Things I saw in Paris | France

Église Saint Germain des Prés
My two favourite things in Paris were:
1. The Coulée Verte/Promenade Plantée – an elevated walkway built on top of an old railway line that runs above the city from Bastille to the Bois de Vincennes. A garden in the sky, if you will.
2. Sparkling water fountains! Ice cold sparkling water! For free! Welcome to the future.

Winding lanes | Perros – Guirec, France


Perros - Guirec

I’m on a bus winding around these lanes. Past every corner I keep seeing my dream house: slate roof, colourful shutters, palm trees and a glimpse of craggy coast and blue sea behind.
This bus is free. It runs every Tuesday and Friday morning. Everyone who gets on the bus says hello to everyone else and when they leave they say goodbye in the same way. My french is really coming along. “Bonjour!!!” I say. I don’t understand all of the conversations but I’m smiling and nodding a lot.
