I participated in an exchange program in France over the summer for 5 weeks and of course one can’t get out of something like that without a few great pictures.
Taken from the top of the tower of Chartres Cathedral.
The city of Chartres from the tower.
Yup. That’s Chartres.
A random country road in the village my correspondent’s grandmother lived in near Chartres. Her house was a beautiful late 18th century affair.
Ceramic flowers on a grave in Père Lachaise.
The wreath again.
Flowers in Monet’s garden in Giverny.
More flowers from Monet’s garden. My friend spent ages photographing the flowers; I wish I had a couple of his to show off.
Mont St. Michel.
Again Mont St. Michel. The stonework was beautiful. I read this book in fourth grade, The Mystery of Mont St. Michel, written in the 50’s and I fell in love with the place. Finally going there was amazing.
A crossroads in the Loire Valley.
Sacre Coeur. Though I really am not a fan of this building, nor the reason it was built, I still really like this picture.
Chateaux of the Loire. . . Here is the rooftop of Chambord. The tower of the wonderful double spiral staircase.
Rather a contrast from the picture of Chambord. Well, here’s Fougères. A chateau as well, but a random back part I don’t think tourists are supposed to ever see. But I like it.
