Tempting Travel Tid Bits: Tips On What Not To Miss When You Are On the Road

  • When in Paris, find a cafe that offers REAL hot chocolate: a small pitcher of thick melted chocolate and large pitcher of steamed milk to mix to your own taste. C'est magnifique!
  • Biarritz
    Don't miss Chocolatier Henriet in the center of Biarritz. Feast your eyes and your taste buds.
  • Biarritz
    In Biarritz this tiny Chocolate Museum (immodestly called the Planete Musee du Chocolat), offers a chocolate purist's walk through history. At the end you are offered an old fashioned dark chocolate brew made from an ancient recipe.
  •  Les Soloists Francais
    Some Paris magic: the medieval Gothic royal chapel, Sainte-Chappelle, with its sparkling stained glass windows, is the perfect setting to listen to a classical concert, such as Vivaldi's Four Seasons by Les Solistes Francais.
  • A highlight of any trip to Berlin is the East Side Gallery: a mile long piece of the original Berlin Wall, decorated by over 100 artists with raw vibrant expressions of Freedom.
  • Biarritz
    In the center of Biarritz, this gem of a bookstore is called, oddly enough, Bookstore. The tiny space with a spiral staircase leading to a book filled landing will have you hoping for a rainy day so you can linger.
