The country of France is dripping with enviable landscapes made memorable by their connection to water-meandering rivers, turquoise seas, tinkling fountains. In "The Story of Eau," author Cristina Nehring writes of the land-liquid-love connection, accompanied by stirring panoramic shots by the celebrated photographer Harf Zimmermann.

Dream Trip entrant isachsen knows the joys to be had in Paris where earth meets water, as the entry "A Girl and Sailboat in Jardin du Luxembourg" demonstrates.

"To walk through Paris's Jardin du Luxembourg is always a pleasure, be it winter or summer," reads the entry that accompanies this photo of a petite Parisienne wrangling a toy boat on the pond in front of the French Senate building. "I like standing at the statue of the flute player and wondering how many famous artists and writers have walked by here through the decades."
