diet schmiet!

ahh the word i hate

Yep DIET or DIETING or "healthy eating" pretty sure everyones tried it, i can safely say im kind of "always on a diet" haha! I really should buckle down and loose those KGs but i always find myself saying "ill start on monday!" kinda over it to be just letting you know as of tonight (because im at work :P) im gonna actually act like im on a diet! and stick to it! BUT one thing i hate is the word DIET! its just so negative and annoying! so to keep myself motivated:

As of tonight im on a smaller portions per meal plan with a hell of alot of Cross Trainer workouts :)

and if i want something naughty, im just going to do it! lol In my opinion what i think makes people sidetracked from "dieting" is the whole..."you cant have what you want" when you have the opportunity to have a block of chocolate you do end up eating the whole lot! but if i "ALLOW" myself to have something once and a while and not feel bad...i think dieting might work!

Lets see how long this will last shall we? haha

I have dieted before though! so i do have that frame in mind deep down in me that i can actually do this...See i think im actually not BUILT to be skuinny, and to be honest im happy with that! i dont want to be skinny...i like curves! it makes me feel like a woman...but dang i think i haveabit to many curves atm if you know what i mean?? hahaha...anyways the first time i "dieted" was in high school i lost like 20kgs for my formal and then last yr i lost 12 KGs in 5 weeks, leading up to my (amazing,spectacular,beautiful) WEDDING :) i know right?? im such a trooper! Now since im turning 21 in a few months and have a couple weddings to going to do it again! im going to WOW people! Plus i love that feeling when you now you have lost weight and everyone they are all like "WOW you look amazing, youve lost weight" and you answer back "eww no i havent" but deep down your all like "ohhhhh yeh people notice!" hahaha i live for that...

so bring on DIETING! but unfortunetly i may have to wait till i get back from campin LMFAO chocolates, eating all day bcoz your bored and who could forget....Marshmellows over a fire and im also going to try SCHMORES?? if thats how u spell it...chocolate coated biscuits with a melted marshemellow in between...ohh yes! :(

DARN-IT! this will be harder than i thought baha

Quote of the day: "When the world says Give Up, Hope whispers, Try one more time."


Dear BLOGinatorz,

Thought i would fill you in with the "WHATZ HAPPENING IN CLAUDZ LIFE LATELY."

im going to start with

yupp one less debt to worry about:) thank you TAXman! ahhh i cannot explain the relief/weight off my shoulders/HAPPINESS im feeling right now! it feels FANTASTIC!! im not a fan of credit cards but we did have a purpose in getting one (we actually have two LOL) BUT its SOLEY for furniture and stuff we bought for around the house! i am not one of those girls who wastes INCREDIABLE amounts of money on shoes, handbags and shit! not my thing...alot of guys have told me...thats why im married haha bcoz William doesnt have to worry about his wife spending money on shopping, to be honest with you im not a big fan on shopping (SHOCK HORROR)...and i can safely say my wonderful Husband spends more money than me (LOL). But for as long as i can remember i never was really a girly girl kind of person, sure i love getting dressed up and putting my make up on, but shopping endlessly spendings 100's on shoes...yeh NOT ME! i guess im like my dad in that way, im a saver not a spender!

Now for people who know me or have seen photos of me with my family, there is know lie...i look JUST LIKE MY (beautiful, wonderful) MUM, who i miss dearly! why i miss her? well shes been overseas in Portugal for the last 5 weeks and she comes back next friday.(so jealous!) Anyways back to the subject, i look like my mum but i have the personality and attitude like my dad. As for my lil brother he looks pretty similar to my dad when he was younger but is in EVERY WAY like my mum. Why im mentioning this, well im not sure to be honest haha im kind of just typing and going with the flow...i guess what im trying to say is that, there is a reason why i like to save...bcoz im like my dad! and yep my brother is like my mum, spends money on stuff he really doesnt need! see i really see no logic in spending money on something im only going to use once or a few times! for eg. My brother bought a PSP when he already had everything else he used it once and never touched in again.... i really think about something before i buy it!
 Now back to the orginal topic, credit cards...i hate credit cards! (unless they are 50 months interest free, what a LIFESAVER! lol) Just a word of advice only get one if there is an actual reason and you know youll be on top of it, ive heard so many stories about peoples lives being RUINED because of a credit think maturely, if you dont need one...dont get one?!

Moving on...

