In coming to Paris for just a short weekend trip, I tried to keep my list of “must-sees” limited. Both Ali and I have been here before, so the main sites we had already seen. This meant we could be more relaxed. I wanted to see an outdoor market so I started searching for possibilities. I ran across Rue Cler mentioned as an outdoor market. It was close to the Eiffel Tower, so seemed an ideal spot. Here is a look at it.
Feldkirch is at the very western tip of Austria. It is a small town around the corner from Liechtenstein and our initial destination when going to visit the small mountain principality. It has a castle on the hill and a fast running mountain river. The medieval feel is still there in places as well. The town is really worth visiting especially if you are in the area for Liechtenstein.
A few weeks ago Ali and I went to Paris for the weekend. It was the last weekend before she went on her round-the-world trip and we wanted to enjoy some time together not dealing with apartment renovations. We had both been to Paris before so there was not so much pressure to see everything. We of course did the big sites. I had not been to Montmarte, so this was the one thing on my list to see. Here is a bit of the ups and downs in Montmarte.
This is the second part of a look at Liechtenstein. We move out from the capital and look at some other places outside of Vaduz. I have the impression that the vast majority of tourists through Liechtenstein stop in Vaduz for lunch and not much else. This post should help show some other places like Malbun.
One of the reasons I moved to Europe was to do weekend trips to new places. I have not done that as much as I have wanted. This weekend however we did just that. My wife and I took a few days off of the stress of dealing with our renovations and went to Liechtenstein.
