London vs Paris

 
 
 
 
 
All images from london vs paris

Found this lovely photographic blog by two mums. One living in London, the other in Paris. Every Monday and Friday, they post pictures from London and Paris based on a decided theme which ranges from train tickets, trees to red doors. Great shots of simple things found in their daily lives. A fun way to compare the subtle differences of the two cities, while enlightening us on the little charms they each hold.

I have to say I like both cities. It's hard to pick one over the other. They have different yet appealing areas that I adore and dislike. What I don't like? Weather for London and dog poo for Paris.

Which city do you prefer?

Temp in Sydney reached a top of 42degrees today. I hope everyone in Sydney find ways to stay cool. Weather stations have predicted temp to stay around 32 at midnight. It's going to be a long night.

This is a beautiful post, Jo. A lovely comparison of two great cities. I still dream of visiting London one day. The photo booth somehow reminds me of the film Amelie. I'm now back in Dubai.

Paris! I'm convinced it's my motherland - if I could only speak French...

What an awesome idea! I've never been to either city but both are on my list of places to visit. Both have such a romantic appeal!

We've been hearing about the record-breaking heat in Australia over here! The London vs. Paris blog sounds like my kind of blog, although I have to say I WILDLY prefer London. I gave Paris two shots -- once in the winter and once in the spring (because so many nice things are said about Paris in the spring), probably spending about 10-15 days there in total, but I just didn't find myself loving it, or even liking it very much. I think it just reminds me too much of New York, but its metro system slightly more difficult to navigate, and its people snobbier (much of it was probably due to the language barrier, although I did attempt to use my 5 years of high school French and was pretty much immediately shot down every time). I did meet two waiters who were extremely hospitable, though, so I have that to hold onto. I will give it another shot eventually, but it probably won't be for a long time, after I've hit up many of the other places I've been wanting to go.