So my hubby and i have a kind of weird home arrangement...we own part of a house with his mum and sister (suggestion to everyone never buy a house with family!!!) and we cant get out of it! which is very stressful and i guess disapointing, and people just dont understand our situation! and i wouldnt be surprised if this situation is the reason i get annoyed so easily! its our house but its not our HOME..i dont know if that makes sense but a home to me is a sancuary where its yours and your happy to be there.....atm im in a house and the reason im here is well because we have to be! Plus you know when your get married you just want to be on your own and start a new journey by ourselves! we are physically stuck here! stupid economy!!!!! its way to hard to explain why we are stuck here but in simple form...its a buyers market, not a sellers and if we sell we loose 20k and owe the bank 20k soo yeh not gonna happen :( boo!

 We have come along way though, we originally lived in the shed at the back, it was a small shed that was a bedroom, loung eroom, study and kitchen in word: HORRIBAL! (probably being overdramatic haha)....then wills sister moved out so we moved up in the world...we got a room inside the actual house YAY lol...and now (bcoz of my wonderful mum in law :) ) we now have upstairs to i guess its a major improvement and kind of is like a little apartment! :)

All in all, william gets me through each and every day with just that one sentence..."everything will be ok?" hearing him say that to me is very comforting and soothing. I could not live my life without him..he is my everything!

Anywayss i think todays blog is just a big "BLAHHH" im letting things out! and it feels nice too!

untill next time kidz

Mi Vida Loca

my crazy life

Mi Vida Loca.
Meaning: My Crazy Life

YES! my crazy life. I sometimes feel as my life is out control and that i have no TIME FOR ANYTHING! I work, i sleep, i work again, i sleep. Probably sounds quite familiar right ?everyones life seems like that these days! aghhhhh! *rips hair out* lol I guess the only thing that keeps me sane is that i have a wonderful Husband who is waiting for me at home. I find myself very lucky, not many people my age (20 turning 21) are happily married with a home loan and a car loan...dont ask me how we do it but we do it alright, even if it means i work 6 days a week to do it lol

Now the other day i was reading my wonderful friend Joan's blog and she was talking about how people judge her for being a young mum. I know its totally differemt but it reminded me when i first got engaged, i rememeber being asked "why would u get married, your so young?" or "As if, your still so young, go PARTY" or "Your still a child", yepp i was judged for getting married young... I remember just thinking why the FUDGE do you even care? see i look at it this way, when you find that person you know DEEP DOWN you will grow old with, never ever seize the opportunity. Im just lucky enough to have found a guy who wanted to get married :) plus the moment my family met William, they pretty much loved him more than me haha

My Husband (still fresh so i love saying it haha) William and I met on RSVP...yes RSVP dating online hahaha! it makes us laugh too, dont ask me why i joined, i was only 17 and right out of High School, but i guess i did it to see all the cute guys in Brisbane :P On there you send people what they call 'KISSES'....its when a woman 'Virtual Kisses' someone and if the guy likes you they pay to email you back haha. You guessed it William paid to talk to me :P...after 3-4 months of talking on MSN and many "Wana go out?" from him...i finally took the opportunity and did it. Obviously i didnt go alone (he could of been a stalker/murderer/crazy man) i was ment to go with 3 of my friends but one bailed...and the 2 left were a couple so MAJOR AWKWARDness on my behalf, so i invited him to tag along...from that day onwards we have been inseparable ever since...
3.5 yrs together
almost a yr married

yepp I am a firm believer of....
Love At First Site

That moment you say "I DO" and have your first kiss as HUSBAND and WIFE...its probably the best moment in a couples life...i know it was for me..bcoz it was the start of a journey to our new life together.

"Our Moment"

No matter what age your are, if your in love .... Why the hell NOT! Marry Them! Never seize the opportunity. Many people told me the reason people judged me on being so young is because they're jealous, and you know they probably are, but no1 has the right to judge you on a decision you make on YOUR life. You are the Pilot of Your Life...and if your lucky enough you can find a sexy Co-Pilot like i have:P

anyways enough of my love filled blog, until next time.

the Claudia Journey Part4: Greece


The cultural and historical background of Greece has sprinkled the landscapes with ruins that span six thousand years. The alternating invaders, the peacefull settlers, and the country's position at the crossroads between east and west, have all left their mark on the Greek cultural landscape. Archaeological sites abound in the country side, and museums in cities protect priceless artifacts from antiquity. It would be an omission to visit Greece and leave without experiencing the ancient Greek culture; the culture that is credited with the birth of western civilization.

