A Visit To The French Version of McD’s, Quick Burger Restaurant

QuickWhen visiting international destinations, I always visit McDonald’s to check out what local menu items might be available.

We also like to try local fast food burger shops. I haven’t written about many of them but  you can check out my review of one in Bahrain here.

During a recent trip to France, we had a long list of places to dine at. One that I hoped to try was the French version of McDonald’s called Quick. Continue reading A Visit To The French Version of McD’s, Quick Burger Restaurant

Find Out What We Tried At McDonald’s Monaco

McDonaldsOver winter break 2018, the Michael W Travels family visited France and Monaco.

(Find out what we did with 5.5 hours in Monaco, one of the tiniest countries in the world.)

During our visit to Monaco we had lunch at McDonald’s. I had hoped to come across some local menu-items to order but we didn’t have much luck. The menu is virtually the same as at McDonald’s France, just cheaper! Continue reading Find Out What We Tried At McDonald’s Monaco

5.5 Hours In Monaco, One Of The Smallest Countries In The World

monacoThe Michael W Travels family visited France during winter break of 2018.

We booked our flights to Paris due to receiving $2,700 for a bump on Delta Air Lines on the way home from the previous year’s winter break trip.

Kim and I had each separately visited Paris almost 20 years ago. This trip would be our first time visiting together as well as a first visit for the kids. When I booked the flight to Paris, I had to squeeze in a visit to a new country and Monaco was the perfect option! Continue reading 5.5 Hours In Monaco, One Of The Smallest Countries In The World

What Did We Try At McDonald’s France?

McDonalds FranceMcDonald’s isn’t a restaurant that we frequent while at home but it’s a must when we’re visiting international destinations.

We like to visit McDonald’s for a variety of reasons while traveling. I love trying out the local menu items available. The kids LOVE McD’s due to the toys. (The food is definitely secondary.) It’s also nice to eat something (relatively) familiar while away.

During our recent winter break trip, we made stops at McDonalds France a few times. From what I recall, one time was just to grab a quick dessert. Continue reading What Did We Try At McDonald’s France?

This Will Have Your Kid Not Wanting To Leave The Museum

museumDuring our travels, we like to visit a museum or two during the course of our trips. We try to find a museum that’s geared towards kids, but many we visit aren’t.

Art museums aren’t always the most fun for kids and it can definitely be annoying to hear questions like when are we leaving or are we almost finished constantly!

The Michael W Travels family recently got back from a trip to France and Monaco. During our trip, we were surprised by how much Lucas enjoyed the Musee d’ Orsay in Paris. While in Nice, we visited the Chagall Museum. Continue reading This Will Have Your Kid Not Wanting To Leave The Museum

When you think of France, the first thing that probably comes to most people’s minds is the Eiffel Tower.

During a visit to Paris years back, I walked up the Eiffel Tower in uncomfortable sandals due to my luggage being delayed. I’m looking forward to visiting the famed tower again during an upcoming visit, hopefully… Continue reading Due To Protests, the Eiffel Tower Will Close This Weekend

We love experiences which include animals while traveling.

In 2012, I wrote about My Top 5 Animal Encounters. It could probably use an update with A Visit to the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital being added to the list.

One day I’d love to pay a visit to see the swimming pigs in the Bahamas. Tragedy struck these special pigs a few months back. Who knows if regulations will change, stopping tourists from interacting with the pigs in the future.

I came across another interesting animal experience on Corsica France but it might be wise to keep your distance. Continue reading Sunbathing Cows on the Beach in Corsica, France- Don’t Take Selfies!

When it comes to visiting museums I tend to gravitate towards those focused on bizarre topics. Many of them usually focus on food or oddities.

Here are some interesting museums I’ve visited:

I just came across news of a new museum opening in France dedicated to Bordeaux wine! Continue reading A French Museum All About Bordeaux Wine Is Opening

Guests Find Dead Body At Airbnb Rental

Airbnb Rental

I’ve mentioned in the past how we’ve enjoyed our stays with Airbnb in recent years. (Check out a review of our first Airbnb stay in Singapore here.)

(If you haven’t tried Airbnb yet, sign up with my referral link to get a $20 credit. I’ll get a credit too after you complete your first stay.

However, what one group of friends found on the property of their rental would make just about anybody want to checkout ASAP. Continue reading Guests Find Dead Body At Airbnb Rental
