vintage lantern paris france

More goodness from Paris

Photographers as we are, we made a truckload of photos in Paris. So many that we have to spread them in a few posts. Tell us if you’re getting a Paris overdose! 😉

Previously we featured the Eiffel tower. Today we’re sharing some city details with you. The weather wasn’t the greatest (hence the first photo), but that didn’t stop us from exploring the city and feasting our eyes on all the little details, such as the gorgeous lanterns.

Last, but not least, I’d like to tell you that Paris is not all dafodils and unicorns. The centre has fabulous architecture, so much culture and great food, but like many big cities it will make you or brake you. In the huge suburbs, thousands of people are strugling to survive every single day. The unemployment rates are going through the roof and so is the cost of living. Many young people feel as if they don’t have a future. It’s a harsh side we don’t often think about, but when we do we feel lucky with all the chances we’ve been given.
