The Pullman Hotel – Eiffel Tower

Traveling back to Paris was my first international solo trip, so I wanted to splurge on a nice hotel with a view, and within walking distance from the Eiffel Tower. After searching the internet, I found where I wanted to stay, The Pullman Hotel near the Eiffel Tower. No, this isn’t a sponsored post, I paid for my room, and it was well worth it. Being a female, alone in a city I hadn’t been to in almost thirty years (and the first time with my fluent French speaking aunt), I wanted to feel safe. At my age, I’m wasn’t doing a hostel and or sharing a bathroom. Since I also have some hip problems and arthritis, I wanted to be close of my main attraction. Only a few blocks away from the Eiffel Tower was just perfect for me. After I bought my plane ticket, I booked my hotel and upgraded to a room with a view.

Snapshot Saturday 2015 #3 – The Eiffel Tower

An overcast day in Paris is still a fabulous day to visit the City of Light. The weather became a little moody on my last afternoon, which really helped with the lines to the top of the tower. This is a view of the Eiffel Tower from the Pont de la Concorde with Pont Alexandre III in the distance.

Secret Cottage Tour – A Day Trip in the Cotswolds

Are you searching for the perfect day trip away from London? Look no further. The Secret Cottage Tour in the Cotswolds is a wonderful getaway. I recently took this day trip, which was easily accessible by train from London from the Paddington Station to the Moreton-in-Marsh station. While relaxing on the train, I saw the landscape slowly change from the hustle and bustle of the city, to the picturesque landscape of the country. Our guides for the day, Becky and Ian, picked up our group from the Moreton-in-Marsh station. We toured a few spots in the country and then went to Becky and Robin’s beautiful thatched cottage for pastries with tea or coffee. What a wonderful home they live in which they have opened up to host guests!
