Galileo Galilaaaame

I decided to check out the Galileo museum yesterday.  It seemed like quite a good idea when I embarked upon the afternoon since I am on a church and art museum strike.  To begin the tour of the museum, you step into a room that houses a giant astrological clock that “Galileo built” in the 16th century and was […]

Wayne Dyer ROCKS

“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you.” OMG – sooooo true! I love Wayne Dyer! And do you know what else? I think that blaming someone else creates a block that prevents us […]

Cinque Terre

After being a lazy sack of s**t yesterday, I got up early for a day trip to Cinque Terre – 7am to be exact.  This is the earliest I have had to be up since I arrived in Europe and it sucked arse!  I was grateful for the two-and-a-half hour bus ride there so that I could sleep […]

From a Friend

“We need to teach our daughters to distinguish between a man who flatters her – and a man who compliments her. A man who spends money on her – and a man who invests in her. A man who views her as property – and a man who views her properly. A man who lusts […]

OUCH!

Art Walk Tuesdays

Today I started out with breakfast at a little place down the street from my hotel.  I have to say that the Italians cannot make a croissant quite as good as the French – more butter is needed I think. However, they do load them up with custard, which does make them just as fattening and equally delicious.  Then I […]

No more Vins por moi!

Breakfast was served a bit late today; rather I should say I stumbled over to Le Circuit for another cheesy omelet at Noon to be exact.  I have seem to of acquired a wee bit of a hangover from last night.  My intention for a quiet evening in my hotel slurping down a can of […]

La Colline du Chateau

Last night, I went to a restaurant just down the street from my ghetto ass hotel, based on a recommendation from Trip Advisor – Restaurant Nicose Voyageur Nissart (it’s kind of a long time for such a tiny little place, don’t you think?) It was fantastic! I had a sea bass bouillabaisse, lots of delicious […]

Apres Marseille….Nice!

My train leaves for Nice at Noon, so best not to chance anything and schedule to leave the hotel by 10am.  There is a short ride from the subway to the train station, and I already made sure I have plenty of euros.  I want to commend the French (sorry, Chris) because they haven’t screwed […]
