Castlelandia with friends

It was cold, rainy and the day blew it our face as we bought the $15 euro tickets to see the castle.  The sky was all monotone as we ate cheese, arugula and ham baguettes, with a side of espresso.  Chaumont sur  Loire ... a castle by the river, was it worth it? Of course. Not to mention our stop in the nearby town to eat some delicious cake <3 Thank to my awesome friends in France! :)

Nights of Paris

  Walking to my hotel room, in windy and a little chilly night. The hum of the traffic is like background music to the soundtrack of any large city. The sky is midnight blue, the people speak in a myriad of languages in the worlds most visited city. The lights infuse the city of love with that eternal romance that is is donned with. The Seine runs slowly, ever constant, witness to every event from wars, to coronations to dreams of great writers and artists who loved the city. Paris at night, is one of the greatest memories one can sketch into the book of our life ...

Paris awakens ...

Sunrise on the 16th arrondisement ....

A quiet early 6am morning at Metro Republique. Even the doves are sleeping still, restaurants were opening, the chestnut seller was setting up his stand outside the metro and the chill of September was grey and ominous. 
It was a perfect first morning to wake up in Paris, camera in hand and a head of full of wonderings of what Paris would be like.
