For the final part of our trip, we stayed in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris for a week. I’ll never get tired of Paris. From the glamorous shopping areas to the dusty streets, I love everything this city has to offer. Parisians are often misunderstood when Americans refer to them as “rude”. In fact, most […]
Being a huge soccer fan, Ky got us tickets to the Paris Saint Germaine game while we were in Paris. It was soooooo awesome!!! PSG played again Saint-Etienne and kicked their butts 5-0!!! It was pretty amazing that we got to see Ibrahimovic in action. He was on fire! We had such a great time […]
Madam Clicquot was a widow that took over her husband’s champagne business when he died. Like Gabriella Chanel, she continued her love’s legacy and made it into a house whole name. The Veuve Clicquot branding is well know around the world. You can spot that exquisite “Clicquot Yellow” right off the wine shelves. The tour […]
Our first champagne tour was at the Mumm winery. Being members of the Mumm club in Napa, we wanted to compare the bubbles from the two locations. Although the champagne was great, the experience of the tour was overall okay. Our guide could be a little more enthusiastic.
My experience at the Chanel Rue Cambon Boutique was a dream come true! When we entered the store, a fashion advisor was standing there waiting to greet us. As soon as we told her we were interested in purchasing a handbag, she walked us over to the accessories show room. Wow! It was packed with […]
Jardin botanique du Parc de la Tête d’Or is a government funded public park in Lyon. Not only does it contain the largest botanical garden in France, it also has a zoo! We saw hundreds of varieties of plants and flowers. My favorites were the rose garden and the endless patches of scrubs. Surprisingly, my […]
Like I said, we were in Lyon to taste the stars and Au 14 Fevrrier was the second Michelin stared restaurant we booked. Only servicing 14 people a night, they kept the place spacious and quiet with exceptional customer service. Au 14 Fevrrier means “the 14th of February” in French. Naturally, everything in the restaurant […]
Tetedoie of Lyon was our first Michelin stared restaurant in France. Located on a hill that overlooked the entire city, the view was amazing especially at night. The restaurant was decorated with whimsical and colorful artwork. We were a bit early when we arrived but the hostess had no issue seating us. There was already […]
Odeon of Lyon also know as the Ancient Theatre of Fourvière was a must-see attraction. Constructed by the Romans in the early bcs, the monument was still in great condition. Although it was considered as a “small” stadium, it could sit up to 10,000 people. I’m glad we wore comfortable shoes to climb the cobble […]
First night in Lyon, we had dinner at Aux Trois Filles. Located near the center of Old Lyon, the neighborhood was very lively. Street musicians played while we dined. It was like the story book version of being in France! The food was pretty decent. I especially enjoyed the duck!
