Float down the Seine River

Picture a beautiful summer night right before sunset. The colors of the sky are vibrant with orange and yellows contrasting against the once cloud-speckled blue sky of the day. Watching the Eiffel Tower pass on your left and the Jardins du Trocadéro on your right, you sip on a bit of champagne and smile at the almost surreal feeling you get from thinking…this is your life. The river cruises down the Seine River, which cuts straight through the city of Paris, is the  perfect way to wind down a day before a late night dinner. The romance among the couples and the smiles shared with close friends and family creates a soothing vibe for what I am sure was a day full of hustle and bustle walking to and from the infinite number of sights in Paris. Just mind your dress, ladies. A swift gust of wind might reveal a little bit more than you are willing, giving a show to the rest of the passengers (yes, that happened). It kind of broke that whole surrealness I mentioned earlier. Nevertheless, it was an unforgettable moment.

  2. Awesome shots–I like how going from the water gives you a different view of cities

    • I think it is one of the best ways to view the city. It lets you escape from the busy aspects for a while. Plus the different angles and viewpoints are great! Even the bridges are fun to photograph