In Greece, you are in a crossroad of colors and cultures; you feel the strength of History and the warmth of the southern extremity of Europe and you discover the evolutionary course of thought, influence and experience.

the Greek Islands

The islands are the main characteristic of Greece’s morphology and an integral part of the country’s culture and tradition. Greek sovereign land includes 6,000 islands and islets scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Seas, of which only 227 islands are inhabited. This is a truly unique phenomenon for the European continent. The Greek Archipelago takes up 7,500 km of the country’s total 16,000 km coastline, offering a highly diversified landscape: beaches stretching over many kilometers, sheltered bays and coves, sandy beaches with sand-dunes, pebble beaches, coastal caves with steep rocks and dark colored sand typical of volcanic soil and coastal wetlands.

Moonrise Over Santorini Greece


Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece. Athens dominates the Attica periphery and it is one of the world's oldest cities, as its recorded history spans around 3,400 years. Classical Athens was a powerful city-state. A centre for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato's Academy and Aristotle's Lyceum,  it is widely referred to as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy, largely due to the impact of its cultural and political achievements during the 5th and 4th centuries BC on the rest of the then known European continent.

The Acropolis of Athens
What would a visit to Athens without going to the Acropolis to see the Parthenon. Why is the Parthenon so important?  well its because it was the most perfect building built by the world's most advanced civilization and even though we have been studying it for centuries we are still not sure how they did it.
The Parthenon and other main buildings on the Acropolis were built by Pericles in the fifth century BC as a monument to the cultural and political achievements of the inhabitants of Athens. The term acropolis means upper city and many of the city states of ancient Greece are built around an acropolis where the inhabitants can go as a place of refuge in times of invasion. It's for this reason that the most sacred buildings are usually on the acropolis. It's the safest most secure place in town. As little as 150 years ago there were still dwellings on the Acropolis of Athens. Those of you who have read Aristophanes will recall that in Lysistrata the women have Athens barricaded themselves in the fortress in protest, being tired of their men going to war against Sparta. Depriving them of sex, cooking and care it was a terrific strategy that might even work today.
The  Propylaia, entry to the  Acropolis, was built in 437-432 BCE, in alignment with the Parthenon.

The Erecthion
The Erecthion sits on the most sacred site of the Acropolis where Poseidon and Athena had their contest over who would be the Patron of the city. Poseidon thrust his trident into the rock and a spring burst forth, while Athena touched the ground with a spear and an olive tree grew. Athena was declared the victor and the great city of Athens was named for her while Poseidon was given a small village in Syros after it was discovered he had merely ruptured a water main. The building itself contains the porch of the maidens or Caryatids which are now copies, four of which have been placed in the Acropolis museum, hopefully to be reunited with a fifth taken from the Acropolis by Lord Elgin and put in the British Museum more than a century ago. 
The temple as seen today was built between 421 BC and 407 BC, but it is believed to be a replacement for an older temple, since it is on the site of some of the most ancient and holy relics of the Athenians:

•the Palladion, which was a xoanon (wooden effigy) of Athena Polias (Protectress of the City) that fell from heaven according to myth

•the tomb of Cecrops
•the tomb of Erechtheus
•the marks of Poseidon's trident and the salt water well (the "salt sea") that resulted from Poseidon's strike, and
•the precincts of Herse, Pandrosus and Aglaurus (the three daughters of Cecrops) and of the tribal heroes Pandion and Boutes.



The Parthenon has stood atop the Acropolis of Athens for nearly 2,500 years and was built to give thanks to Athena, the city's patron goddess, for the salvation of Athens and Greece in the Persian Wars. The building was officially called the Temple of Athena the Virgin; "Parthenon" comes from the Greek word parthenos, "virgin."

Throughout its long life, the Parthenon has functioned most importantly as a Greek temple, but has also been a treasury, a fortress, a church, and a mosque. Today, it is one of the most recognizable icons and popular tourist attractions in the world.  Its construction began in 447 BC and was completed in 438 BC, although decorations of the Parthenon continued until 432 BC. It is the most important surviving building of Classical Greece, generally considered to be the culmination of the development of the Doric order. Its decorative sculptures are considered some of the high points of Greek art. The Parthenon is regarded as an enduring symbol of Ancient Greece and of Athenian democracy and one of the world's greatest cultural monuments.It seems certain that the master planners of the Parthenon conceived it as a theatrical event.

