My perfect friend, Moira (@gingergurl36) got married yesterday in the most beautiful ceremony. Thank you for the invite, and it was so great to see you again! . Friends since middle school, and neither time nor distance has separated us, so I guess that means we’re friends for life! . . . . #moiraandkiki #wedding #friendsforlife #friendssincemiddleschool #redheads #gingers #redheadsunite #isntshegorgeous #beautifulbride #selfie

And that concludes the European portion of my summer travels! One last weekend in Oregon, and then no more airports for me for a long time (or so my wallet says...) . . . . #byebyelondon #byesummer #summer2018 #bestsummerever #travellover #travelpicoftheday #london #explorelondon #phonebooth #londonphonebooth #telephonebooth #colorscheme #callmeonmycellphone #backintheusa #ilovelondon #ilovetravel #wanderluster #redheadtravels #redheadsdoitbetter #redhead at London, United Kingdom

So the queen was not in, but I got to tour! Absolutely beautiful! A bit different, because the interior is so much newer than other castles I’ve been to (Versailles: 1600s-1800s, Buckingham: 1850s-present) but definitely gorgeous! . . . . #buckinghampalace #queenelizabeth #explorelondon #travelinlondon #englishcastle #palace #victorian #princess #beautifulcastle #travelwithme #travelpicoftheday at Buckingham Palace

I think I’m getting the hang of this British way of life... #teatime (and I know you’re wondering: it’s Earl Grey) .

The only part of the building where scaffolding is not in the shot! Big Ben is completely covered, as it was when I was here in 2015.... I’m starting to think it doesn’t exist 🤔..... . . . . . #conspiracytheory #whereisbigben #houseofparliament #westminster #westminsterpalace #explorelondon #travellondon #travellover #travelinlondon #travelwithme #🇬🇧 #pippipcheerio #travelpicoftheday #travelpassion #bestsummerever at Houses of Parliament

What a great day! Saw the wonderful @holbowww for church, walked around London (though not as far as yesterday!), and then got the grand city tour by car with true Londoners!

It’s been a long day: I walked almost 12 miles today around London because their metro system isn’t as easy to use as Paris and I didn’t want to pay for it. So I’m just a bit tired, and my knees hurt (because I’m a grandma and this apparently happens when you get older). Nothing some yummy London food can’t fix 😊 . . . . . #exercise #somuchwalking #fitbit #iworkout #imgettingold #basicallyagrandma #london #explorelondon #travelgram #travelwithme #travelpicoftheday #travelinlondon #changingoftheguards #royalguards #buckinghampalace #thequeenishere #royalpalace #colorscheme #traveler #wanderlust #summer at Buckingham Palace

Cheese and wine for my last meal in Paris... Au revoir, France, until we meet again. Spending this week in London, and then my dream of a vacation is over 😢 . . . . #goodbyesummer #winelover #frenchwine #cheeseandwine #goodbyeparis #hellolondon #redheadtravels #redheadsdoitbetter #selfie #shamelessselfie #aurevoirparis #dontwakemeup #wanderlust #travelpicoftheday #exploringparis #travelwithme #treatmyself #illmissthis at Paris, France

Fangirling over here because I just found out Nicolas Flamel was a real person, and he was French! Rumors circled of him finding the philosopher’s stone and achieving immortality way before JK Rowling was ever born (like way before - he was born in 1330, but the rumors started in the 17th century). Additionally, his house happens to be the oldest house in Paris today! Kind of fitting 😊 . . . . . #harrypotterfan #nicolasflamel #nicolasflamelhouse #oldesthouseinparis #fangirling #jkrowling #harrypotterandthesorcerersstone #harrypotterandthephilosophersstone #parishistory #travelpicoftheday #iloveparis #historynerd #travelinparis #travelinfrance #thingstoseeinparis #discoverparis at Auberge Nicolas Flamel

