  1. Paris: The Eiffel Tower

    Date 13 Aug 2017
    One of my required stops in Paris was the iconic Eiffel Tower. After spending the morning exploring The Louvre I ventured to Parc du Champ de Mars. The Tower is easily accessible via The Paris Metro but walking was a lot more fun. The weather was a mix of very…

  2. Paris: The Louvre

    Date 09 Aug 2017
    For my first full day in Paris I went to The Louvre. I was very early and one of the first people in line. During my research on the museum I realized how crowded it gets so getting a ticket in advance and showing up early was the way to…

  3. London Underground

    Date 07 Aug 2017
    London’s Underground rail system was a lot of fun. It was easily one of the main highlights of the first leg of my trip. With an Oyster card (a ticket you can preload with a weekly fare for example) enabled me to get around Central London easily. The iconography of…

  4. London Eye

    Date 03 Aug 2017
    Since I saw St. Paul’s Cathedral in the morning I had the rest of the day to explore the city. South Bank is where I ended up first and I came across a building with DC Comics characters plastered on the side. I was way too curious not to head…

  5. London: St. Paul’s Cathedral (Interior)

    Date 29 Jul 2017
    After a full day of traveling around South Bank and checking out Tate Modern I walked to Blackfriars to see St. Paul’s Cathedral. I was initially drawn to it because it’s resemblance to The Capitol Building in DC. I guess that’s the other way around considering the age of the…

  6. London: Hampton Court Palace

    Date 28 Jul 2017
    A lot of planning went into my first trip to London recently but there was room for spontaneity. On a beautiful summer day I went to explore Hampton Court Palace. The palace was where Henry VIII lived. Since the palace was so massive I spent half the day exploring. Construction…

  7. London: Colville Square

    Date 27 Jul 2017
    One day after I saw all of the tourist attractions I wanted to check out in London I decided to do something more low key. I got on the tube and randomly got off at Notting Hill. Since my first few days in London were primarily about getting used to…

  8. London: Amy Winehouse Exhibit

    Date 26 Jul 2017
    An essential stop for me in London was Camden Town. Specifically The Jewish Museum. I already saw the exhibit: Amy Winehouse, A Family Portrait in San Francisco a few years ago. It was important for me to see the one in Camden because that’s one of the places where she lived…

  9. London: The West End

    Date 24 Jul 2017
    One part of London I was curious about was Piccadilly Circus. When I got there (via The London Underground) I felt like I was in familiar territory. The reason for that is Piccadilly Circus to me feels like a less cramped, more open version of Times Square. I generally avoid…

  10. London: Window at St. Margaret’s Church

    Date 22 Jul 2017
    Westminster Abbey was where I went on my third day in London. I didn’t realize how majestic it would be until I walked there from the tube station near Hyde Park. It was very difficult to decide what to paint “live” because of all the beautiful architecture. I wanted to…
