#FriFotos: One

14 Oct

There is nothing like seeing the Eiffel Tower lit up for the first time.

Today is a special edition of #FriFotos as the hashtag celebrated its one year anniversary. If you don’t know, #FriFotos is a forum on Twitter where travel enthusiasts share their photos based on a different travel theme each week. One year later, the brainchild of Jonathan Epstein (@EpsteinTravels), president of Celebrated Experiences, has become so popular it is featured in the media from Huffington Post to National Geographic’s Intelligent Travel blog.   Currently, the theme is announced every Tuesday and guest hosts help with the excitement globally including Charles Yap (@HotelPRGuy), PR for the Intercontinental Hotel Group, Stephanie Diehl (@TravelDesigned) and Kirsten Alana (@KirstenAlana) who celebrates the theme on Huffington Post.  The guidelines of Fri Fotos can be found here.

Although I don’t have a birthday candle photo or a photo of smeared chocolate cake over a baby face to celebrate the One theme, I thought I’d continue to do what I do and keep my photo related to a travel memory. So the one photo that kept reoccurring in my mind was the photo of the Eiffel Tower lit up at night. There is nothing like seeing the Eiffel Tower for the first time. It’s an iconic image. And though I do research heavily for my trips, I didn’t know at the time that there was a daily light show at night. While I was waiting for a friend, who showed up late, I was lucky enough to catch the Tower glittered up at night and as one of my favourite travel memories.  Plus, I’ve been getting a bit nostalgic for Paris lately, so I thought this would be a good tie-in to the theme.

Happy Birthday to #FriFotos and I’m looking forward to its continued success and growth!
