Tips for Renting a Car in France

When I started researching things to do in Paris on a recent mother/daughter trip, the list of things we wanted to do extended beyond the city. So I started looking at our transportation options. There are quite a bit of options for public transportation, but in order for you to have the most flexibility in your schedule and to not be at the mercy of a train schedule, renting a car will give you the freedom to get around. You can visit smaller towns and make countryside stops or detours to markets and wineries you might have otherwise passed by.

The Secret Louvre Entrance That Will Save You Time!

The Louvre is arguably the most famous museum in the world housing priceless works of art like the Mona Lisa. With more than 10 million visitors annually, the Louvre sees a LOT of visitors daily, and with a lot of space inside to spread out {more than 60,000 square meters!} the most popular attractions can feel crowded but you can often find hidden spaces to spread out. However, there are only four entrances that every visitor has to funnel through. Everyone has seen the main pyramid entrance, and if it's your first visit, you may think this is your best {only?} option. But I'm here to share with you the secret Louvre entrance that will save you time and get you to all the best art pieces before the crowds!



Sky Lagoon or Blue Lagoon in Iceland?

When we traveled to Iceland on a 24-hour Icelandair stopover, we knew we couldn't visit without stopping at one of the local geothermal pools. The first one that comes to mind is of course Blue Lagoon. It's the oldest and definitely the most well-known, but after doing some research we found that there was a new kid on the block and it was getting some good reviews. I probably was overthinking our decision, but in case you have to make the same decision and choose a visit to Blue Lagoon or Sky Lagoon, here are the factors we used to decide.



Making the Most of a 24 Hour Stopover in Iceland: Tips for Hiring a Local Guide

When I found out that we could take a trip to Paris and include a stopover in Iceland, I knew I had to book the ticket! Icelandair started doing a stopover for those flying to or from major European countries back in the 60s, but it didn't really start to gain popularity until the 2000s. And heck, even then, I'd say most travelers don't even know this exists! If you book your ticket on Icelandair and select the option for stopover {it's easy to miss, so take caution when you book your tickets!}, you can stay in Iceland anywhere from 24 hours to 7 days for no additional fee. Once I started researching things to do, I realized that 24 hours may not be enough time to see what we wanted to see. At least in the most traditional way. I started to get frustrated, thinking that maybe all we'd get to see was a geothermal lagoon and the airport hotel! But I didn't give up and let me tell you, we saw more of Iceland than most get to see! Want to know how? Keep reading!
