Au Revoir to Paris

Sacre Coeur Cathedral

Maki! My lovely and hard-working host in Paris

Stairs and hills. SF <3

Our trendy dinner place in Bastille


Louis XIV

His pimpin' pad - Versailles Palace

Hall of Mirrors

View from one of his rooms

Inside the Courtyard

Out back in front of the gardens

These gardens...!

Cute boys :P

Near the Aquarium

Finally walked to the Arc and took a proper picture

C'est Magnifique


Opera Bastille... couldn't get standing tickets :(

Paris is beautiful at 9:30am

Took a little wandering, but I finally found Notre Dame Cathedral

Met a fellow from Scotland on layover from New York, and I took him to the Eiffel Tower since I had a map.

Grand Palais near the Lourve

Mona Lisa = Hella tiny

Winged Victory - basically how I've been feeling since September

Musee Lourve

Paris Opera House from the back. It's under construction at the front :\

Paris Christmas Market along the Champs Elysees

Arc d'Triumphe in the distance


Gare de L'est train station. It was freezing...!

Snow on the tracks outside my window. 10 hour train ride!

Yes, apparently Filipino food exists in Hannover. It's a chain of Filipino foods written in German

Hannover City Hall and a frozen lake. I saw proper snowfall!


Christmas market :)

Afra and I enjoying some Guhlwein (hot mulled wine)

7:30 am: Ryanair = Europe's cheap Southwest. My ticket to Dublin was 2 pence, plus 10 pound service charge for credit cards. Ridiculous!

Trinity College, Dublin

St. Patrick's Cathedral

Definitely had to go to the Guinness Factory

The famous Temple Bar district of Dublin.
