Aix-en-Provence is famous for its elegant streets and squares, markets, beautiful people, and ability to embrace the good life. For a tourist, Aix is happily free of any obligatory turnstiles — there’s not a single ancient site to see. It’s just an attractive, prosperous town filled with 140,000 people — most of whom, it seems, know how to live well and look good. Experience Aix by strolling the Cours Mirabeau, people-watching in an outdoor café, tasting the local goat cheese in the market or taking part in a game of boules.

What can I say about Paris that hasn’t been said before? Well I’ll start off by saying it’s expensive! I happened to get to Paris at the end of my two week long trip which left me with little in my pockets. This made it a challenge for me to find cheap food throughout the day. Street vendors and croissants were my go-to food.
Chilling out on the steps of Montmartre was probably my favorite thing to do while in Paris. Such an amazing view and great people watching.
I’m not big on museums so we spent most of the time walking outside, admiring the architecture of the city.
