guest post: Prêt à Voyager.
today, we’re taking a wee trip to paris, with Anne S. Ditmeyer — a graphic designer / editor and author of Prêt à Voyager. She’s been a Design*Sponge contributing editor sharing “sneak peeks” since 2008, and her work has been published in Anthology, Dwell, and more.

Have you ever noticed how the best inspiration doesn’t happen when you’re sitting in front of the computer? For me it comes when I’m swimming laps or wandering the streets. Granted, I’m lucky to call Paris home, but anywhere you go there is inspiration around you. I love walking and how a one-way street suddenly becomes two-way. Or the way that the same view can change depending on time of day or weather, or you look up and discover a new detail. This summer one of my addictions has become Instagram. And while taking pictures on your phone isn’t 100% disconnecting, being out and about in the world is a start. So I decided to pull together some of my favorite (and your – I picked the most “liked”) shots from Paris to help challenge you to start to look at where you live in a new way too.
