Paris won't ever not be Paris, but even the City of Lights needs a chance to rest a while. Andrew Julian recently visited France in the winter and was pleasantly surprised to find that the energy was quite different from the bustling city of the summer. Julian filmed his visit in timelapse so you too can experience Paris when it's quiet.
Blackouts are great but they never happen when you want them to. Admit it, you look forward to the beer sipping and card playing under gentle candlelight. The good news is that you don't have to wait for the next power outage to enjoy bringing light home. The designers at Radius present their city skyline candle-holders. They are beautifully designed to display your favorite European city (or New York) as little lights glow from behind.
