I’m Not Sad To See Bullfighting Go In Spain

Allow me to first clarify that I am not a radical animal rights activist.

6 Best Places To Eat Dessert In Paris

Paris may be known for its decadent, mutli-course meals, but nothing says delicacy like the grand finale: dessert. Actually, it’s not unusual in Paris to mosey into a patisserie or chocolaterie for a midday snack, but one so fantastic that you’d hardly believe it was just a quick bite. The […]
