Spring and Summer here in Paris is beyond beautiful. Not only does the sun finally come out, but so do all the delightful flowers. This spring, I headed over to the Champ de Mars, and spent a wonderful morning wandering around taking photos of the many beautiful flowers and blossom trees.
Paris has opened it’s arms to the Roland Garros, and those visiting the area around the Eiffel Tower will be welcomed by a giant descending ball and live coverage of the tennis on the Champs de Mars. For those who know me, will know how much my family and I love tennis, both playing and watching; and I am so excited for this year’s French Open! Not only to be able to while away the time watching the tennis by the Eiffel Tower like I did this weekend, but also because I will be attending the French Open this year!! My family will be coming over tomorrow, and we will spend the whole day there on Thursday – so keep checking out my instagram, as I can imagine I will be uploading quite a few photos! Who do you think is going to win this year? Could Nadal become the first man in tennis history to win the same Grand Slam title 10 times?! (I hope so!)
Today celebrates the birthday of the Eiffel Tower, as it was 126 years ago when her gates were opened (or steps rather) to the public. To celebrate this momentous date, here are just a few of my favourite photographs taken by myself of the Tour Eiffel.
