I arrived in Paris on Saturday night, an beyond walking down to the Seine to see the Eiffel Tower and people-watch, we didn’t do much.
So Sunday was my first real day in Paris, and we packed a lot in.
First off, when I’m at home in Vancouver, my favorite thing to do on a Sunday is to go the Farmer’s Market. So, we went to the Farmer’s Market in Paris! We had planned to go to the Bastille one, but ended up going to our local one instead, and it was amazing.
We then explored the city by bike, riding up to the Canal St Martin and chilling out with the locals at the park.
We finished the day by riding our bikes back down to the Seine, and picking up a bottle of rose on the way. Wine, sunset, music… it was perfect.
I spent four days in Brighton with my friend Jeremy Corner, whom I met at Sage Summit a couple years back in New Orleans, and then again last year in Chicago.
He kindly let me crash at his place in Brighton, which is a beautiful seaside town about an hour out of London.
This year, Jeremy has been working on YouTube series called The Greeting Card Project. Each week, he chooses cards (like, old fashioned greeting cards), and mails them to family and friends.
I’ve been the recipient of his cards a couple of times now, and it’s really delightful. I basically never get mail that is not bills or junk, so it’s such a wonderful experience to get something in the mail like that.
I thought, seeing as I was with him, that I’d take inspiration from him, and we’d go do shoot a video like his, but with me purchasing and sending postcards to my friends.