The temple was constructed with the movements of the viewer in mind, and by the arrangement of the temple, the monumental sculptures of the pediment, and the detailed frieze, the emotions of the visitors were choreographed to prepare them for the ultimate glimpse of the majestic Athena Parthenos at the interior of the naos, and to maximize the effect of an awe inspiring visit.


Temple of Hephaest
The Temple of Hephaestus in central Athens, Greece, is the best-preserved ancient Greek temple in the world, but is far less well-known than its illustrious neighbour, the Parthenon. The temple is also known as the Hephaesteum and the Theseum, due to a belief current in Byzantine times that the bones of the legendary Greek hero Theseus were buried there; in fact the bones alleged to be those of Theseus were buried in the 5th century BC at another site nearer to the Acropolis. 


Temple of Olympian Zeus, Athens
The Temple of Olympian Zeus, also known as the Olympieion or Columns of the Olympian Zeus, is a colossal ruined temple in the centre of the Greek capital Athens that was dedicated to Zeus, king of the Olympian gods. Construction began in the 6th century BC during the rule of the Athenian tyrants, who envisaged building the greatest temple in the ancient world, but it was not completed until the reign of the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD some 638 years after the project had begun. During the Roman periods it was renowned as the largest temple in Greece and housed one of the largest cult statues in the ancient world.

The temple's glory was short-lived, as it fell into disuse after being pillaged in a barbarian invasion in the 3rd century AD. It was probably never repaired and was reduced to ruins thereafter. In the centuries after the fall of the Roman Empire, the temple was extensively quarried for building materials to supply building projects elsewhere in the city. Despite this, substantial remains remain visible today and it continues to be a major tourist attraction.


Ahhhhh, now this place is somewhere ive always wanted to go aswell. Growing up in Darwin (where evryones pretty much greek lol) we have some really close family friends who are Greek. They would tell me stories of when they would go home and, look you know how someone says...go here (a place where they have been) its soo beautiful yada yada and u never quite believe them until you actually go! But just going through pictures and just seeing how beautiful the scenery is and the Ancient Buildings, i would go in a heartbeat!

the Claudia Journey Part3: Egypt


 What can i say...IM so FASCINATED by this PLACE! Well mostly Ancient Egypt.  Egypt enjoys a unique geographical location. It is an Arab-African country situated on the north-eastern corner of the African continent. Due to its singular geographical situation, Egypt has always been a connecting link between the world’s continents. Although the country’s position was affected following the discovery of the Cape of Good Hope route, it later regained its vital role after the creation of the Suez Canal.Egypt, the land of the Pharaohs, is unique. No where else on earth can you find the wealth of antiquities, the pyramids and the vast temples and monuments.
Egypt is probably the world's oldest civilization having emerged from the Nile Valley around 3,100 BC, historically.  Early Greeks, Romans and others went there just for fun, and to see the wonders of some of mankind's earliest triumphs. But Egypt is much more than Pyramids and monuments.For thousands of years, it has been the playground of emperors and kings.

the Great Pyramid of Giza
The Great Pyramid of Giza (also called the Pyramid of Khufu and the Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact. Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb for fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops in Greek) over an approximately 20 year period concluding around 2560 BC. Initially at 146.5 metres (480.6 ft), the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years, the longest period of time ever held for such a record.

the Great Sphinx of Giza
The Great Sphinx of Giza (The Terrifying One), commonly referred to as the Sphinx, is a statue of a reclining or couchant sphinx (a mythical creature with a lion's body and a human head) that stands on the Giza Plateau on the west bank of the Nile in Giza, Egypt. It is the largest monolith statue in the world, standing 73.5 metres long, 6 metres  wide, and 20.22 m high. It is the oldest known monumental sculpture, and is commonly believed to have been built by ancient Egyptians of the Old Kingdom during the reign of the pharaoh Khafra.

As the site of the Ancient Egyptian city of Thebes, the great capital of Egypt during the New Kingdom, and the glorious city of the god Amon-Ra. Luxor has frequently been characterized as the "world's greatest open air museum", as the ruins of the temple complexes at Karnak and Luxor stand within the modern city. Immediately opposite, across the River Nile, lie the monuments, temples and tombs on the West Bank Necropolis, which include the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens.

