Bordeaux, France, taken on December 23, 2012

There was one specific occasion engraved in my mind where I felt genuinely and completely happy. It was an evening in December 2012 at the Bordeaux Christmas market, with a friend alongside me strolling through the colourful booths in the light rain. For some reason the company and the atmosphere made me feel so content, so joyful, and from that day onward, that exact spot where the Christmas markets are held every year has become my happy place, somewhere only I know.

Florence, Italy, taken on December 19, 2013

Here is a stunning night scene of the Santa Maria del Flore during Christmas in Florence, Italy. Because of a 2-hour train delay, I didn’t spend as much time as I would have liked in Florence, making it one of the cities to go back to eventually.

Pornic, France, taken on December 29, 2012

All along I KNEW that Santa Claus was a thief! Identity revealed…in an unexpected side trip to Pornic during the Christmas season 😛 How much more proof do we need – arrest this criminal! (And this was how I ruined children’s dreams 😦 )

Jan 28, 2015 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Champs-Élysées

Paris, France, taken on December 28, 2010

I had never been a big fan of the Champs-Élysées nor of Paris, but this photo of the Champs-Élysées, taken at night on top of the Arc de Triomphe during my first ever trip to Paris, became one of my all-time favourite travel photos. The Ferris wheel at the other end – Place de la Concorde – isn’t always there, and I was lucky that it was there during the Christmas season. And the lanes of traffic on the self-proclaimed most beautiful avenue in the world – with the sidewalks lit in blue, the entire scene looks like a national flag stretched out from top to bottom (though interestingly, out of all the tri-coloured European flags, none of them are in the order of white, red, and blue, either horizontal or vertical.)

[Travel time] Having heard that Lafayette in Paris installed its Christmas tree upside down this year, I decided to go take a look with my friend Mengmeng. It was my first time having a coffee with such a dazzling view in front of me, and I quite enjoyed sitting on the 3rd floor watching busy shoppers on the level below. The best part, of course, was the time spent with my friend. We don’t get to see each other much anymore, so every opportunity to meet was dearly cherished 🙂
