I have always dreamt of going to Paris. The dream of croissants for breakfast, macaroons in hand as I stroll along Champs Elysees, seeing the Eiffel tower lit up at night, seeing lovers from every corner walking hand in hand, see the beautiful people in their most elegant yet subtle beauty. Ohhh…. I have always wanted to see Paris… and I have finally seen it.
When I was a young girl, my dad went to Paris and brought back a small Eiffel tower figurine.
I loved it a lot.
He said that Paris is very beautiful, it is a place of love, art and fashion.
He said that one day, I will get to see it too.
And after 15 years- after studying, getting a job, and saving enough money to go for a decent trip, we decided to make the dream a reality…
My fiance decided that we book a flight to Paris! My heart raced to a million times per second.
I have never been happier. I really want to see it with my own eyes, is it really that magical of a place – and what the movies and literature depicts it to be? I just had to see it for myself. And oh, It was love at first sight.
These are some of the things I love about Paris.
Call it cliche- It is a lover’s paradise, Everywhere you go there are lovers. The place itself is very romantic, the language is so eloquently spoken… When french fight it still sounds like sensual whispers , there are artists, painters, singers all living for love of life.
It has one of the world’s most beautiful Art Galleries. I’m a the entrance of the Louvre. It is one of the biggest museum in the world and it holds the famous Mona Lisa, egyptian relics and beautiful renaissance paintings and greek sculptures.
Every building is picturesque
The buildings like like artworks
A place full of cute little things – (this is a handmade puppy made of strings)
Paris has beautiful skyline. This is the view from the second highest level from the Eiffel tower.
Its a place to explore your creativity and be inspired by artists. This is Montramarte- a place where artists/ student/ family paint and sing and play musical instruments.
It is a place where great artists have lived.
Paris holds one of the world’s biggest and must luxurious gardens for the aristocracy. This is in Versaille, about 40 mins train ride from Paris CBD.
And how can I forget the romantic Seine river. It was dusk, love songs on the background, cool breeze, beautiful views and the bridges that you will cross when you cruise. Once you go under the bridge it will be jet black, it was a perfect time to steal a kiss. :-*
I would have liked to stay more than 4 days, and explore the culture of France more but I had to go to other cities in Europe too. But so far, Im happy to have seen and been to one of my dream places in my lifetime.
Oh Paris… One day, I will come back for you.
