Our next goal was Southern France where we wanted to visit a friend in Toulouse. We found a good connection to Toulouse, so that we first would fly to the city of Carcassonne and spend there 4 to 5 hours before taking a train to Toulouse. That gave us plenty of time to be amazed by the beauty of this medieval city.
One of the most beautiful things about Christmas in Europe is for sure the Christmas Markets. For 3 to 5 weeks central squares and boulevards of cities are covered with huts selling hot local delicacies, hot wine, lots of sweets and handicraft items.
While being in Porto, we felt very relaxed. The city does not hurry, people are calm and even the rough Atlantic coastal climate does not seem to disturb them. The nights here are beautiful and the evenings long lasting.
After staying in familiar cities London and Paris for quite a while, we decided that it is the time for real discoveries. We wanted to see places, we have never been to before and this is how we went to the Western edge of Europe.
In this post I would like to share my thoughts about having a harmonious relationship in different situations. Therefore, this post is divided into three sections depicting each of them: moving in together, working with your partner and travelling as a couple.

After the colourful and contrastive impression of the first two days, we stayed in Paris for a whole month. We worked as a designer and developer couple at that time, therefore, we did need an apartment with a more or less good table, good internet connection and a kitchen.
This post is the sequel for «A Beautiful Day in Paris. Part I». After the lunch, I propose to take a look at the Southern part of the city – the left bank (fr.: La Rive Gauche). Let us begin by taking the subway to the station Cité.
Lots of people nowadays are disappointed of Paris. It is called dirty and crowded. People say, it stinks. They say, they are afraid of getting robbed and so on, and so on… So, is the “City of Love” just a myth?
It was a very beautiful day in Paris – shiny, warm, with a clear blue sky. We were excited about our trip and we woke up early.
It was one year ago that we started a one-year-trip that brought us to more than 20 different places and left us with some memorable stories. And now, as this trip is over, we think, it’s time to invite you to travel with us through our stories…
