London, you don't stop seducing me every time I come to visit you.
Your houses, your shops, your language, your restaurants... You put so much glitter on my eyes and my bank account does not thank you but when we love we do not count? If you think Paris is expensive wait until your first stay in London ;)
Many people think : "Food in London = meals not healthy" and yet... French gastronomy has to stand out!
Here is a list of restaurants where you can also order vegetarian/vegan and gluten free
My 4 favorites restaurants in London
Dalloway terrace: A great place for brunch (PS: I'm a big fan of brunch!) the menu is varied, there is something for all tastes, sweet/salty, the dishes are REALLY very good for affordable prices.
Fine foods: In the Borough district, not far from the tower bridge you will find this small Italian restaurant which offers a lot of fresh specialties that you can take away. The prices of the restaurant are correct for the incredible quality of the meals that were served! I remember like it was yesterday ... I even think that I sometimes dream of it at night ...
Vanilla Black: A vegan X vegetarian gourmet restaurant? Yes, it's possible. This great restaurant hidden in a narrow lane in London will have us more than surprised! We both have the 6 races with his wines; one vegetarian and the other vegan for my boyfriend. It is quite expensive but worth the price for sophistication and research dishes ... We forget very quickly the addition after the 6 glasses of wine XD.
The shard: I was expecting that the shard will be a lot of more expensive but the price / quality ratio is affordable for the view which is just breathtaking.
–> To give you an idea, the photos of the dishes tasted in these restaurants are available on my story light instagram LONDON (@marcie_mft)
London, it's really expensive? Oh yeah!
The transport from Paris is really cheap, count from 50 to 100 € in eurolines or ouibus.
The Eurostar? A tourist trap super expensive or they are not even able to put USB cables for the price of 150 € minimum one way …
And the boat? I do not think there are many who make the experience apart for the Normands but living in Le Havre my first means of transport to go to London was the boat.
Boat Le Havre- Portsmouth + Eurolines Portsmouth - London 50 to 80 €
Renting a suitable airbnb in central London, that's another story.
Transport, the subway is simple, however again expensive. I complained about the price of the metro ticket in Paris constantly increasing, but by realizing the price of it in London, I quickly stop to complain!
Regarding what “everybody says” about the weather it's always cold and gray in London, it's non sense, lucky you may say, but it was always hot when I went to London: D.
Hello to all of you :)
I come back to you with an article quite different from the others ... As #Traveler's we are led to have traveled with a lot of different airlines always trying to find the best services, a flight not difficult and an attractive price.
So, I can tell you what a disappointment to have traveled with the new low-cost airlines of Air France Joon ... I have never spent a flight so terrible on the way home, even air china was a lil' better !
Joon, the new low-cost airline launched by Air France
Low coast? I seriously doubt about it!
Paris - Seychelles with 1 checked baggage of 23 KG will have cost in total 830 € because yes indeed! you have the possibility to book the same flight without luggage for the modest sum of 730 €! Congratulations! I like this new concept of "Low-cost" made in Air France!
Ps: I want to clarify that this offer applies only for France and that for the same price from Austria you have the baggage included and you travel with two planes for the price of one!
You see the irony in the story...
Air France does not even inform its customers when you booked the flight that it will be with Joon. How it is possible ? It is only at the end of the payment of the tickets that I note that the flight will take place with Joon and not Air France. The plane is correct, the flight attend also BUT I thought I would die during this 10 hours of flight (and I am used since the age of 05 years flying 08h for Guadeloupe or I sleep like a baby) .
Joon will remain the first plane where I was not cold but where I thought die of hot!
So advice to all of you, choose well the airline with which you will travel.
Would you like a full article on the companies I've traveled with? good points ? negative? Let me know.
Although Austria is not yet a very popular tourist destination (in France) it deserves to be interested very closely.
I spent a week where I discovered: Linz, Vocklabruck, Ramsau am Dachstein mountain, Hallstatt, Gosau lakes and Vienna.
Mid-August, shift after my trip to the Seychelles I'm back in Europe, this time to a destination less expected.
I fly from CGD and I arrive in 1h30 in Vienna, Austria. You probably do not know, but this city has been elected:
09 times "city that offers the best quality of life" OF THE WORLD!
Certainly, Austria isn't the "tropical" destination of your dreams for your summer vacation, and yet, it holds many surprises.
Austria: the perfect country for hiking fans
For my part, it was a first time and I loved it! We took 05h in the mountain Hocklecken. At the top of the mountain a small house allows you to eat traditional Austrian meals :).
I am also going to the Dachstein mountain for finding spot for a photoshoot that will take place in a few days :).
#Linz: a surprising artistic city
#HOEHENRAUSCH is a closed and open circuit that will allow you to admire the city of Lintz while discovering the work of more than 40 artists on the theme of water until October 14th.
