Back from Paris

Just got back from Paris on Monday after a birthday weekend away with my girlfriend. The city is gorgeous, definitely once of those ‘places you have to see’ in your lifetime. It just has such a strong cultural feeling and feels full of life, if sometimes a little too much! We went to see the Eiffel Tower at night and it is class! The tower’s lights twinkle on the hour as well – looks brilliant!

One thing I noticed when in Paris was not only that they still had Virgin Megastores (not the troubled Zaavi chain), but also that the Virgin stores have such a large stock of Graphic Design materials. They stocked loads of books on all things design, a room dedicated to different types of paper, hundreds of varieties of pens, paints, brushes and even finished art for sale. We spent over an hour in the shop, although only ended up buying a set of 5 markers. I wish they still had Virgin Megastores in UK & Ireland…
