Paris – a quick trip

Standard

For the first time I went to Paris via the Eurostar – train.

What a wonderful way to travel.

It was easy, quick and very calm.

I loved it. Perfect for a quick break.

It went so impressively fast, we were in Paris from London in 2 and a quarter hours.

Once there,

We took it slowly and having been in Paris before

we just enjoyed the atmosphere and

some of the landmarks of Paris.

My favourite picture at the Tour Eiffel with Autumn colours:

Some more impressions

I will certainly explore more cities with the Eurostar, such a great and easy way to travel.

Have a great week!

 

Today is …. #45

Standard

… a day for a dream journey…

I sit down comfortably,

close my eyes and

go on a journey in my mind.

Go anywhere you like,

somewhere where you have been

or somewhere you like to go, imagine how it could be.

Let your imagination go.

Enjoy the sights, smells, colours and sounds.

When you open your eyes,

you feel happy and relaxed.

 

 

Passion Fruit Hedgerow

Standard

Passion fruit or Maracuya is such a beautiful plant.

I do have 2 pots at home and I received blooms too.

On my travels I found a station on the Underground,

well this station is overground further East

where a whole fence is covered by a Passion fruit hedge.

Blooming and having fruit at the same time.

I made a collage of my pictures.

 

 

I keep admiring it, it is amazing

that it grows as a hedge so well in London

as it is native from South America.

I do know it grows well in Cornwall too,

as my friend blogger here shows.
