Photo Thursday: Contrasting Travel Ideals on Display in Paris

Everyone has their own idea of what makes for a perfect vacation, but seldom are the options displayed in such stark contrast.

Contrasting Travel Ideals on Display in Paris

This was the scene near our hotel in Paris last October.

I was struck by the contrast between the Eifel Tower and the rugged outdoors scene plastered along the tower in the foreground. (The poster was an ad for travel to Australia.) It was an unexpected juxtaposition of two very different visions of travel, perhaps made more obvious here, in a city that is the focus of many a traveler’s dreams.

    1. I just thought it was funny – so many people dream of seeing the Eifel Tower,but obviously there is a market here for a very different kind of travel as well.

Your turn!
