Amanda's Travel Tips for Tokyo

What are the best places to eat and drink in Tokyo?

Sushi Midori in the Ginza corridor was amazing! It was affordable but INCREDIBLE sushi. There is a long wait and you get a ticket so you know when your number is called. But it's so worth it! I understand why there is always a wait and we are so glad we had the opportunity to go!

What are the best things to do in Tokyo?

TeamLab is such a unique experience. We were so excited to get tickets while we were there. It's a truly immersive art experience. We love to visit the Shinjuku Golden Gai and spend the evening there. There are so many hidden food spots and one of our favorite bars to visit- Albatross (as seen on Anthony Bourdain.) The Tokyo Sky Tree is such a fun way to see the entire city. And there were so many beautiful parks! Ueno-koen, Hibiya Park, Yoyogi Park by Meiji shrine and Takeshita St, Koishikawa Korakuen and Shinjuku Goygen. If you have time, make the day trip to Lake Yamakaguchi for a view of Mount Fuji. It was a once in a lifetime trip!

What is the best tip for a romantic getaway in Tokyo?

It's so romantic to visit Tokyo during the holidays. In the Ginza where we stayed, they had so many lights and holiday decorations. It was so beautiful walking around and seeing all the holiday window displays. If you do any shopping, they often have special Japan only gifts you may be surprised with, if you make a purchase. Make sure to book Flytographer if you go! That was a highlight of our trip together.

Sean's Travel Tips for Paris

What are the best places to eat and drink in Paris?

Benoit is an icon of French staples, and we surely enjoyed it. But for a more cost-effective dinner of the same French staples, I'd recommend Le Primerose. Situated a few steps from the Metro stop La Motte - Picquet Grenelle (serving 6, 8, & 10), this simple cafe serves solid renditions of the classics: boeuf bourguignon, cordon bleu, and rack of lamb.

What are the best things to do in Paris?

We enjoyed many of Paris' iconic sights. Perhaps one of our favorite moments was sitting in a cafe, sipping a beverage while local artist, Alan, sketched life-like portraits of both our children on a side street near Sacré-Cœur on the hill of Montmartre. This relatively cheap memento will remind us of our fun on this memorable trip!

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Paris?

We're by no means experts, but we find great success in truly listening to our kids. having a schedule is great... for adults. But sometimes you've got to skip a museum and head to a playground for some silly time. Not only does it let them re-charge their fun-o-meter, but they also get the chance to meet with children from different parts of the world.
