Aussie-style cafes in Paris

Aussie-style cafes in Paris

For a country that has a reputation for its cafes I was surprised at how average coffee in France was when I first arrived. Sure, the cafes are great for people watching, with rows of chairs lined up in theatre-style so you can watch the world go by. As far as the actual coffee goes […]

St Martins Canal

Passing through the grim outer suburbs of Paris on the train from CDG Airport I wondered if I made a mistake coming back for just one day. Was Paris as wonderful as I remembered it to be, or was it a trick of the mind that tends to romanticise places long after you have been? […]
