Its been a very eventful couple of days for me in Paris. I can’t share all of the details but I will fill you in during the Fall months. Paris has been filled with adventures. I have been here for 2 weeks and still pinch myself, I feel so lucky. This city is beautiful and I am still discovering all that it has to offer. So here is a little sparkle from Paris.
Today was pretty darn cold in Paris! I still did my usual very long walk which ended after it was dark. I was headed in to warm up and I looked up at Hotel De Ville on the back side and saw this beautiful chandelier in the window. It appears as it is playing peek a boo. Something so stunning hiding behind the window.
The Palace in Vienna rivals the beauty and elegance of the Palace of Versailles but it much closer to the city. Only 10 minutes by train from the center of the city Schonbrunn Palace is a must see in Vienna. I will be posting a few more pictures in the coming weeks of the inside and outside of the Palace. I pulled out my camera and checked my bag at the front. Once entering the rooms I quickly found out that you can not photograph anything. Of course this was disappointing but didn’t stop me from photographing. I looked around and there was no one from security or staff from the Palace. So of course away I went loving all of the beautiful chandeliers in all of the rooms. The final room was a room filled with a fresco ceiling, mirrors, and beautiful gold chandeliers. John F Kennedy was invited to a ball that took place in this room. The room is long and narrow and is similar to the hall of mirrors in Versailles. Of course at this point I was being yelled at by security for “no photos” this didn’t stop me. I of course had the fear that they would take my memory card from my camera and I would loose everything. Luckily I escaped and I am able to share the photos with you!
With Valentines Day just a month away it seems romance is in the air. I love the romantic look of these photographs from the French Pastry shop Laudree. I was so happy to find one in Laussane and Geneva. I am off to Venezia for the weekend so stay tuned for photographs of canals and gondolas. The romance of Venice!
