Before an afternoon at Parc de Sceaux, I was invited by Discover Walks Paris to go on a food tour with a few other bloggers. This two-hour tour took place on the colorful Rue Montorgueil, known as the “800-year-old belly of Paris”. We sampled delicious cheese, meat, bread, and dessert while getting an insider’s view of the food scene here in Paris.
A few weeks ago, I was invited to help Microsoft recruit at ETH, a prestigious STEM university in Zurich. Switzerland is one of my favorite European countries, so of course I agreed to participate.
Tyler and I had visited Zurich a few years ago on our first Eurotrip and actually didn’t really like it compared to the other places we visited (Lauterbrunnen or Lucerne). We found the city to be too much of a “banker” town with ridiculously expensive entertainment and restaurant options.
However, thanks to some local tips from my friend Sara (Danke!) and a little more research, we ended up having a really nice stay in Zurich this time.
