Jardin de Luxembourg in the fall

It has been almost a year since I last went to Paris. A whole year. These last 365 days have gone by faster than any time in my life and it doesn’t feel like time is slowing down. I never got around to post about all about our trip to Paris. Things happened shortly after and I disappeared from my blog for a while. I’m still not fully back into my old blogging routine, but now that fall is here again it feels right to share the photos I have been wanting to share since last October.

It was unexpectedly warm when we were in France. It’s not often that you get 30Β°C on an October 18th in Europe. We had just visited Le Bon Marche when I discovered that the Jardin de Luxembourg wasn’t far off. On our way over we stopped at a bakery to pick up lunch. I remember that we got lost a little afterwards. When we finally got there the park was jam-packed with people. K found himself a set of those famous green metal chairs and DIYed a sunbed, while I went out exploring the park. As you know, I can truly enjoy myself walking around gardens and parks, getting all snappy happy with my camera. There were palm trees and flowers, but also golden yellow chestnut trees and thousands of fallen leaves. The contrast between the castle gardens and the surrounding park couldn’t be bigger. The park itself was immensely beautiful. Children were playing with boats in the fountains in front of the castle, people were napping on benches and there was a bridal shoot going in a corner. Just thinking back to my afternoon in Jadin de Luxembourg makes me wish we could go back to Paris. Alas, K has taken up all his leave for this year and I am spending my days looking for a job and finishing up my thesis. Not quiet as fancy. Luckily, I have pictures to dream away by. Enjoy!
