  • Thank you, Stranger

    “Thank you for making my experience in Paris, and Europe for that matter, such a wonderful and heartwarming one. I have so much to thank you from the very moment I stepped into Paris.” Paris has been the first stop of my 6-month leg across Europe, the very first trip out of my home country […]

  • Paris, France- Spring Edition!

    Paris, France | Bel Around The World

    6 June, Sat – 7 June, Sun Off the (severely) beaten touristy tracks. Of life, vibrance, and excitement! I absolutely love these set of photos! So inspired by the lovely sunny weather and the life that people are now exuding. Everything looks so incredible, from the advertisements to the otherwise monochromatic Seine. Paris had been […]

  • Eze Village, France

    Eze, oh Eze, is another day trip I made from Nice. It’s situated between Nice and Monaco. Eze is a little village with stone walls, narrow cobbled streets and exotic shops. I was profoundly excited upon entering the village after the laborious hike up. LOVE the clear crystal blue/ turquoise colours and white foamy waves! […]

The difference between both beaches is the sandy beach instead of pebbles that encapsulates the sea. The waters are SO BLUE, there are actually different shades of blue in the waters. I have never seen […]

  • Lyon, France

    lyon, france

    Lyon can be characterised by orange roofs and shallow steps, I conclude. The passers-by are more polite than the North. They greet you as you pass them by. There is a huge population of school-going children and teenage athletes. A stark contrast compared to the retiring population I noticed in Nice. There were quite a […]

  • Couchsurfing in Lyon, France

    Soumaya is by far one of the best hosts I have encountered. She was really considerate and thoughtful, picking me up the moment I arrived at the train station. My first thought was shock at the massive size of the house, by France’s standards. She could even house a TV in an apartment that was fit […]
