South of France Dreaming

14

Its easy to fall in love with the South of France when you are taken care of like I was at La Bruyle. While staying in the South I was able to explore the neighbors a bit while taking a walk down the gravel roads. I know the roses are much higher now than during my visit and the garden is full with berries. So many reasons to go back!

Venice light – From the archives

6

I have been working on a few exciting projects for 2015/2016 that have been keeping me busy. I recently was digging through the archives looking through my Venice pictures and thought I would share a few of my favorites. I don’t think I will make it to Venice this trip in October but it still remains one of my favorite cities.

Paris apartment hunting

2

I have heard rumors of how stressful Paris apartment hunting can actually be. In the past I have found it challenging but not too bad. This last time around its getting to be more difficult. I am not sure if its because of the success and popularity of airbnb or the trend of renting apartments in Paris. I will have to fill you all in on the good/bad details of the apartment hunt after my current apartment is confirmed. Fingers crossed please! Once its confirmed I can start the fun start of planning. I can’t wait to catch up with friends over coffee and glasses of wine at the many outdoor cafes in the city. Oh and I plan on traveling to another country! Any guesses?

Windows on the Seine – Nightfall in Paris

Windows on the Seine - Nightfall in Paris

One of my favorite times in Paris is when the lights turn on in the city as its just starting to get dark. I tried to get up to a rooftop to watch the sunset and the terrace had closed. I ran to the Seine to see what was left of the sunset and I was able to capture this photograph and the exact moment I love so much.

Versailles in Blue with La Cuisine Paris

0

My trip to Versailles with La Cuisine Paris was a full day including a tour of the Potager du Roi, a visit to the Versailles market where we picked up delicious cheeses, a four course meal including a cheese course (from the market), and a ticket to explore Versailles. 

While walking through the town of Versailles I shot these beautiful blue doors. The town is just a short train ride away from Paris and even if you don’t visit the Chateau the town is beautiful!

I spent a lot of time walking the streets of Paris today. If I told you everywhere I was today by foot it will exhaust you! I am finally resting my feet and camera for another full day tomorrow. Here are a few of my favorites from today.
