Paris Bound!

I'd love to say that I'll be blogging from Paris next week ... but I'm pretty certain I won't. I WILL be dusting off the passport and jetting over to explore the City of Light on my first-ever visit, but I'm quite sure I'll be preoccupied soaking up the ambiance of the French way of life. And on my return – I'll hopefully have some wonderful photos to share.

While I'm savoring café au lait and croissants in an outdoor café on the left bank and reveling in Paris in the spring, here is a charming little movie for you to enjoy. Luke Shepard, a student at The American University of Paris, created this time-lapse video based on over 2,000 images, inspired by his love of walking the streets of la ville lumière at night. The name of the movie was no doubt derived from Baudelaire's interpretation of le flaneur as a person who walks the city in order to experience it.

A bientôt!