Valley of the Kings
The Valley of the Kings, less often called the Valley of the Gates of the Kings, is a valley in Egypt where, for a period of nearly 500 years from the 16th to 11th century BC, tombs were constructed for the Pharaohs and powerful nobles of the New Kingdom (the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Dynasties of Ancient Egypt). The valley stands on the west bank of the Nile, opposite Thebes (modern Luxor), within the heart of the Theban Necropolis. The wadi consists of two valleys, East Valley (where the majority of the royal tombs are situated) and West Valley.

Exteror of King Tut's Tomb!

Sharm el-Sheikh
The simplicity of sun, sea and sand. The luxury of five-star hotels, water sports, shopping and entertainment. This is Sharm el-Sheikh, one of the most accessible and developed tourist resort communities on the Sinai peninsula. Let your eyes be tantalized by the white sandy beaches and endless desert landscape, which contrast with the crystal clear blue water of the Sinai peninsula. Sharm El Sheikh has been heralded as "The City of Peace" It is also noted for its sulphur springs, which are considered cures for those suffering from rheumatic and skin diseases. The morphology of Sharm El Sheikh's coastline is unique. Isnt it BEAUTIFUL!!!

the Museum of Cairo
The Egyptian Museum of Antiquities contains many important pieces of ancient Egyptian history. It houses the world’s largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities, and many treasures of King Tutankhamen. It has 120,000 items, with a representative amount on display, the remainder in storerooms.

King Tutankhamen
Unlike many tombs discovered in Egypt, that of King Tutankhamen was found mostly intact. Inside the tomb there was a large collection of artifacts used throughout the King’s life. These artifacts ranged from a decorated chest, which was most likely used as a closet or suitcase, two ivory and gold bracelets, necklaces, and other decorative jewelry, to alabaster vases and flasks. The tomb was also home to many weapons and instruments used by the King. Although the tomb held over 3,500 artifacts, the tomb was not found completely intact. In fact, there had been at least two robberies of the tomb, perhaps soon after Tutankhamun's burial.
The best known artifact in King Tutankhamun’s tomb is the famous Gold Mask, which rested over the bandages that were wrapped around the King’s face.

File:Tutankhamun's bed (Cairo Museum).jpg

other Pharaohs
The remains of many famous Pharaohs are stored in the Egyptian Museum. One of these is Pharaoh Ramses III, who was an extremely skilled warrior. Usimare Ramesses III  was the second Pharaoh of the Twentieth Dynasty and is considered to be the last great New Kingdom king to wield any substantial authority over Egypt. 

File:Louvre 122007 27.jpg

For many of the mummified pharaohs, it has been very difficult to determine when they were born, and historians can only estimate a time when they reigned over Egypt. For Amenhotep IV, historians have estimated his reign around 1372 B.C., because they found out when Amenhotep IV's father, Amenhotep III died. Also, that Amenhotep IV's tomb inscribed five names he gave himself and one of them, Golden Horus, proves that he was crowned on the bank of the Nile, his father's favorite domain. Before he became pharaoh, he was already married to Nefertiti. When Amenhotep IV did become pharaoh, he destroyed the religion of Amun. He did this because he wanted to start his own new religion of Aten, the sun, which is pictured as a disc that sends out rays ending in hands.

Historians believe Sneferu was the first king of the Fourth Dynasty. The year he started his reign was around 2620 B.C. Sneferu appears to have been a fair and just king, and seems to have deserved his chosen name of Master of Justice or Truth. Sneferu, like many other kings, built many temples and structures.
File:Snofru Eg Mus Kairo 2002.png

File:Snefru's Bent Pyramid in Dahshur.jpg
Snefru's Bent Pyramid in Dahshur

Many pharaohs chose coronation names and they all seemed to be alike. For example, Sneferu, Tutankhamun and Amenhotep all had the name "Golden Horus".


Egypt: The Land of the Pharohs.
Its just seems like such an interesting place to go! Im really excited to walk through "The Valley of the Kings" and go close up to a Pyramid and even ride a Camel LOL Please God let me win the LOTTO! lol

the Claudia Journey Part2: Paris

 File:Paris Night.jpg


The City of Love.
Paris is that magnificent place that lives up to so many of it's own clichés. Romantic, sophistictaed, bohemian, glamorous, artistic, seductive, and Paris is generous enough to satisfy them all. In a city of so many amazing monuments, it’s almost a surprise to discover that a real, everyday Paris actually exists. Because for all the instantly recognisable icons like the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Notre Dame; you’ll also find that Paris is an exciting, brash, secretive and sometimes contradictory, vibrant, lived-in city. It’s a place you don’t just come to visit but to experience.

