The Best Rooftop View of Paris

I found the best rooftop view of Paris at the top of the Galeries de Lafayette. This truly is the best view of Paris. The greatest part of this excursion is that it’s free! One of my hostel mates recommended the Galeries de Lafayette. I took the metro to the Opera station and came outContinue reading “The Best Rooftop View of Paris”

6 Hours in Copenhagen

I’ve been to Copenhagen before and knew some of what I wanted to do on my layover in the city. I first took the metro to the Nørreport Station and first decided to grab a bite.

Charles de Gaulle Tips

Charles de Gaulle was not my favorite airport. It generally seemed like a poorly-designed mess. I was stressed the whole time I was there. Terminal 1 has a very odd design because there are people-movers in giant plastic tubes to take you from one floor to another. You can look out of the plastic liningContinue reading “Charles de Gaulle Tips”

Navigating Madrid Barajas

I’ve flown Iberia into Madrid Barajas Airport several times, mostly with layovers before flying to other countries in Europe. Madrid Barajas is one of the more complicated airports I’ve flown into especially when transferring.  Coming from the United States you’ll land at Terminal 4S and need to make your way to Terminal 4 if you’reContinue reading “Navigating Madrid Barajas”

California Bean has an allergen friendly menu. The main menu also notes if certain items has preservatives, dyes, sulphates, etc. I noticed that at several restaurants, which isContinue reading “The Three Best Restaurants in Munich”

Munich Art Scene

I spent most of my time in Munich at museums. I recommend getting an art day pass for 12 Euro. You get access to Alte Pinakothek, Pinakothek der Moderne, Museum Brandhorst, Sammlung Schack. Neue Pinakothek was included in the day pass, but it’s currently closed for renovations. I only ended up going to Pinakothek derContinue reading “Munich Art Scene”

Munich Overview

Logistics I booked my trip to Munich about nine months in advance because I knew I’d have MLK Day off of work and school. Google Flights alerted me that I could fly to Munich for $362 roundtrip, so I bought it! I had a short layover in Madrid, which was no bother to me. ForContinue reading “Munich Overview”

Cafe Juli

I decided to dedicate an entire blog post to Cafe Juli because it’s one of my favorite cafes in the world. I ate there twice over the course of a short, four-day trip in Aachen. I cannot speak highly enough about Cafe Juli. Cafe Juli is a vegetarian restaurant with organic products. If you areContinue reading “Cafe Juli”

Aachen Day 1

I had a full day in Aachen after I arrived via train. It was absolutely pouring, so my first stop was finding a warm cafe. I ended up at the Aachener Cafe, which was recommended on all the travel blogs I read prior to going to Aachen. It was right next to the Dom andContinue reading “Aachen Day 1”
