When I set out on my journey to photograph carousels in France this summer I stopped in Spain first. I heard about the amusement park at the top of the hill that was over 100 years old called Tibidado. I took the train, to the bus, and then a cable car high up on the hill to find this amusement park. It wasn’t what I was hoping for because a lot of the rides weren’t in working order. But there was a gem of a carousel.

Growing up my grandmother had an antique carousel horse in her living room. As a child, my sister and I used to play on the carousel horse when we went to visit. Now that I am older, when I see a carousel it reminds me of my childhood and puts a smile on my face. Here is a recent carousel photograph from my travels. Stay tuned for more carousels this week!
One of my favorite things to do during my latest trip to Paris was sit in the lawn in the Tulleries. It was my first thing I did this trip and I planned to do it everyday. For people that haven’t been to Paris or don’t know the Tulleries is a garden outside of the Louvre museum. People gather here all day long to picnic, play music with friends, or just lay in the grass. Its also great people watching. If I was in Paris right now this is where I would want to be!
