The next day in Paris saw us visiting yet another museum (something we should have realised wasn’t a good idea after we established Morgan wasn’t a fan of them!).

This time we went to The Pompidou Centre, and after the confusion that was getting in, paying for tickets, working out where you start (turns out it doesn’t really matter where you start) and being told I couldn’t go in with my large rucksack and having to go join yet another queue for free luggage holding we were finally ready to explore.

Up first was an exhibit about an architect I can no longer remember the name of, I enjoyed looking at these model and all his plans for the buildings he created, I really liked how some of them looked like they were created from what seemed to be a…

Giant Stone Head

Unfortunately I can’t remember what this park was called or what is was near (not a good start, sorry), but what I can say is that on our second day in Paris we walked to Louvre from our hotel which according to Google Maps is 5.7km away!

It was a very eventful trip, our hotel was a hop, skip and jump away from the river bank so we decided to have a nice stroll to the Louvre (which we knew was close to the river). So we set out on our epic quest and it was such a nice walk, even though we were on the outskirts of the city so not much was going on on the river.

After about 20 minutes of walking though we came to a bridge crossing the river and underneath the bridge was a homeless community…

Recently purchased a GoPro to help document my travels and I will be posting videos before I go to as I get used to it and learn how to play around with it.

Editing is one of my stronger suits due to editing my DSLR videos, that said there isnt much “Editing” on the below video as I’m still wrapped my head around the GoPro Studio Software, but may have to go back to Adobe Premiere.

Enjoy!

In my last post I spoke about my journey to Paris (and especially my love for Tube systems) at length. In this post I aim to let you all know about what I got up to on the first day!

Paris Part Deux Featured Image

I thought for the first day it would be nice to make our way to the Sacré-Cœur, I’d seen the pictures and liked how high up it was and thought it would be a nice first thing to do as we would then get to see a landmark, one of the famous churches AND get a high up view of the city all in one go!

So off we went hopping onto the aforementioned tube station and emerging in a brand new place from there we got reorientated and set off on our merry way. Up in this part of town the buildings were pretty close together and you were walking…

Five Important Reasons to Keep a Travel Journal

New post on a travel blog I’ve started :)

Originally posted on BRB, Off backpacking.:

Travel JournalThat up there, in case you hadn’t figured it out yet, is my journal from my time doing Camp America during the first summer of University.

From June to August, 2010, I was employed by Trail’s End Camp as the photographer and digital web staff. My role had me walking around the camp taking pictures of the children at their activities and getting them onto the computer ready to be uploaded that evening so the parents at home could see them.

As well as doing that, I had to write articles for the website to do with the weather and the goings on at the camp that day.

It was an extremely fun job and it’s what gave me itchy feet to want to get out and explore the world. Coming back from camp I had 3 more years of University to complete and since then I’ve struggled to get…

Paris Day 1

(Hello! I am going to be posting up what I got up to on my recent trip to Paris and breaking it down into bite size chunks for you all to read, and will post them regularly. Keep up to date by following the blog or subscribing via email and follow me through the wonderful city of Paris.)

This was the lovely rainy view out of my hotel window at around 6am on December 20th.

I had decided to drive to the airport instead of relying on friends and family to drop us off, that way I would have my car waiting for me when I returned home, and could drive straight back instead of waiting around and hunting down family upon the return.

The night before the 20th (the 19th for those keeping count, a Friday) it was supposed to be my works Christmas meal, which I was going…
