Dans chaque vie un peu de pluie doit tomber

Paris, France                                Continuez à appuyer sur l'avant!

I was walking across  Pont Louis Philippe when I saw a man with the biggest umbrella that I'd ever seen. He probably could have used it as boat and floated down the Seine. :-)

Liebster Award

London, England

The other day I was honored to receive The Liebster Award from Malyss.  She is a blogger and a world famous connoisseur of benches, so I added a bench that she might have seen during her travels. ;-)

"Liebster" is a german word that means "sweetest", "kindest","nicest" , dearest", "beloved"," pleasant" and "valued".
It's given to bloggers with less than 200 followers to recognize their blog and to encourage them to go on blogging .

The Award came with some questions and some rules which I'm going to break, however I will answer the questions. 
Malyss asked:

Your favorite color 

Your favorite book 
-The Bible
A dream to realise
To live in France for a year or more
Your secret passion
My answers to these questions reveal my passions but they aren't secret

The thing you'd like to do but never will
Ten years traveling around Europe
The job you would have liked to do
Rick Steve's traveling photographer :-)
Your favorite word
The movie that makes you cry
Only two movies have made me cry, The Red Balloon (when I was 7 yrs old) and  Schindler's List.
Salt or sugar ?
Both! Usually salty first then sweet
Have you a lucky charm?

A motto you like 
 "I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me"

Thanks Malyss!

Le Petit Héros Sur Son Autruche

Paris, France  (Jardin des Tuileries)

The little hero proudly rides home on his ostrich after imaginary battles in far away places.  Sometimes I miss being a kid but at least I still have a pretty good imagination. :-)
