More street photos of Le Suquet!
I absolutely loved this part of town: the run down buildings, small paths, quiet environment, people stepping out of their tiny balconies to hang the clothes to dry. For a moment you can get lost in the hills of these streets and forget the fact that you’re in a town as glamorous as Cannes. 🏘✨
Fresh flowers from the Marché Forville- an indoor market selling all kinds of produce and flowers. 🌺💐 This was unlike any market place I had seen and found in a great location right in Le Suque. We stumbled upon it while walking around and I don’t think our professor expected us to be as fascinated by it as we actually were🤣, but we were like “wow, we feel like locals😄”.
Today is the first day of the Cannes Film Festival so I thought it would be appropriate to post some photos from my trip to Cannes back in 2015 to showcase the beauty that this place has to offer! 😍 I’m so excited to share these pictures because aside from like 3 that I publicly shared when I was abroad, no one has seen most of them! It’s an absolutely beautiful place and I feel so lucky to have experienced it, so I hope y’all cannes enjoy the views. (See what I did there? ☺️) ••These are the streets of Le Suquet, which is the “old town” part of Cannes. The cobblestoned narrow streets lead you to quaint little homes like these, restaurants, and great views of La Croisette.
Multnomah Whiskey Library: A whiskey lovers dream. 🥃
I highly recommend this place if you’re in the Portland area. It’s a little hole in the wall kind of place, if you’re walking too fast along the street you might miss it😉. But it is seriously like a library in there, and it might even be mistaken for one if it weren’t for the whiskey stacked walls🤣. There was a bit of a wait but you can enjoy whiskey in the bar downstairs while you wait, and once you’re in there you’re free to choose over the hundreds of whiskeys they have to offer.
Every picture has a story, so let me tell you this one:
Went to visit Multnomah Falls with a friend on our last day in Portland! We decided to Uber there on a very windy day and to our surprise the waterfall was closed as soon as we got there. Some people there said it was due to the crazy winds, and others said it was because of the recent fires. Whatever the reason, this was the closest I could get to taking a picture (which explains why its completely empty and looks so magical). We stayed there for as long as we could before our bodies started to feel numb from the cold (about an hour). But what we didn’t expect was to wait around 40 more minutes for an Uber to pick us up. By the time the Uber came he explained how he was hesitant to go all the way to the falls, but he figured if he didn’t go no one else would 😅 and he was probably right because the wind was so intense that it was rocking the cars side to side and the river was a bit wild. I think as grateful as we were to have seen the waterfall, we were even more grateful to be going home safely in the warmth of a stranger’s car. 🌲🍃⛰
