One Day In Bath, England

Located in southwest England, Bath is one of the country’s most beautiful and picturesque cities. It is known for its Roman Baths, built by Romans centuries before the creation of the UK, which helped the city develop into what it is today, as it is named after these baths. It is also known for its collection of Georgian architecture, much of which is built with locally mined Bath Stone. Bath was also the home of Jane Austen, a famous British writer, who wrote the classic ‘Pride & Prejudice’. To sum it up, Bath is pretty much the perfect quintessentially English city. Last summer, my family and I spent a day exploring the city, which I will be writing about in this post!

Dream Destinations: Western & Southern Europe

Western Europe, one of the world’s richest regions, is defined by its collection of medieval castles, from Germany’s Neuschwanstein Castle to Scotland’s Edinburgh castle, and its many world renowned landmarks, from the UK’s Big Ben to Paris’ Eiffel Tower. On the other hand, Southern Europe, or the Mediterranean, is known for being the birthplace of Western civilization, as well as being home to Italy’s Colosseum and Greece’s Pathenon.

Two Days In Geneva, Switzerland

Quite a few years ago now, my family and I visited the Swiss town of Geneva.

Geneva is the second most expensive city in all of Europe, and the second most populous city in Switzerland, both after Zürich. We stayed in the city, famous for its chocolate, luxury watches, and Swiss Army knives, for two days. In this post I’ll be running you through everything we did in the two days we stayed in Geneva for, from visiting the world famous Water Jet (Jet d’eau) to learning about the history of Swiss watches and clocks.

French Cities To Visit That Aren’t Paris

For obvious reasons, Paris is a must-visit city for any tourist visiting France. But what visitors are missing is a chance to really experience France as a whole. Paris is a great place to start your trip to France, but there are many more cities (including many not listed in this post) that deserve as much of your time as Paris. I originally planned to write this post about the best day trips from Paris, but all of these cities are worthy of much more than a day of your time. So, I present to you four cities in France, other than Paris, that you must visit!
