Travel Planning


As my departure is coming closer each week, I am dreaming of picturesque places to visit during August.

Flicking through the pages of my Lonely Planet travel guide for France, I am falling in love with so many places I didn’t even know exist.
Despite the fact I am going to be on a tight budget until I start work in the fall, I am determined to visit a few of these magical towns I have discovered.

#1 on my list being COLMAR

To me this town looks breath-taking. It may be a small town, but the architecture of the buildings is grasping my attention and making me want to go and photograph this marvellous place.

An ancient castle on an island in North-Western France, who wouldn’t want to visit this?

This castle looks like something of a fairytale. It is the largest Chateau in the Loire Valley and was built in the 16th Century.

Here you can visit Monet’s Garden, where he painted his famous painting of “Water lilies and the Japanese Bridge”.

Another charming town that has caught my eye and only a 2 and a half hour train ride from Paris.
