Live Vicariously in Paris

By

20th May, 2013

What good is an iPhone if it can’t take you to Paris?! Or an iPad that can’t take  you on a stroll through Montmartre? I love having you vicariously tag along with me in Paris and I’m beginning to feel like you might really have a thing for this city. So I have a hunch you might like this brand new iPhone and iPad application I’ve come across. From the talented team behind the beautiful coffee table book Paris in Color, comes a new digital book combining fine art photography and minimalist video into visual stories of Paris neighborhoods. With every new volume, the Paris Journal will take you on a tour of a different neighbourhood in Paris, down hidden passages, through private gates and into boulangeries that look so good you can almost smell the buttery croissants.

The idea is to take a virtual walk through Paris whenever you want, at the touch of a button. The Paris Journal’s first volume, available to download now, will take you around the irresistible neighbourhood of Montmartre, the way a local would know their way around. While you save up for the real trip, this charming little app could be the perfect handheld substitute.

free preview version and the full version (for $3.99) are available to download now. Versions available for Kindle, Galaxy and Android will be available soon.
