A weekend break in Paris…

…is always a good idea! 🙂  Bonjour beautiful people! Among many wonderful things about living in Luxembourg, one is its privileged location with many opportunities for nice trips. You can easily reach remarkable and lovely places in other countries on a day trip or weekend. Today’s highlights are some images from Paris last weekend.

We took the opportunity to try the delicious choux of the pâtisserie “Odette Paris“. We ordered a selection choux with different flavours and all of them were quite good. Coffee and hot chocolate were also good. A very nice place!

Speeding up to the top of CN Tower, Toronto.

Hello beautiful people! Highlights today for the colossal CN Tower in Toronto.

CN1

The entrance ticket is included in the Toronto City Pass, which is also sold here and is great value for money to see the top 5 attractions in Toronto. We hear it can get pretty crowded. We were probably lucky then, as we did not face any queues and could spend as much time as we wanted on each of the two levels. It was a clear day and views were amazing! This is definitely a must visit!

Casa Loma, the house on the hill in Toronto, Ontario.

Bonjour beautiful people! Today I would like to share with you some pictures from Casa Loma, a special tourist attraction in Toronto, Canada.

Casa Loma is a Gothic Revival style house and gardens that is now a museum and landmark. It was built as a residence for financier Sir Henry Mill Pellatt and took three years and $3.5 million to be built. Wow…I say…Wow! And it is really amazing!

The house is filled with artworks from Canada and around the world. Casa Loma stood as a monument to its creator. The unique architecture has also made it a highly desirable location for film, including the X-Men series and Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Chicago and more. The house is majestic! With soaring battlements and secret passageways, it paid homage to the castles and knights of days gone by.
