Many years ago we went to Paris with our three young daughters. We arrived late at night in summer, and drove around the city oohing and aahing at all the bright lights.
Being Australians it was a dream come true for all of us. Neve had we imagined we would be one day driving around Paris!
Our youngest daughter was 4 years old and was particularly taken with the golden lights of the Eiffel Tower. She fell in love that night.
The next day we spent the day walking around the city seeing the sights. She refused to believe it was the same Eiffel Tower, the one she had seen the night before – in her words it wasn’t golden!
Many years later we were in Paris again, this time with my parents (both in heir 70s), sitting on a barge on the Seine, preparing for our 2 week barge and biking tour from Paris to Bruges! The group was getting to know each other and our guide suggested we take a walk along the river after dinner that night. We came across a group dancing on the river bank and we were transfixed – the night lights of Paris, the Tango, the music – the feeling of pure joy has stayed with me all these years later.
Ahh the memories of travel!
Given that Australia is an island and we can’t travel anywhere too far away from home at the moment, I decided to use this week’s #SundayStills as a reminder of some of the places I’ve been to in past travels, especially those featuring night shots.
Here in Tumbarumba it doesn’t get dark until close to 9pm at the moment. I just love summer nights!
And when the sun decides to go down it is quite spectacular!
Remember to go boldly into the night!
