A stroll along the Seine, Paris

Share

I’m back in Istanbul, but still posting the last photos from my trip in Paris during the middle of July. Yes, I took about 1,000 photos. No, you won’t have to see them all. I think this will have to be the last of them.

One afternoon, Shelley and I took a stroll along the Seine on our way to a museum. Just a few photos I took on the way.

This is the base of the Alexander III Bridge. Those "railroad ties" are seats, which you find all over this section of the Seine. They are made of recycled plastic.

These pods were presented as portable "hotel" rooms. Inside was a round couch with pillows. You'd have to sleep in a curve, but I guess. It's larger than the capsule hotel I stayed in in Saigon.

This is a floating greenhouse filled with plants. I had expected vegetables, but these were flowering.

This floating greenhouse was lovely. There were lots of signs, but not in English, so I don't know exactly what they were trying to teach. Waht surprised me what that it was completely open and accessible--there was no caretaker or security.

I'm a professional vagabond. I quit my cubical job in January 2014. Since then, I've hiked the Appalachian Trail, The Camino, and taught English in Vietnam, Turkey, Russia, Spain, Mexico and Peru. I'm exploring the world and you can come too!
