Went to Paris…for four hours

Going home from the seminar, I had to take a plane from Paris again. Only that this time, I went to see the Eiffel Tour! My friend and I had just enough time to go there and walk around the little park before we had to leave for the airport. So now, I can cross…

Château de Chambord or My Most Artistic Photograph So Far

The city exploration of Blois was followed by a trip to the nearby Château de Chambord! If you want, go read the surprisingly elaborate Wikipedia article. To make it short, it’s one of the “most recognizable” châteaux in the world that was built in the 16th century, possibly also according to plans by Leonardo da Vinci (he’s…

Doors of Blois (and More)

My travel plans couldn’t possibly be any tighter while…
