What’s your favourite way to relax and unwind after a long workday?
I love going on long walks. Not only do I get a little exercise boost, but walks give me the perfect chance to soak up my surroundings. When I’m at home in London, I often find myself following the paths of Hyde Park or winding my way through the colourful streets of Notting Hill. When I’m travelling, one of my favourite things to do is just take off on foot – often without much of a set agenda. I pick up the vibe of a city by wandering.
I was recently in Paris for a few days and found myself meandering through Pere Lachaise cemetery, which is the largest cemetery in the city and home to some of the greats in art, literature and music, such as Edith Piaf, Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison, Honore de Balzac and Max Ernst.
I love cemeteries, and of course they seem especially appropriate in the lead up to Halloween. The Pere Lachaise cemetery is particularly beautiful and for a pattern lover like me, the iron gates and doors of the tombs are incredibly inspiring. Here are some photos I took on my recent visit there. I hope you enjoy them!