#Salzburg: the city of Mozart
A small town with amazing full of charms by its traditional streets and castles.
#Hallstatt: the popular village of Asians
Hallstatt is more than a pretty little village; it is currently the oldest village in Europe still living. The Asians are so fans that a replica of Hallstatt was made in China.
#TIPS If you do not want to be invaded by tourists I advise you to go there from 07h until 10h.
#LOVE for the lakes of Gosau: two magical days where I was able to make a hike of 3 hours to discover the three lakes (or rather two in summer)
#Vienna: the best city to live in the world X9
Vienna deserves a lot of attention and a day and a half is not enough to discover this city which I do not doubt full of surprises.
I was able to go to the "Rue de la Thirst" where you can enjoy wine directly made in the garden by the vineyards. The street is long ... 30 minutes walk before you get to the top where we have incredible views of the city so do stay too much in each restaurant;)
Which airline to choose?
Level (Vueling) offers very attractive prices and you can easily find prices 02 ways at 70 €.
The first way was with Air Austria and on the return with Level (vueling) I pay for less than 100 € by booking 01 weeks in advance.
I was able to enjoy all the traditional Austrian meals all week and I can tell you that some are as surprising as the XD pancake soup.
I put you in picture my favorites J
The quality of life in Austria is amazing, I relived my childhood: The smell of bread from the bakery, smell fresh fruits and vegetables, drink tap water (without smell) and drink water of the lake ( this is new and so good lol) ....
I hope through this article that you will have another vision on this beautiful country :-)
Mallorca is over more than 04 months and we really want to share with you this our experience of this beautiful Spanish island where we spent our time together.

Back with VUELING
Marcie flew with VUELING for 4 days to MALLORCA (June 10th to 14th). The ticket (roundtrip) only was 90€.
Andreas tried the new airline LAUDAMOTION and only paid 9,99€ ONE WAY,
P.S: You have the possibility to have 20 € tickets with RYANAIR departing from Beauvais airport.
This time we decided to book a hotel which is more far from the capital: Hotel Bella Collina l Vintage Hotel 1953 #PAGUERA
Positives points: UNIQUE design for art lovers and Instagram pictures XD
Negatives points: There are only two unique plugs: one in the bathroom and the 2nd in the hallway, none next to the bed so it was not very practical :D
#INDISPENSABLE The car rental is essential and at lower cost: 65 € / 4days CRRRAAAZZZYYY !!
Check out: HIPER-RENTACAR.COM
Marcie arrived at 8am and had to wait for Andreas who arrived at 2pm ... This first day was #restday then we could go to dinner at the restaurant la Gritta which has just a breathtaking view!
We went to discover the most beautiful cities of Mallorca to prepare our photoshoot with our Model from Austria (Andrea Ager)
So we did a road trip from the morning to the evening. We could explore Valldemossa, Déia, Port Soller (where we did a short break for lunch). We have finished our trip at the city Fornalutx.
Our favorite #CITY: Fornalutx
It's a quiet little town (where you can park your car easily - in Déià it's impossible!) and it is sooo peaceful - like we are <3.
We sipped a small #BIG pure lemon juice for 2 € at the restaurant Calzone.
Our favorite #FOOD: The OCEA restaurant bar at Port Soller, smoothies and avocado toast are a real treat <3.
When we returned to the hotel we decided to do a stop at the Paguera beach. There we had a delicious dinner just a few meters off to our hotel.
We will take photos and videos for the next 2 days!
For Mallorca, Andreas is the photographer and Marcie is the videographer.
For our first shooting session, we have selected following locations:
# RETURNHOTEL1H30 outch the alarm clock at dawn well pricked!
The alarm woke us up at 03:00 in the morning #LETSGO we had to leave the hotel to pick up the model, Andrea- Together we drove to the makeup artist, Diana Hang. It was our second and last session of our PHOTO l VIDEO shoot.
The session took place at the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorque and we already finished at 08:30 in the morning....
The return to the hotel (30min from Palma de Mallorque) was very hard! We also had breakfast in #Zombiemode LoL! Then big sleep until 14:00 ...
The motivation was not there but we had a great desire to go to the REACH Caves so we gathered all the energy we had left and went to the caves. It was a 1,5h drive!
We were not disappointed - it was sooo nice! ;)
Just 10min from the caves, you have this beautiful beach ... #CALAANGUILA a little corner of paradise isolated as we love it. Relax power 10000%
For the restaurant, we stopped at the restaurant ROLAND in the city PORTP CRISTO. Like Marcie the owner was French too - TOP <3
The dinner was very nice ;)
#Timetopack It’s time to go ... :(
This trip was beautiful and we would not have imagined it better!
If you want a cheap holiday in Europe this destination is perfect for you!
