The French Countryside

After a pretty decent sleep at a hotel in St Malo, we were up and ready for brekkie early. We had breakfast at the hotel and I had a really strong coffee….had to add both sugar and honey in order to drink it!  Although we are still waking up at 3:30 am(hungry, hahha), we managed […]

The Start of our Adventure

After a nine hour long flight in a very stuffy airplane, we landed safely in Charles De Gaul Airport in Paris, France. It was 10:00 in the morning here in Paris, but only 1:00am in the morning Vancouver time. So while all of you were in bed asleep, we were just starting our day. It’s […]

The Joys of Shopping in a Foreign Land

Well, we have been shopping in Shanghai for quite some time now, but nothing prepared us for our adventure yesterday! We headed out to a mall called “Metro City”, one that we have been to before, but never really done any shopping in it. We usually use it as a meeting place, since it is […]