Now even though Paris is on my "List of Places i Want to go Before i Die" i cant lie to you and say i havent gone there already lol. I have been to Paris BUT i was WAY to young to even remember most of it, I do however remember being at the top of the Eiffle Tower. I may of been 5 yrs old but thats something you'd never forget. At least this time when i go i'll be able to say i was in "the City of Love" with no-one else but the person i love...My wonderful Husband :)

So i guess these are the places i would love experience is Paris:

the Eiffel Tower

the Eiffel Tower(nickname La dame de fer, the iron lady), is the most widely recognized national landmark in the world. It is a 320-metre tower built of structural iron, originally constructed by engineer Gustave Eiffel (after whom the tower is named) for an international exposition in Paris in 1889. The tower was the only structure in the exposition intended for permanent display, and it survives to this day intact. It narrowly escaped demolition and conversion to scrap on several occasions in its youth, but today nobody would think of tearing down the Eiffel Tower.

the Arc de Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe is one of the most formal and prominent of the monuments in Paris. Built to honour those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.
The Arc de Triomphe is the linchpin of the historic axis – a sequence of monuments and grand thoroughfares on a route which goes from the courtyard of the Louvre, to the Grande Arche de la Défense. The monument was designed by Jean Chalgrin in 1806, and its iconographic program pitted heroically nude French youths against bearded Germanic warriors in chain mail. It set the tone for public monuments, with triumphant patriotic messages.

the Musée du Louvre

or simply the Louvre – is one of the world's largest museums, the most visited art museum in the world, a historic monument and the central landmark of Paris. The Musée du Louvre has a gigantic collection of more than 380,000 objects and displays 35,000 works of art in eight curatorial departments with more than 60,600 square meters used up by the permanent collection. It contains more history of France or the world for that matter than any other museum. It houses the greatest artistic talents from the past including Leonardo da Vinci. Considered the most famous painting ever created, his Mona Lisa sits in a pose and possess that secretive knowing smile that is a must see. Almost 15,000 people visit the Louvre per day.

This isnt in Paris BUT France has some of the most exotic beaches in the world, the most famous of these destinations are nice, Canne, and St Lopez. Its beaches are so magnificent and are the most perfect place for a romantic interlude on your trip. The night life along these area is unparalleled, whatever you imagine can happen most likely will.

the Cathedral of Notre Dame

Notre Dame de Paris (French for Our Lady of Paris), is a Gothic, Catholic cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, France. It is the cathedral of the Catholic Archdiocese of Paris: It is the church that contains the cathedra (official chair) of the Archbishop of Paris. Notre dame was made famous in the book by Victor Hugo. The entire story of Notre dame revolves around a humpback which we have learned to cherish and love. It is famous for its stone architecture complete with magnificent relics of old Christianity along with gothic faces of gargoyles.


During the mid 20th century Germany ravaged the land or France. During that time many countries fought and died to get rid of the Nazis once and for all. It is one of these places where the dead are honored for their great service.
Normandy itself has seen too many wars and battles, the most famous being fought here in the early fourteen hundreds by Joan of Arc.

During the Second World War, the D Day landings on the Normandy beaches under the code name Operation Overlord, started the lengthy Battle of Normandy which resulted in the Liberation of Paris, the restoration of the French Republic, and was a significant turning point in the war.

Musee d’Orsay

The Musée d'Orsay  is a museum in Paris, on the left bank of the Seine. It is housed in the former Gare d'Orsay, an impressive Beaux-Arts railway station built between 1898 and 1900. The museum holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1915, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography. It is probably best known for its extensive collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces (the largest in the world) by such painters such as Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin and Van Gogh. Many of these works were held at the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume prior to the museum's opening in 1986.


What more can i say, there is not one person i know who wouldnt want to go! You see it in movies, TV shows, Books...its the perfect place for the perfect experience!
Il n’y a que deux endroits au monde où l’on puisse vivre heureux:  chez soi et à Paris.
(There are only two places in the world where we can live happy: at home and in Paris.)
