Wednesday’s Bloggers Round-up time again. After visiting Budapest and Sofia and reading Andrea’s post on Bucharest in Rear View Mirror, I’m ready to add Romania to my travel destinations. As you know, I’m not a fashionista, but fortunately, other bloggers are covering Paris Fashion Week. I’m referring you to Sylvia’s first post on the subject in Finding Noon but don’t stop there – check out her other more recent posts. And so that you won’t stop using the train to go from Charles de Gaulle airport to the city centre just because we nearly had a backpack stolen, here’s a comparison of travelling methods by Jill from Gigi’s French Window. Enjoy!
Romania’s Outrageous Palace of the Parliament
by Andrea from Rear View Mirror (formerly Destination Europe), a fellow Australian who, after 6 years of living in France, has given up herParis apartment to live a nomadic life slowing travelling around Europe, experiencing each destination like a local.
Upon setting eyes on Bucharest’s Palace of the Parliament, I was slightly underwhelmed. Yes, it’s a massive building but it didn’t strike me as being particularly remarkable or memorable.

I’ve got Le Gastro, which is a charming local way of saying a tummy bug, so it wasn’t sure that I was going to be able to drag myself out into the glorious Paris sunshine and start shooting, but I had worked so hard getting the fashion show invites and I really do love seeing all those creative types out there doing their thing, I simply could not stay put. So while all the other girls were out there sporting their ‘it’ bags, I was sporting the bags under my eyes and taking as many clichés as I could get away with. Here is what I saw yesterday: Read more
Charles de Gaulle airport to city centre
by Jill from Gigi’s French Window, French ponderings from an Australian who must have been French in another life
The first couple of days on arrival in Paris are always a mixed bag….EXHAUSTION being the first thing that comes to mind!
But then there is also that feeling on stepping from the flight into Charles de Gaulle airport… for me, it’s a wonderful sensory overload……
I close my eyes and breathe in deeply…..there is nowhere else I could be….this is Paris! There is a certain something in the air and I love it! Below is a Charles de Gaulle airport promo video you may enjoy…must admit they paint a very ‘friendly’ picture…….;) Read more
