found out about Elsie Mae’s pies when one of her cookie dough pies was included in a goodie bag when I took the Kenosha tour during the Women In…

Chasing Waterfalls In Marinette County, Wisconsin

Whoever said you can’t chase waterfalls has never been to Marinette County Wisconsin It has been my goal for quite some time to do the waterfalls tour in Marinette County.  When I got some time off work and decided to do 7 Wisconsin road trips in 7 days, the waterfalls tour was on my list. There are 14 waterfalls total on this self guided tour.  Maps are available at most gas stations in Marinette County,  I had been up at Pembine, Wisconsin the week before ATVing with my family, so I picked up the free map and Marinette…

Things To Do In Paris – A Wine Tasting At O Chateau

Wine tasting in Paris? Yes please! There is an overwhelming amount of things to do and see in Paris.  A first trip often includes all the main things- the Eiffel tower, Louvre, Musee Orsay, Notre Dame, a Seine River Cruise, and a whole host of other “must sees.” I’ll be the first to admit that you can go absolutely crazy trying to see and do it all.  And really those that have been to Paris multiple times will tell you to slow down and just wander, get off the beaten path and just savior it.  It…

5 Ways To Conquer Post Vacation Blues

We’ve all been there.  You spend weeks planning a much needed vacation to your dream destination and in the blink of an eye, it’s over.  The post vacation blues set in.  Post travel depression is a very real thing compounded if you are returning to a mediocre job or any other less than perfect things going on in your life. While we travel, we are often our best versions of ourselves.  We are happy, relaxed, (this can be debated depending on what you are doing and where you are) and away from the mundane tasks of…

Going To Paris? Rent An Apartment With Paris For Rent

  Are you planning a Paris Vacation? Sure you could book a hotel in Paris, but why not feel like a local and book a Paris apartment rental? I did just that on my last trip to Paris. Deciding which agency to book with was not easy, but after looking at various rentals through a number of agencies, I went with Paris For Rent.  I am a die hard Rick Steves fan and because his Paris guidebook recommends Paris for Rent, I was sold.  After all who can you trust for great travel info than the master himself? Why Paris…

Hidden Places To See In Paris- Rue Cremieux

If you are looking for a hidden gem in Paris, Rue Cremieux is it! Rue Cremieux is a quiet pedestrian street tucked away just off of bustling Rue de Lyon. This street is roughly a 15 minute walk from Bastille in the 12th Arrondisement. It’s easy to miss and only takes about 5 minutes to walk it’s whole length, but I classify it as one of my must sees in Paris. The colorful cottage facades, make Rue Cremieux a breath of fresh air from the neutral beige and gray architecture of the rest of the city…
