Backpacking in France

France is such an attractive country to visit. Why? It is because this nation, famous for fashion and the prestigious Cannes Festival, owns the world’s second-largest exclusive economic zone. This means more towering buildings, world-class establishments, and more profitable jobs than most countries. Even if France is now one of the richest in Europe, evidence of its rich history is preserved. This is one reason why the country is one of the favourite destinations for tourists. Despite the fact that its cities are filled with futuristic buildings, the government still assures that landmarks, which were witness to France’s most important days, are maintained. French officials are doing the right thing, as they not only help make the country a perfect tourist attraction, they also give younger generations the chance to see the things that shaped France. Among those that attract millions of visitors are the Palace of Versailles, Mont Saint-Michel, Nimes Arena, Somme battlefields, and Notre Dame Cathedral.

Visiting these places won’t be that hard. Though they are cities apart, you can still get into each of them without spending too much as France has so many hotels (many of them affordable) that can provide you with your needs for a backpacking activity. All you need to do is be prepared; make sure you’ve got all the gadgets to aid you in your trip. If you have an iPhone or tablet, then that’s perfect because it will come in handy not just for recording everything about your trip but also for logging on some poker sites during your rest. Backpacking is very tiring, physically and mentally. Poker is one of the most relaxing games in the world. It is also one of the biggest online games in France, maybe because it is the card game’s hometown. According to some historians, the game was first called Poque, a French word famous among soldiers during the Kingdom of France period. The game was brought to Canada and then to the United States, now it is a game played worldwide. This could be one reason why sites like are a hit among locals, the same reason why many of them want to follow the paths that professional French poker players like Bertrand Grospellier and Vanessa Rousso took.

Win Your Lovers Heart with this Romantic Getaway

If you are looking to rekindle the passion in your relationship or plan to woo the Girl of your dreams, there’s nothing as romantic as a weekend in Paris. So what are the ingredients you need to make your partner go doe eyed and realise that you are the star crossed lover they’ve been searching for all along.

The Apartment
The first impressions are always the most important, so you’ve got to get this one right. Not all Paris apartments have the same romantic feeling, so do a thorough search of the Internet before booking anything. Get a view over the Seine with the moon reflecting on the dappled rivers waters and the Eiffel Tower illuminated in the background and your partner will be falling into your arms. Choose a rundown hostel with creaking stairs, a tap that drips constantly and a toilet that doesn’t flush and it won’t matter how many rose petals you sprinkle on the bed, nothing will be happening on your date.

The Sites
The key to a great day in Paris is diversity. Instead of focusing on just one thing sample the best of the city. Mix a visit to the Palace of Versailles with shopping in the Triangle D’or and a trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower. It sounds like a lot to do in a day, but all of this walking around will help generate an appetite.

The Restaurant
With great views over the whole of Paris and lots of small intimate Bistro’s serving great food, Montmarte is one of the best areas in the whole of Paris to bring your partner. There’s no rush, relax and explore before finding a restaurant that you think is right for you. After food, take a stroll to the Musee de la Vie Romantique, a secluded villa with a small garden that is famous with lovers.

The Chocolate
Everyone likes to be treated and if there’s anything guaranteed to win over someone’s heart it’s a box of chocolates. Debauve et Gallais is one of the best chocolatiers in Paris and a visit here is not to be missed. Even if you only buy a small box of chocolates, I promise that this will be enough to win a kiss.

The Sunset
By this point in the day your partner should be melting in your arms, so as the sun gets ready to set it’s time to take them to the most popular romantic spot in Paris: Le Square du Vert Galant. This island located in the centre of the River Seine is the mist popular romantic spot in Paris. Under the shade of the trees and to the sound of the river lapping against the banks of the island it’s time to finish your perfect day with a long romantic kiss.
