Next we moved on to Paris – about a three hour train ride through Belgium on Thalys railways. Again we rented an apartment on airbnb.com, the studio was very small, the toilet was down the hall and shower in the room, but the price was right, the $1000 a night Eiffel tower view was right outside our romantic french doors with balcony and the metro station was right outside our door….sometimes convenience trumps luxury.

While we are a Tattoo Surf and Skate shop, we have, are and will be doing quite a bit of traveling. We are planning some changes to our blog. We will be incorporating some travel blog material to our site including reccomendations, photos and tips for travel and places we have traveled to. Basically documenting the good, the bad and the ugly of our travels. We’re constantly asked about the places we travel to and we’d like to share our experiences with the world. Don’t worry, we’ll still be posting about rad tattoos, guest tattoo artists, local events and local surfing as well!!
