Friday Foto - Paris River Cruise

A river cruise can be a bit touristy but I think it is a great way to view the city — especially at night when the entire city is illuminated. Most cruises last for about 60 minutes and there are multiple tour operators. I hear the food is pretty bad on the diner cruises but I've done one so I can't give first-hand insight.

Wednesday Wanderings: Provins

My wife and I recently wanted to get out of Paris for a day so we decided to head to the small medieval town of Provins. Provins is located about an hour and a half southeast of Paris. It’s a little tricky to get to because you don’t take the RER or a normal train, but a special commuter train. It’s officially called the RER P, but you leave from the normal train platforms in the Gare de l’Est. It is a bit confusing but it it is actually pretty easy once you look at it. Luckily, the nice thing is that a train leaves every 45 mins past the hour so if you miss one, your day trip isn’t ruined.
