Paris on a budget? Sounds kind of crazy doesn’t it. But, from someone who has been four times I can tell you that it is possible. And possible in a good way, not the sleep in a 20 bed dorm and eat packaged noodles kind of way because, let’s be honest, that’s never fun. So, how do you do it? Well, I’ve picked up plenty of little tricks over my visits that I’m happy to share. Now, of course, visiting Paris will never be ‘cheap’, especially in comparison to places in Southeast Asia...

A night at Le Moulin Rouge: is it really worth it?

Paris is known as a romantic destination for couples but it’s actually one of my favourite cities for solo travel. In fairness, I didn’t expect to love Paris. I actually only went for the first time in 2011 because I heard of the Christmas Markets but it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the cobblestone streets, boulangeries, and the way the Eiffel Tower sparkles like a diamond at night (fun fact: technically it’s illegal to photograph that because its considered art). Sure,...
