Paris Photo Diary: Winter

Sunday, April 09, 2017

Back in December I made the move to Paris for 6 months as part of my university degree.

I'm so lucky to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world and although the first two months here had a lot of pretty awful, gloomy weather, it was still gorgeous.

Now that Spring is in full swing (24 degrees today - woohoo), here are some of the pictures that I've taken over the last 3 months...

... which are mostly classic tourist pictures including the Eiffel tower (sorry not sorry).
