Auvers sur Oise On the steps of Van Gogh

So every once in awhile you just have to leave Paris and explore its surroundings. Too much beauty oozes from all the lovely buildings, uniquely symmetrical streets and incredibly meticulous urban planning. Given all that it is only nature that you ask yourself the crucial question – am I becoming too blazé ? Am I getting used to all this ? Am I not noticing the loveliness of it all as much as I used to ? The answer to all those questions is (off course) a resounding YES so it is necessary to here and there move away, step aside and escape to the countryside.




Regenerate yourself in nature (as is the traditional, ancient recipe), rejuvenate and come back with the new appreciation for the city living. Now being spoiled and urbanized beyond our senses we’re off course not nearly rugged enough to go to the actual nature, wrestle alligators (or crocodiles, whatever) Tarzan style, so we do what we can and what is in our reach and comfort zone – take a 45 minutes train to a quaint little village just outside Paris.


Ah the cuteness


The problem off course is that these quaint little villages are even prettier than the city of Paris, so our fear of loveliness overload was not settled. For the moment it seems that it’s our destiny to be asking all these (and more) questions in a city so many people find the most beautiful there is. So in order to break up the monotony caused by all the Eiffel tower photos, take a peek at these ; Van Gogh was inspired, so might you be.


Ah the impossible cuteness


Bet this looks familiar



Quite literally on the steps of Van Gogh



Quite literally on the steps of Van Gogh take two – see that clever little pun we did there ? We’re so smart and funny



Smart and funny, funny and smart ; spearheading these traits is our lovely guide, photojournalist, explorer and art connoisseur extraordinaire, Lilly, appearing from the bushes
