Eagan to Monaco

Many years ago as a poor college student studying in Germany, I almost made it to Monaco. Nice was nice but I didn't have enough money to get to Monaco so my sister and I trained back directly to Germany. Recently at the nearby Mall of America, I spotted this store and thought of Jilly, the Monte Carlo Daily Photo blogger. That's again as close as I came to Monaco ...

  1. You might have been to Munich, Germany. In italian, it's called: Monaco di Baviera.

  3. Well snap, Leif, I posted a fashion shop today, same you. Mine is Dior! Well what would you expect in Monaco! I loved your story and do hope you make it to Monaco one of these fine days - the red carpet will be laid out for you. Thanks for the link.

  5. A nice reminder, that it is the "inside" that counts, here, there, everywhere. Please have a good Wednesday.

  7. You have traveled a lot, so lovely stories to share!
    And you also speak French! Cool! :)
    I'm here trying to do my best, attending two different schools to learn French, all mornings and evenings, I need to confess it is driving me crazy! LOL
    j'espère que ça marche bien!

  9. It's fantastic that you and your sister actually traveled together! Maybe one day you will do so again and get to your dream destination? Can't dream if you don't buy a (lottery) ticket!!:) Good luck.
