  • Merry Christmas: A Photographic and Musical Journey

Last Updated: 18 November 2023

Every year I think of a way to thank my readers and wish them a Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas!

After creating ebooks in previous years, I have chosen to do something different for Christmas 2022.

I had the idea of producing a musical and photographic journey from Paris to the Eastern regions of France.

I have selected my best photos to create a 35-minute video that immerses you in the Christmas atmosphere.

Featured: Paris, Alsace, Lorraine, Montbéliard, and the French Alps.

I hope you enjoy my (amateur) video and that it brings you moments of peace and happiness.

I wish you a merry Christmas, and I look forward to writing to you after Christmas!

Joyeux Noël! Merry Christmas!
