For centuries we have been travelling the world through literature and poetry, exploring cultures and countries by reading words on a page and allowing them to manipulate our imagination. Now, with the help of our old pal Instagram, we are visually transported to almost any destination in the world from the comfort of, well, anywhere else in the world.
We want to inspire our readers to explore new destinations and revisit old loves, so we’re going to take you on a exploratory tour of the world’s most wondrous destinations, as seen through the Instagram accounts of those who have wandered their streets.
First up, the city of love, the city of lights; Paris.
“Paris is the greatest temple ever built to material joys and the lust of the eyes”
– Henry James
If you’d like to see more of the beautiful French capital, pick up Volume 6 of House of Coco, ‘The Freedom Issue’, here.
Join us every week as we explore a new city through it’s Instagram vista points. If you have travel photos that you’d like to feature in this city series then get in contact on Twitter @CaoilfhionnRose or tag your photographs with #cocotravels.
