'Paris is always great place to visit any time of year, but it is especially beautiful in early spring when everything is in bloom and the summer crowds have yet to arrive. It is of course a city of amazing museums, incredible architecture and delicious restaurants, but my favourite thing to do in #Paris is to just walking through the neighbourhoods and soak up the culture. I #travel all over the world, but I always find myself returning to Paris.' And that's all for this #lpInstaTakeover from #lpPathfinders member @LifePartII. Keep up with Jon's adventures by following his feed.

'To truly appreciate the medieval fortress of Cité de Carcassonne in southern #France , you have to picture it from above. While exploring behind the walls of this #UNESCO World Heritage site, you get a good feel for what life was like in this medieval fiefdom. In the evenings tables are brought to cobblestoned streets where Carcassonne’s most famous dish, the hearty cassoulet, is served.' - @LifePartII, #lpInstaTakeover #travel

'To me, no trip to #France is complete without spending some time exploring the small town markets. It isn’t just the sights, but the sounds of musicians, the aroma of fresh baked bread and the general feel of goodness that comes from remembering how special it is to take life slowly and with care.' - @lifepartII, #lpInstaTakeover #travel

'Le Mont-Saint-Michel is a tiny island off the coast of #Normandy , #France . It is made famous by the 8th Century monastery that dominates the landscape. The construction of this well preserved town, only recently made accessible during high tides, well demonstrates life during the feudal time during which it is constructed.' - @lifepartII, #lpInstaTakeover #travel

This weekend's #lpInstaTakeover is from #lpPathfinders @LifePartII who will be sharing some shots from his recent road trip through #France en route to Portugal. 'In 2011 I took early retirement to see the world, peruse my dreams of becoming #travel writer/photographer and, most of all, to have some adventures. Even though I travel all corners of the world, I find myself returning again and again to France. When I am not travelling I live in various 'bases' around the world. I am currently living with my partner, Sarah, in a tiny seaside village in central Portugal.' Stay tuned this weekend for more!

This week's #lpfanphoto is from @phil_northeast who snapped the lucious English landscape in Yorkshire #England . With a population as big as Scotland's and an area half the size of Belgium, #Yorkshire is almost a country in itself. It has its own flag, its own dialect and its own celebration, Yorkshire Day -- Every Friday we regram a #lpfanphoto . Tag your best #travel shots for a potential feature. Happy travels!
