347. Paris | George V

Paris in the rain
Cabbing around Paris in the rain. I was by the Eiffel Tower when it started raining, so I got in a cab to stay dry. I had the driver drive all around the city so at least I was able to do a bit of sightseeing as well. Paris is so beautiful in the rain (as it is in any type of weather!). Then I got out wherever the rain stopped. At that moment I suddenly realized how much of a high-maintenance traveller I am. Or just how much I hate being out in the rain.

I have exactly ten more blog posts to make from my Europe trip last year, and I need to post them all within the next month. Guess why..

Smallest breakfast ever. I was in such a rush to catch the train to London that morning..I ended up missing it in the end and needed to reschedule for the next one =\ That was the third train/flight I missed on that trip because I slept in!

346. Last Week

O&B bar
Some photos from my phone taken this past week. Lots of O&B-ing and patios. Last time I posted about O&B I said the Mac and Cheese was the best I've ever had. Well I take that back - had it again and didn't like it anymore. I couldn't even finish it this time. That day I came here for lunch with my friend, which eventually turned into 9 hours of patio-hopping all day. Not sure how that happened! I felt so guilty when I got home (for wasting the entire day). Then I realized I used to do this all the time during the previous summers without feeling guilty at all. I miss those stress-free days with no responsibilities:

345. NYC | Wall Street, etc

Grand Central Station
Second last NYC post. Kind of unfortunate that it rained most of the days I was there, but I got this really cool photo out of it at least. I realized after experiencing that tropical storm my rain tolerance has gone up. I normally stay indoors/in the path when it rains (even a little) but now I'm actually willing to go outdoors, of course with an umbrella. Last week there was a major storm (& floods) here in Toronto..I'm so proud of myself that I actually ventured outside in search of food. So here's some photos taken during my first and last days in New York.

My first attempt at a gif! Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. Well, halfway across.
