We interrupt this week’s normal agenda with the winning entries in our world’s most inspirational place contest. Today’s entry is by Rebecca, who will win a subscription to Indie Travel Podcast magazine courtesy of our sponsors. Congrats Rebecca!
This past Summer my husband and I spent the month of July in Paris so that he could take a course for his PhD. It was such an amazing time for us. One night we took our picnic lunch down to the Seine and witnessed the most amazing sunset – sunlight glinting off the sides of the tourist boats passing by, illuminating Notre Dame, giving the entire scene a glorious rose tint.
Our feet hanging over the endge of the embankment, a glass of wine (shhhh, don’t tell) in hand, and music from a motley group of musicians wafting through the air. It was a moment of peace in the midst of chaos, beauty in the midst of an often ugly world, and a moment where everyone there was united in their human recognition of the sublime. I know that sounds a bit over the top but it was a moment that will stay with me for many years.
Special thanks again to our contest sponsors, Indie Travel Podcast and Odyssey Publications:
