It was a real help in Paris!

Favourite Five: Apps by Steph

Ok so now I’m up with my favourite five apps.

Where my family at?

Where my family at?

1. Friend Locator by Life360 (or Family Locator)

It sounds a bit creepy, but with this app, you can keep track of others. The good thing is, however, that the other people need to first register, otherwise they cannot be tracked. They can then check in whenever they want and there are lots of settings that you can alter to make sure that your location is not constantly tracked. You can create ‘circles’ or groups of people who can all see each other and you can send messages to the other members as well. Another weird thing is that you can find any crimes/sexual criminals in the area – they show up as small dots. Interesting stuff and questionable, but still a useful app! You may want to turn off the email notifications though, as these can get a bit annoying.

From Paris With Love

Ok, so I’m actually back in Stuttgart, but we had an amazing time in Paris with great weather and we managed to do basically everything on my extremely long list.

Sorry for being absent for a bit here, but between work and sleep, there hasn’t been much time for anything else!

Alright, so, Paris. You may have read my post about everything I wanted to accomplish while we were there. Well, we did almost everything!

Paris: Trip Planning

So I’m trying to figure out what to do during the 3 days that we’ll be in Paris.

We will be also be doing touristy things seeing as it’ll be Michael’s first time there and the last time I was there it was a bit of a rush and I had done little to no research.

I’ve started by writing a list of the must-sees and googling what others found to be worth a visit. Also it seems that there are a bunch of events on at exactly the time we are going.

Summer in the city

Well, it’s official, everything will be crowded with children because school holidays are in full force in Baden-Württemberg. Not only will the city be full, but all the popular (and even the less popular) travel destinations will be crowded and prices sky high.

This summer we are headed to London for a weekend for a family wedding, which we are all excited about. Besides that, however, we had nothing planned. I decided that this was not ok and even if aren’t keen on throwing money around…well, you know what they say…travel is something that you can buy, that makes you richer.

So, I am busily planning a trip to Paris! Not sure just yet if it’ll work out, but Michael has never been (I know, right? Even the whole Kok family has been there and it’s not even that far from Stuttgart!) and my friend from Sydney will be there for a few days.
