Where in the world: France
Through the lens in Paris.
It was a lazy end of July day in the historic 4th arrondissement of Paris where so many stories and memories are made. A 24-hour layover was more than ample time to experience the true essence of the city – to enjoy a walk along the banks of the Seine River, bordered by Belle Époque buildings, and admire the weathered hues of their intricate façades. What a delightful surprise to find such serenity in this bustling city. There are oases of calm everywhere if you just look.
