Cecelia and Eleanor Are Traveling to Europe!

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Cecelia and I will be traveling around Europe for twelve days at the end of the month.

We will be visiting London, Paris, and the Geneva area.

Now, I’ve already spent substantial time in both London and Paris, but I know that there is so much more to explore, and I have never spent anytime in Switzerland.

And that’s where you come in, dear readers. I need some advice. Do you have any favorite spots in these areas? Any place that you think that we would enjoy seeing? Please leave any suggestions in the comments!

Expect many exciting travel posts in the coming weeks as we prepare for, go on, and return from our trip.

I also realize that I haven’t plugged my tumblr in quite a while. If you’re into that kind of thing, it’s also called Eleanor Called Ella.

  1. Never been there but….Paris has catacombs.

    Also, Westminster Abbey is awesome.

    But a friend of mine has some recs:

    “The whole 6eme arrondissement, particularly Sevres-Babylone and the booksellers on the Left Bank of the Seine. Don’t miss the Louvre obviously, and be sure to check out whatever temporary exhibit there is; the Pinacotheque, near the Madeleine, is also a great art museum. Also, the Marais is a beautiful neighborhood to walk around in and while you’re in the area, the Museum of Modern Art (Centre Pompidou) is really great. There’s also great vintage shopping behind that museum. And it’s also nice to go look at the stores on Avenue Montaigne. To eat, Paul is pretty good chain with awesome bread, and in the 6eme there’s a great bakery called Poilane and a great macaron shop called Pierre Herme.”

    That’s it from her. Have a great time!

    • Thanks for the recommendations! They’re really great and helpful! I’ve never been to any of the shops or restaurants you mentioned or Sevres-Babylone, so I’ll have to check them out!

      The last time I was in London it was Easter and we went to Westminster Abbey for the Easter Vigil service. It was absolutely lovely. I’ll be there on a Sunday again, so I may go to a service.