The Basilica of Saint Denis (the patron saint of Paris) is the burial spot of nearly every French king and queen from the 10th-18th century, and many from earlier than that. This statue from 1830 commemorates Louis XVI and his wife, Marie Antoinette. Their graves are also in this church, on a special display. .. I’ve been reading a lot of early French history lately (Romans, Middle Ages, Renaissance, etc), so it was really cool to put a face to the names of all the kings I’ve been hearing, even if it’s a statue! . . . . #basilicasaintdenis #saintdenis #frenchroyalty #marieantoinette #louisxvi #thingstodoinparis #travelpicoftheday #historynerd #frenchhistory at Basilica of St Denis

I was supposed to visit Bordeaux today, but an electrical fire a few days ago resulted in most of the trains being canceled, including mine 😢 . So at the suggestion of @lizzybrynn, I visited Parc MLK, Square des Batignolles, and Parc Monceau. This is from the Square des Batignolles, an art piece of a rifle shooting blue flowers. Thanks for the suggestion, Lisa! All three parks were beautiful! 😊 . . . . #parisparks #parcsdeparis #squaredesbatignolles #lazymondays #thingstodoinparis #travelpicoftheday #makingthebestofit #guncontrolnow #parcmartinlutherking #parcmonceau at Square des Batignolles

The end of the Tour de France was today on the Champs Élysée!

My adventures today took me all over Paris. I started at one of the famous flea markets at the very south (and just look at all those books 😍), then visited the other flea market up north, then, since it was still early and a beautiful day I popped over to the east side of Paris, where I had stayed with my host family when I studied abroad. One thing is for sure: I’m making good use of my metro pass! . . . . #hoorayforgoodweather #beautifulday #marcheauxpuces #oldbooks #parisfleamarket #iwantthemall #booklovers #travelpicoftheday #parisianweekend #livingthelife #summerinparis at Marché aux Puces de Vanves

I’be really become a fan of reflection shots... taken at the Palace of Fontainebleau, one of the royal castles from Louis VII (way back in the 12th ce) to Napoleon III (yes this includes Marie Antoinette). . And look at the sky! Those are storm clouds! All my complaining finally paid off as we had a nice shower tonight complete with thunder and lightning. My kind of weather! . . . . #imweirdiknow #summerstorms #chateaudefontainebleau #palaceoffontainebleau #fontainbleau #marieantoinette #napoleoniii #reflection #peaceful #parisdaytrip #summerinparis #frenchcastle #travelpicoftheday #travelwithme #livingthelife at Palace of Fontainebleau

I gotta admit, the hot weather has been quite miserable lately. It’s not a secret I hate heat. It’s hard being outside, yet I feel guilty for wanting to stay inside. I’ve been trying to do museums and other indoor activities as much as I can, but many aren’t air conditioned, so it doesn’t help much. Got this quick picture of the Palais Royal gardens before heading back to the shade today! . Also I’m starting to develop a shoe tan... . . . . #ineedairconditioning #ihatesummer #heatwave #palaisroyal #paris #parispics #parisgarden #palaisroyalgarden #prayingforrain #travelpicoftheday #travelaholic at Palais-Royal

Today I designed myself a little self guided pastry tour of the Latin Quarter/Saint Germain, (not pictured: a kouginette that I ate before I remembered I was taking pictures 😅 too delicious) . Macarons from @maisongeorgeslarnicol . A “choux à la crème” (cream puff) from @chouxodette . A “baba” (limoncello pastry) from @pierrehermeofficial . And a croissant from the shop that won first prize for best croissant 2018 (they don’t have an Instagram) . All very amazing! Definitely would recommend all of these places, as well as diy food tours! 😋 I’m going to go eat some vegetables now... . . . . #frenchpastries #foodtour #desserts #sweettooth #macarons #chouxalacreme #croissant #pierreherme #maisongeorgeslarnicol #eatingmywaythroughparis #sofull #toomuchofagoodthing #travelpicoftheday #wanderlust #ilovefoodtoomuch at Paris, France
