When in Paris.

Paris Diaries 02.

A somewhat belated follow on post after my last entry (which you can read here) about my time spent in Paris. It is over a month since I have been back and yes, I have mostly lost the feeling and mindset you have when everything is new, when time slows down, and when you take things at a slightly slower pace. However, I think there may be some things that have been instilled within me that maybe I don’t even realise yet, and perhaps it has changed my attitude to some aspects of my daily life, in a positive way. One thing that has been cemented is my daily yoga practice, thanks to Yoga with Adriene.  I started doing it every day before I went to Paris, and then had the time and space to start each day that way, followed by a couple of espressos…! Adriene is seriously amazing, and using her videos has made it much easier to stick to doing it every day as she has such a variety of videos, with quicker ones if you don’t have much time, slower ones, and also for any mood etc.

Anyway, this blog post isn’t supposed to be about yoga (!), and is more about photos than words. I took A LOT of photos with my camera, but here are just a few from my phone. And also a few photos of sketches I did whilst at the Rodin exhibition at the Grand Palais and also at the Rodin museum. I really LOVE drawing from sculptures and would like to have stood there much longer to get some more detailed drawings.

Thanks again for reading and following my blog!!
