Paris? In winter?
It may not be peak season, but the city of lights is as beautiful as ever.
There’s something about the clouds and rain that lends itself well to evoking, call it, a lovely melancholy. Or something like that. However you look at it, Paris is so undeniably charming and beautiful to behold. Spring, summer, fall. Or winter.
We’re here shooting 3 Days in Paris for an upcoming Stark Insider video segment. It follows on the heels of 3 Days in Sonoma. And, perhaps another destination is in the works too.
While I’ve been to Paris before, I’ve never quite seen it like this: rain soaked, dark, moody. I do appreciate that it’s less crowded this time of year (though still relatively crowded at the major tourist destinations). Once again, I’m walking everywhere. Yesterday, I walked about an hour from the Arc de Triomphe along the Seine river to the Musée du Louvre — there’s so much to see in any given direction that strolling the streets here feels like an adventure in itself. Later, I will head to my favorite museum, d’Orsay.
Meantime, here’s a few quick shots from yesterday in Paris.
Look for more soon on Stark Insider. All Things West Coast. And, every now and then, with a dash of international wanderlust for good measure. Au revoir for now!
