Luxury travel tip: catch fleeting moments as memories

Still-life at Hôtel Plaza-Athénée Paris

Still-life at Hôtel Plaza-Athénée Paris

It can actually get quite boring travelling, especially when you are by yourself. And the more travelling you do, says the gal, the more difficult it is to distinguish one happening from another.

Do as a good friend of mine does, compile ‘photo sets’ and take images, to remind you of a time, of a moment.  This still life was taken from a suite at the Hôtel Plaza-Athénée, Paris.  I happen to remember the hotel also for its Dior Institut, and the sensational Patrick Jouin-designed Restaurant Alain Ducasse, with what look like giant, floor-standing halves of silver cloches, each actually holding banquette seating.

One little still-life therefore triggers a whole host of memories, differentiation of the one from the norm.
