PHOTO DIARY OF PARIS
Paris is my most adored international city, so much so I have travelled the distance from Australia three times already and am always pondering when I’ll next return. The weather has never deterred my love of this opulent city, with a cool and overcast climate in spring during the first trip to a sizzling and sunny summer on my last. The city of love is rich in art and museums, architectural landmarks, fashion, gastronomy and remarkable gardens. The moment after you arrive, you are allured by the French language and the sophisticated Parisian fashion. Whether you stroll around the city or utilise the Métro, there are so many French delights to explore and immerse yourself in.
