You had me at bonjour

Tonight is my fifth and final night in Paris and whilst it has been a short love affair, it has been one to remember. The Seine, Notre Dame, Tour Eiffel, Musee du Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, the escargot, the pain au chocolat, the cannard, the creme brulee, the cognanc, the vin rouge... a girl could go on and on and on.

I love the romance of the city - it's everywhere, from the buildings to the stories, to the vibe. Yes, that could partly be me reading into everything I see but honestly, I have not come across any of the rude and arrogant Parisians I had been warned about, only people willing to battle through pseudo-French with me to find out what I want, and lovely walking tour guides who explain the stories behind the facades with such grace that you fall in love three times over before your tour concludes. I cannot wait to come back here for a summer and experience (and join) the Parisians drinking wine by the river, watching the sun set over Notre Dame, and learning how to tango by the banks of the Seine.

  1. I've been to Paris twice and it's never, ever enough. I want to live there for a year and just write and eat bread.

    So jealous of your adventures but I love reading about them!
