Bordeaux

Just a few hours southwest of Paris is the lovely wine region of Bordeaux and probably my favorite destination on this trip. I enjoy drinking wine but would never say I have a refined palette or know a ton about wine. But one tour through Margaux and I felt like a master sommelier. It seems…

Oops…I Ended up in Paris Again

I have been to Paris a few times since my first time in 2001 when I was 17. Every time I go I have a totally different experience because I am a different age and with different people.  Reid and I did SO much in just a few days and my feet were definitely yelling…

Champagne…the True Bubbles Region

There is sparking wine and then there is champagne! Champagne can only come from Champagne so all those other bubbles you are drinking are just sparkling wine but can still be absolutely delicious! There are multiple ways to champagne taste through the region which is just about an hour outside of Paris. You can go for…

Bonjour Paris

Sometimes part of the fun of traveling is the journey in between places. I took the bus from London to Paris and we crossed the English Channel by ferry. It was an absolutely beautiful day and the perfect opportunity for a mini photo shoot and a nice break from sitting on the bus for 9…

A weekend in Paris with my sister

My sister was working in Versailles and some of the surrounding gardens for the last 6 weeks. Our parents decided that since we were both in Europe, we needed to meet up for a weekend of sister time in Paris. My sister has been living the life of luxury in beautiful chateaus, while I have…

Versailles

In 2001 my parents took me to Versailles and I recall enjoying the gardens and thinking the palace was absolutely massive. 13 years later, I returned and had a new perspective and new appreciation of what the place was actually about. I found that I was able to appreciate the art and the history quite…

Paris by day and Paris by night

A few days in Paris and I feel like I have been here forever! I met up with a friend from home who was in town and had some delicious foie gras and rose and a wonderful day exploring the area. As we were walking back, we stumbled upon Notre Dame and the Madeleine. I…

From France to Switzerland

It has been a lazy last couple of days. We took the TGV train form Nice to Geneva which was an absolutely beautiful and very easy 6 hour train ride. It wasn’t all just French Riviera beauty. There was graffiti along the way that I found to be very interesting. I wish I knew what it…

From St. Remy to Nice, the adventure continues

Once again, just call me taxi cab Jenna. We drove over 300 kilometers today to get from St. Remy to Nice with a stop in Bandol. Feel free to take a look at my crazy route. We only went to Bandol in the hunt for some delicious rose of course. We had a little adventure…

To Gordes and beyond!

France is quite a large country and Southern France has a ton of areas to explore. We chose to take a day trip to Gordes and Bonnieux and we were not disappointed! Somehow I was appointed to be the driver along this beautiful countryside. I think living in LA gave me the one up on…
