My bonne chance this week was visiting a friend in Nimes who lives only a few blocks from the Stage 15 finish of the Tour de France.

Two days is never enough time to spend in Paris. Perhaps I tried to squeeze too much into my senses, because my brain definitely went into overload. All went perfectly as planned for my short visit to Paris. The only small mess-up happened when I realized the AIRBNB […]
