Well I survived the grueling 27 hours of travel time to get from Melbourne to Paris. Navigated the labyrinth that is Paris airport and here I am. In my hostel after a 6 hour stint of exploring Montmartre. Dog tired but happy to finally have a place to rest my legs and meet some people. Who knows what the evening will bring, my guess lots of sleep.
I’ll give you more detail on my journey and explorations soon, For today I just want to share some of the pictures I took while wandering around Montmartre, enjoy!!
Hooray! Love those pictures, especially the portrait drawing one. Glad you are having fun!

Thanks Stephanie. I’ve had so much fun, I just need to pace myself better.
Really loving photo #4 (can picture myself walking along that sidewalk) and the one of the portrait drawing as well.
.-= Heather´s last blog ..Planning to Leap =-.
Thanks Heather. There were so many artists doing portraits there. If I wasn’t travelling with a backpack I could have almost had one done.
Love your photos! Now we want to know what delicious food you’ve been eating… something better than Vegemite, I’m sure.

Hey Adam. I don’t think there is any food that is more delicious than Vegemite.
Nice pictures Chris!! Are you in love with the city yet? I’m sure you will take many more by the end of your trip. You will have shutterbug finger in no time! 😉

Thanks Cailin. I loved Paris, really didn’t have a bad experience for the short time I was there. Wish I had perhaps stayed an extra day just as a rest day. I was go go go the whole time.
Awesome! I’m very jealous. Really loving the black & white.

Nothing like a jam-packed first day abroad! I’ll be curious to read about your initial impressions…
And definitely keep up the black-and-white photography, those are some good-looking photos.

Thanks. I’ve had lots of fun exploring Paris.
When I visited Paris my hotel was in Montmartre. I LOVED that area! Fantastic pics (the black and white look familiar, wink wink). I’m sooo excited for you and your upcoming adventures. Please tell me you had some crepes already? 🙂
.-= Andi´s last blog ..imgp2629 =-.
Hey Andi. Montmartre is beautiful. Little streets and the view from Sacre Cour is amazing. Alas I didn’t get myself any crepes. I was so full up on pastries and baguettes. Will have to return to get me one.
Cool Photos! I love the black & whites. Stumbled and tweeted 🙂
.-= bethany´s last blog ..Vintage Vegas =-.
Thanks Bethany, I love black and white photos so have been taking a few on the trip.
Wow – your photos are amazing. I especially love the shot of the Eiffel Tower in the distance, and the leafy suburb. The black and white shots look great too – makes Paris look quite…historic, somehow. (It’s hard to explain).
Pretty beneficial post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have quite enjoyed reading your blog posts. Any way I’ll be subscribing for ones feed and I hope you article again soon. I will revisit your site likely soon. Regards,
