Jubilee market – Covent garden

With the summer season upon us it is a great time to shop outdoors at the many markets that London has to offer.

Paris – exploring La Defense

I imagine Paris is a city similar to London in the sense that it has well known sights and attractions, particularly in the centre, but also has lesser known areas that are also filled with interesting things to see.
