The Yellow Tree ~ France

Living in Thailand is amazing. We’ve got a great lifestyle and are very happy with it. But although we have a few seasons like the rainy season, or the smoky season, I sometimes miss the cold and the colors of fall and winter. I explained a few weeks ago how [...]

La Seine ~ Paris

Paname, Paname.. Paris is a city I love. I usually can’t stand huge cities, with all their chaotic traffic, fast-paced life and lack of human warmth. I prefer smaller towns, where people actually smile at each other and where faces become familiar after a while. I prefer to walk everywhere [...]

Notre-Dame Cathedral ~ France

La Flute ~ Paris

~~oOo~~ This shot was taken during a cold overcast winter day, in one of my favorite gardens in Paris: The ‘Jardin de Luxembourg’. I’ll add a poem I found on the internet that in my opinion completes the image. To him no vain regrets belong Whose soul, that finer instrument, [...]
