Changer d'air

© 2012 Annewil Stroo

Oh, how I love this city. And how I love this view. Paris and me, an everlasting love affair. Still, there's only a few weeks left for me here. After 4 years of living in the French capital, it's time for new adventures and new horizons. Destination: Amsterdam. Back to my home country, but discovering a new city as I've never lived in the Dutch capital before. I know the moment has come to move on, and in a way I'm quite excited about that, yet I mainly feel pretty sad that my Paris period will come to an end soon. Do you know that nostalgic feeling, brewing in the pit of your stomach? Well, that's me right now :)

Wishing you all a wonderful pre-Christmas weekend!

Oh wie schade. Ich würde Paris auch sehr vermissen. Aber ich bin gespannt auf dein neues zu Hause: Amsterdam. Sicher eine wunderbare Stadt!

Besides the nostagia, who always comes to the heart, this is something else, a great visual game between the tower and the branches of the window behind
a large photo
a hug

I love the nuance the photos has brought along.

I've scrolled down your traces of Paris; the many sun rises, fog, reflections, buildings, and people of Paris you've captured are simply lovable.

I think I know how you feel about leaving the town. I've grown a little to my current town I've been living for about one year till now as I'd leave for it for two weeks. There's always melancholy when it comes to leaving, isn't it?

I wish you a very happy holiday.
Warm regard from a new reader :)

dear Anne, Amsterdam is also a great city, the first time I was there when I was a teenager I told my parents I want to live there when I grow up. and it is just a short train ride away from Paris, you will visit often. This picture of Paris you just posted is so so cool. Hope to see you soon in the new year. Hugs and kisses. Ana
