That pretty much sums the city up from my perspective. I saw a LOT in a week (sights-wise), but also got to hang out with some wonderful friends, saw a few Vancouver/Canadian bands, and checked out a TON of museums.

There’s no way I can sum up Paris with one post and three photos but I took hundreds and I have to post something, right?
I had a VERY short time in Paris, about 48 hours before I went to London, and after that, only 24 hours before my flight back to Canada but I jammed in as much as I could.
I saw most of the main sights on my first full day, walking as far as my bum knee would take me (I was hit by a car in October, but that’s another story).
The city is beautiful and the weather was great for walking, despite the fact that it was December!
Traveling in winter is odd because you only have so much daylight available to you. Word to the wise, ending your day as the sun sets in a GIANT cemetery (Père Lachaise) is slightly eerie, especially when you get turned around.
I think my favourite spot was the Pont Alexandre III (the bridge above). It was gorgeous and had so many intricate things to photograph on it; not to mention the beautiful gold statues standing out in the winter sun.
I will do another post about my favourite accidental discover in Paris, and maybe one on the pastry situation as well. Come back soon!
JUST got back from another fun trip to Tofino and Ucluelet.
One of my stops was for dinner at the Wolf In The Fog, which was still under construction last time. I had an incredible meal, and some tasty drinks - more photos from which you can see on the blog post on VancouverIsAwesome.com - click here.
I’ll post a few more images from the trip in the next few days.
Finally putting the rest of my photos from my trip to the Villa at Hester Creek up on Vancouver is Awesome. (Click the link to see the post.)
I’ve fallen behind (as I usually do in summer) on the blogging, but as I catch up on work I’ll try and post some more shots of my adventures.
