Monday Travel Memory: Paris

Notre Dame, Paris

It might be cliché, but I truly believe there is no place like Paris. It remains one of my favorite cities in the world. No matter what season, it still captivates. In the few times I have visited, I loved finding new angles of famous structures (like this one of a wintery Notre Dame) and exploring some of the lesser known areas to escape from tourist routes. Exactly one year ago, we were there with my parents. One of my favorite memories was tucking into a tiny, candle-lit bistro in the chic Levallois-Perret neighborhood for a beautiful and classic French meal. We were lucky enough to be celebrating my mom’s birthday there.

I will always treasure those great memories. And while it can’t be Paris every year, I’m still wishing my mom a very happy birthday today.

Monday Travel Memory: Kiev

Kiev, UkraineHard to believe it has been over seven months since we were in Ukraine. I still love this night shot showcasing the decayed glamour on Kreshchatyk.

And now, here I am in Portland. Heading to Oakland/San Francisco tomorrow to escape the rain and I see that I’m bringing the rain with me (hopefully just for one day).

Figures.
