Climbing the Eiffel Tower with my best friend had taken up much of the first night of my four day trip to Paris, and by the time we were done I no longer felt like eating, which was a shame as we'd planned on getting a nice, cliche, French meal. Instead we decided to meet... Continue Reading →

The Passages Of Paris

A couple of years ago I had some friends come visit Australia from the US and as I toured them around Melbourne and through the various lane ways and arcades one commented on how Parisian they seemed to be.

I Peed On Top Of The Eiffel Tower.

Prior to leaving Australia I had arranged to reunite with my best friend Grace underneath the Eiffel Tower, the first night I'd be in Paris, at 8:00pm.
