Travel photo of the day
Cannes city view
As a travel blogger and photographer, I get to visit a lot of places but only a few destinations really resonate with me. I fell in love with Cannes and the city's iconic film festival over ten years ago and try to return each year.
Part of my ritual is to stay at the same hotel, and I always stay at the Citadines Croisette Cannes. The hotel offers mini apartments, with kitchens, allowing me to feel more like a local. I like to stay in the same suite each year and have spent many hours on the balcony in the photo, enjoying a glass of wine after a day of festival meetings and screenings.
This photo was taken in May 2014 during the Cannes Film Festival. I took the photo myself with a Sony Action Cam which has a wide angle lens, offering a unique perspective on this French city.
