In this week’s round-up of our ‘photo a day project’, we start off with a BANG, joining in on France’s most celebrated day of the year, National Day/Jessica’s birthday! Once the fireworks and soirées settled down, we wandered the wide Parisian avenues and narrow cafe-lined side streets, delighting in all the sweets on the menu. Paris definitely lives up to its reputation as one of the most mesmerisingly beautiful cities in the world.
July 14th 2014. Bastille Day. France pulled out all the stops for this year’s National Day celebrations, which commemorated a century since the beginning of World War One with the most spectacular choreographed fireworks and classical music performance we’ve ever seen.
July 15th 2013. Notre Dame. Paris seems to be going through a minor heatwave, so whilst queuing to enter one of the world’s most fabled cathedrals, we concluded that the Hunchback of Notre Dame may have just been a poor tourist who had succumbed to the heat.
July 16th 2014. La Seine. We were duly advised that, in order to experience true Parisian life, we must picnic by the Seine. So picnic we did.
July 17th 2014. Vineyards. You know you’re in a wine loving nation when there are vineyards in the heart of the capital city and it’s the cheapest beverage on the menu.
July 18th 2014. Warp speed. Did a double take when we noticed that our train was in fact driverless! After research, we discovered quite a few Parisian metro lines are. All they’ve got to work on now is air conditioning and the system would be perfect.
July 19th 2014. Roses are red. When pretty meets delicious. Made with love in Paris.
July 20th 2014. Godspeed. A mad dash home in the rain to save these precious bites of perfection from impending disaster. Now, which to devour first?
