Ah Paris! Just hearing the name makes you think of fashion, romance, and everything delicious in life.
It has more recognisable monuments than anywhere else in the world, iconic architecture which is a history lesson in itself, one of the greatest art collections, fashion and a well deserved reputation for its cuisine.
Paris also has a hidden side, often reserved for locals.
One of my favourite things is sharing the hidden gardens, secret cafés and all the other magical spots that I have discovered over the past 11 years.
Once you discover all of this, there will be no doubt in your mind that this truly is the City of Love.
Originally from Canada there is not enough I can say about this ocean-fringed metropolis.
With neighbourhoods that each have their own personality and culture, we will explore and and enjoy memorable cultural and outdoor activities all framed by striking natural vistas.
Here is a place you can enjoy island life and whale watching or mountain life and witnessing the bears come out of hibernation. It is the most ethnically and linguistically diverse city in Canada and as with every Canadian city very friendly.
As soon as you set foot in the Loire Valley, you will know why it has become a Unesco World Heritage Site.
We will revisit history as we explore some of the most beautiful castles in France and learn why this was such an immense strategic importance to many kings, queens and nobles.
You will also discover why France is known for it’s food and wine.
Visit a vineyard and taste for yourself why the region’s wines (red, white, rosé and sparkling) are considered outstanding.
Of course, no trip to France is complete without the experience of eating at a Michelin restaurant, of which there are a few in the area.
What better place to learn Spanish than Spain?
We will be in Alicante. Its old town, Barrio de la Santa Cruz, has narrow streets, colored houses, and a wonderful nightlife scene.
Here we do everything from hiking and kayaking to eating, drinking and dancing!
