  Paris, France:
My favorite place to meander in Paris is Monmartre. I think that I could walk on this hill every day of my life and still discover something new on each walk. On one walk, I discovered this street, rue Cortot. It captured my attention enough for me to stop and sketch the walkway on the north side (not pictured). The south side had beautiful buildings dressed in ivy. I left with a burning desire to live on this street. (Many months later, I saw this street again... in one of the final scenes of the film Amélie.)
