Chez Marie

Today a photo of a restaurant showed up on my Dashboard. When I saw it I knew exactly where it was from as we ate there while we were in Paris. 

Chez Marie is a small, inviting restaurant in the Montmarte neighbourhood of Paris. Looks like they got a bit of graffiti on their walls.

French onion soup… or in France is it just called onion soup?

Pâté

Lasagna

I wish I was able to spend more time in Florence. The city had a great atmosphere with many friendly people just hanging out. This was taken on our hostel’s rooftop terrace at twilight.

Imagine this scene in Manorola, Italy with ABBA blasting away and people jumping off the rocks in front having a great time.

I’ll be posting some leftover photos and photos I was undecided on during last month’s posting spree.
How many different types of produce can you spot?

Day 29 - Even with our limited time in London, Jenn had to find time for some shopping. Here’s Topshop on the crowded streets of Oxford Circus. London is a multi-cultural city and it’s quite evident from this photo. When we weren’t shopping, we checked out the sites of the Tower of London (not really a tower) and Tower Bridge. Oh, and spent time taking photos in red telephone booths. 
Unfortunately the journey ends here as we flew out the next morning back to Vancouver.
Putting this together at times proved to be quite difficult. Sometimes there wasn’t much in terms of content because we didn’t do much on that particular day. Other times there were so many things we did, I didn’t know what to show. It was fun though, and I hope it was enjoyable for you, the viewer.

Day 28 - The beginning of the end. The way our flights worked out, we would be flying back to Vancouver from London, England. So, we hopped on an airplane from ATH (Athens International Airport) and took off to London. We would have three nights and only one full day there. Obviously not enough to do everything London has to offer, but we’ll take what we can get.
London is extremely expensive and old. We found a hotel called easyHotel, run by the same company as easyJet. Cheap rates and an extremely small space, but in a central area. Upon booking, you are given four options:
Small room with no window
Small room with window
Standard room with no window
Standard room with window
We took option #1 as we were only going to be there for a few nights. The hotel room was literally a bed surrounded by 3 walls, a hallway no more than a few steps, and a bathroom the size of an airplane bathroom. There wasn’t enough room for two people to walk at once. There was a TV in the room, but £10 for 24 hours to operate it. Other additional charges were: internet, maid service, washing of towels, early check-in all come to mind. Despite this, the location was fantastic, within walking distance of Buckingham Palace. We did exactly that, checked out Big Ben, Palace of Westminster, Oxford Street, and Westminster Abbey, as pictured here.
This photo is part of a set where I am posting one photo a day for that day exactly one year ago during my Eurotrip in 2010.
