Bottomless Champagne and Topless Dancers

4 Comments 16 December 2014

You know you’re in Europe when a 12 year old boy is attending a Paris cabaret show. This is going to be a night he’ll remember for a while as he goes home slightly tipsy and dreaming of boobies. Somehow I have found myself in the odd situation of attending a dinner theater cabaret show [...]

5 Comments 09 December 2014

Jean-Pierre met me at the front of the building on a cobblestone street in the 3rd arrondissement. He smelled of cigarette smoke and was dressed very professionally.

Will the real Eiffel Tower Please Stand Up?

27 Comments 05 October 2010

Paris in Pictures

17 Comments 30 September 2010

My 36 hours in Paris were dedicated to photography; it was my only goal. Photography is still very new to me; I bought my first SLR camera in 2006 and took lessons to learn how to use the camera.  Therefore my first travels never really had a photography element to them.

Paris Then and Now

11 Comments 28 September 2010

I arrived in Paris in 2002 – it was the first time I set foot in Europe and only the 3rd country I had visited overall with my first passport.
