Discovering Le Havre, France

When I went on my Grand European Cruise, I knew we would be stopping in some places that I wouldn’t have chosen to visit if I was planning a trip on my own, but only because I didn’t know they existed!

This ended up being a great aspect to joining a cruise since we got a chance to visit non-touristy cities in Europe and see how people live in their everyday lives (and they DO eat beautifully decorated pastries even if there aren’t many tourists to attract)! Plus, I discovered that I absolutely love one of the cities we visited, Óbidos, Portugal!

However, today is all about Le Havre, France.

While we didn’t have to go through customs when arriving in France from Spain, we did have to exit this area once the ship docked.

I’m glad we did, otherwise I wouldn’t have seen this sign, which shows that Le Havre is a World Heritage Site. Very impressive!

One of the first places I saw was this charming square with a museum and lovely cone-shaped trees. Not a bad start first impression of Le Havre!

Since this is France, I should have expected to see many patisseries and shops selling macarons and exquisite pastries!

Dramatic beauty of Iceland is showcased at Þingvellir national park

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll find that I’ve been posting a few pics from my trip to Iceland. What’s most astounding to me about Iceland is that it offers so many varied landscapes on its small island. Today let’s visit the dramatic vistas of Þingvellir National Park! Þingvellir National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it’s easy to see why. It has some beautifully unique landscapes that I haven’t seen anywhere else in the world, much less within driving distance from each other. Shall we take a look around?
