I thought this was cool idk; rebloging this for future reference

Pinterest Paris mapThe biggest concern every traveler encounters when planning a trip to Paris is deciding which neighborhood to call your home away from home. With 20 arrondissements (districts) to sift through, each one has a different culture, population and sights to see. Here are three important things to know:

  1. Rive Droite (Right Bank) refers to the northern part of the Seine river, while Rive Gauche (Left Bank) refers to all the arrondissements in the southern part of the river. 
  2. 20 arrondissements are arranged in the form of a clockwise spiral, beginning with the first one in the center.
  3. It’s unfair to say that Left Bank is better than the Right Bank or vise versa. But as a traveler, I’d highly recommend looking for hotels or Airbnb in these arrondissements: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 11th. Go through the descriptions below and you’ll see why!

1st Arrondissement / Right Bank (mostly)

“Heathers: The Musical” musical review

This post is gonna contain lots of quotes from the musical because it’s so very! (if it’s in bold letters, it’s a quote)

Heathers is probably the first musical that I actually loved to death! (Oh the irony!!!) This musical is brilliantly made! If you liked the movie Mean Girls, then this is probably one musical that you don’t want to miss. Unfortunately, this wonderful show has come to an end. On August 4th, 2014, Heathers was closed. I don’t know that the producers were thinking. Maybe they had a brain tumor for breakfast. Either way, this show should have run a lot longer than it did.  Continue reading

‘Newsies’ musical review

Newsies is like the One Direction of Broadway. It’s the musical that has a huge fan base, a lot of haters, but it’s really just an okay musical. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Newsies! With a burning passion. But its, honestly not the best musical out there. (I’ll probably get some hate for saying that.) But, whatever. This review is about the Broadway musical, not the 1992 movie.  Continue reading

“Bonnie and Clyde” musical review

I was really looking forward to seeing this musical! I had heard many great things about it and people have said great things about it. I had to watch the b-legged version of it on YouTube because 1) they closed it off of Broadway 2) even if it was still on Broadway, I probably couldn’t go see it due to time and money. Luckily, if you search it on YouTube, you could probably go find the full musical!  Continue reading

‘Into the Woods’ movie review

Okay, first thing, this a review for the 2014 MOVIE! Not the musical, I will have a review for that later 🙂

I was super excited for this movie! I was counting down the days for it! I listened to the soundtrack about 24601 times! In the theatre I was singing along to the prologue song!  The people sitting around me and were getting kind of annoyed…whoops. But it was worth it!  Continue reading

‘Carrie’ movie/musical/book review

For the past 20 minutes, I was staring at the title of this post. I could not decide what to category to put it in. Carrie, as many people know, is not only a movie (Carrie has 2 version of the movie), but it’s also a book and a musical. As you can see, I was in a fix when I was choosing which category it should go in. In the end, I decided that it will title it after/discuss all 3 versions of this great work.  Continue reading

‘Next to Normal’ musical review

I am a huge musical fan! If you know me in real life, then you know that I’m absolutely obsessed! But for some reason I was reluctant to watch this musical. I had heard the soundtrack several times and though I did enjoy the song Everything Else, I just never really wanted to watch it. Then there was one day during the winter break when I had free time and I was in the mood to watch a musical. The first thing that popped up when I looked up musicals on Tumblr, was Next to Normal. I decided that I had put it off for way too long and I sat down to watch it. (Since I’m broke, I was forced to watch the b-legged version of it on YouTube)  Continue reading
