Watching the Seasons Change in Palais Royal

5

Palais Royal is tucked behind the Louvre and the Tulleries. I used to dismiss it on the map and never made a point to visit. Now, its one of my favorite places in Paris to people watch. This month I was able to watch the seasons change as I walked through the garden. I will treasure these moments and thank goodness for me the pictures will bring me great memories for years to come.

Towards the end of the month they clipped the trees and the leaves were gone.

Reflecting and taking it all in

4

As you might be able to tell from the last post I am doing a lot of thinking and reflecting. These last few weeks have been amazing and a lot of work. I haven’t begun to scratch the surface as far as editing and combing through new images and the holidays are just around the corner. I am truly grateful for each day that I am able to spend traveling. Not to mention the people I have been meeting have been wonderful. Here is a photo from around the corner from my Paris apartment and is one of my favorite parts of walking home.

Weekend in Paris – Autumn

0

I wish I wasn’t still jetlagged but it seems to have gotten the best of me. Since leaving Paris 6 months ago I have been dreaming about coming back. I am here and sometimes it doesn’t feel real. In some ways nothing has changed which is great. But in just 6 months there have been new places that have popped up that I find along my walks. Of course my favorite part is the Fall crisp air and the crunchy leaves on the ground.

My Paris Fall Wish List

2

Since my decision to go back to Paris this Fall I have been creating lists upon lists. Places I want to see for the first time and some places I want to see again for the 10th time. Favorite bakeries and a few restaurants that I missed out on my last trip. Those lists I will share with you another time. Today is My Paris Fall Wish List. Places I want to see the Autumn leaves fill with colored leaves.

I would love to know if you have any places you would love to see in the Autumn.

 

 

An afternoon in Palais Royal

1

Today I took a long walk from Montmartre to the Seine. Its been a busy couple of weeks and I haven’t had a chance to do this walk in a while. I have my first visitor coming this weekend so I wanted to sneak it in. It was a beautiful afternoon in Paris so I picked up a little lunch on my walk and parked myself in the Palais Royal gardens.

Walking through Europe

0

This weekend I was at the Lincoln Park Art Festival here in Chicago. I had a large photograph on display of Lisbon, Portugal. There was much debate over the photo since a lot of people thought it was Paris. I have a similar photograph from Paris from the Palais Royal. Europe is filled with beautiful architecture!
