Beautiful photos of Paris and Where to take them

Beautiful photos of Paris and Where to take them

Lifestyle, photography, Travel
A penchant for Paris? Look no further than this guide for all things Paris photography. Paris is without a doubt one of the most photogenic cities in the world. Every landmark or street corner has you taking your camera out for a shot, even if you are just walking from your hotel to a local supermarket, so it can be hard to prioritise what to take a photo of. We understand this and have decided to make everyone’s lives a little easier by showing you the most iconic photo opportunities in the City of Love.

Winter Breaks: VoL’s Getaway to the French Riviera

Get a sneak peek to the idyllic Côte d'Azur and find the antidote to winter blues France is already a popular destination for visitors. However, there is more to it than the Eiffel Tower.  Another place worth visiting is the French Riviera, with tourists coming all the way from the United States and Russia just for a taste of the French experience.  Nice Why to go:  Sun, beach, sun. beach (duuh).

What should be a memorable time of love, family, friends, grand gestures, gifts, devouring mince pies and singing Christmas carols, for others is a time of overdrinking and sleeping before 9 pm to avoid curling into piles of holiday despair. The harsh reality is that Christmas isn't always all it cracks up to be in the films. When you're in a different country to your loved ones, been dumped, broke or suffering from food poising, Christmas isn't so great. The Voice of London took to the internet to ask: "What's your worst Christmas holiday experience?"

What comes to your mind when you think of India? Taj Mahal, and the Himalayas; novels by renowned authors like Chetan Bhagat and home to world’s most beautiful and cultural resorts, perhaps. India, without a doubt, has a beautiful culture and heritage. Different states offer unique and diverse forms of culture like musical heritage, sculpturing, traditional beliefs, dances, food, languages, and festivals. The state of Rajasthan, for example, follows the principle ‘Attithi Devo bhavo’ which means treat your guests as you would treat God. Being ruled by many rulers in the past, each region in Rajasthan has its own folk culture. As a tourist, you will find a variety of food you need to try. The state itself is known for its spices and sweetness. One particular dish called ‘dalbati’
