There is a reason why I take so long to edit all the thousands of photos that end up being taken on my camera when I travel on holidays with Ju. I like to keep them as a source of therapy when times get a little crazy, or when I need a break from the wedding cycle. Travel photos make me happy :) They bring me back to the memories attached to the times when I was wandering along those streets. Or eating at those cafes. Or just sitting by the side and watching life walk by us as we rested our weary feet. Anyhow, these photos have been meaning to go up on the blog for quite some time, and I thought I'd share some of my adventures in Paris and France with you :)
Hope you enjoy them on this lovely thursday afternoon! :D
Everyone gets the regular view of the Eiffel Tower (and yes, I did it too!), but when I walked under it, the geometry was amazing.
The baguettes in Paris were YUMMM! :D
River Seine on a pretty blue-sky day :)
The Patheon was just down the road from where we stayed in Paris :)
We stayed in the Latin Quarter, reknowned for its amazing food, markets, and pastries :)
The geometry in the architecture in Paris was really amazing. I loved looking at it for hours! :D
The Louvre from various vantage points. We went on their free sunday admission day (apparently its the first sunday of every month!) and the place was PACKED!
Arc De Triomphe.
The Eiffel Tower is so pretty at night :)
Typical paris street life :)
We made it to a service at the Notre Dame Church!
People walked, cycled and trained everywhere in Paris.
The best part of being in this part of the world around this time was that days were really long... we were getting 9 to 10pm sunsets! :D We were usually sipping red wine, at a restaurant whenever we saw the sun go down.
This shot is a complete accident :P I was trying to take a shot of the Eiffel Tower at night, and I forgot I had left the camera on a very long exposure. Trippy effect! :D
Then we headed out to the country, to visit a castle region called Loire Valley. It really was gorgeous!
Happy Thursday everyone!!
