This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
How amazing to arrive in Paris! I couldn't wait to see this famously beautiful city. There are so many sights to see, but you can really see a lot just wandering along the Seine. There is so much beautiful architecture, and the blossom trees were in flower. There were also these little cotton tufts that would float off the trees and catch in the breeze. Tres jolie!
It's easy to get an idealistic sense of what life for Parisians is like, but even beautiful Paris isn't perfect. When I was there, I wandered past stores that had just been vandalised (smashed windows and graffiti) in the weekly protests by the yellow jackets (gilets jaunes), who were protesting the high cost of living for workers.
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it!
