Sunset of Cassis

Sunset of Cassis

I have just returned from a wonderful week down in the South of France in Cassis with my fantastic host-family. Many of you may already know that I spent a week there back in April. Having had an unforgettable time back in spring, I was looking forward to heading back down to enjoy the summer. Summer it definitely is, with the temperatures ranging between 30 degrees and higher, many a time I thought I would melt into the ground.

With the nights being long and the weather so perfect, I was able to watch many of the sunsets here in the South. Below are just a few photos of the sun setting here in Cassis. There’s something truly magical watching the sky change colours as the sun descends for another day.

The last two weeks on Instagram

The last two weeks on Instagram

It’s been a while since I’ve written one of my usual ‘This week on Instagram’ posts, and without further ado, here it is. The last two weeks have been incredibly busy – I’ve ended up doing so much. But the main idea that I think one could possibly take from the last couple of days is that I have been somewhat preoccupied with Spring – Paris in Spring. As previously mentioned in my blog (and of course in future posts), Spring here in Paris is beautiful. There is something magical and dream-like to be able to wander around the various streets, especially with no aim or goal in mind. The arrival of the flowers and green luscious leaves makes for much nicer photos, and I’ve recently been trying to experiment with different angles and ways to capture the environment around me. As you will be able to tell, I’m becoming a huge fan or the sun flare and trying to get that ethereal quality to my photographs. I just hope that my filter on my lens protects my camera enough!

The next two weeks have quite a lot in store for me, as it is official the school holidays here in France. Yay! Today I leave with the youngest children in my family, and head towards the south of France to the idyllic coastal town of Cassis. I am extremely excited (so much that it causes me to describe using alliteration!), and as my first time to the south of France (correct me if I’m wrong Mum), I’m really looking forward to seeing the sea and the area. As we’re quite close to Marseille, I hope that perhaps we’ll get a chance to travel and have a look around there. Following this, I then go back to England for a week to see my family. During my time back at home, we will be taking a special journey to a destination that I will be revealing nearer the time – oooo mysterious!

À bientôt!
