FRENCH FOOD: MUST EAT IN PARIS

FRENCH FOOD: MUST EAT IN PARIS

French food – you can never go wrong with French food. From French onion soup, des escargots, duck in all forms, croissants and the over 1000 different pastries. French cuisine is everything! So while backpacking on a budget, here’s a few delicacies I tried out and would highly recommend. We did not do any gourmet or over the top restaurants. No snails either. I would eat snails only if nobody aforementioned it. That being said I am yet to taste…

Dining areas: Hey good peoples. Let’s talk design today, shall we? I will take you through the making of a dining room. I grew up without a dining area. We would eat in our living room.

Geneva is beautiful, well every place I go to ends up being beautiful. It is also costly, the nature and Old world architecture however compensates for the uber costly Swiss stuff.
