Paris, The City of Light (New Time Lapse Video)

Snow in Paris!

Well, at least last night, though all evidence is already gone.

paris (im)perfect?

Sion Dayson is paris (im)perfect. Writer, dreamer, I moved to France on – no exaggerating – a romantic whim. As you can imagine, a lot can go wrong (and very right!) with such a (non)plan. These are the (im)perfect stories that result.

Share the love!
