Paris, what is there to say other than, wow.
This was my first time in France and I have to admit, I'd heard some things about Parisians that they are not the friendliest of people. However, I'm here to tell you that that's all BS. They were the nicest people ever and no matter where you looked everything was beautiful. The architecture, the floor details, the ceiling details, the food, and even the fruit stands were positioned in ways that look like an editorial spread, which just goes to show that beauty is very deeply rooted in French culture. Honestly, Paris is a creative mind's paradise.
There were so many sights to see and things to do, time seemed to always pass by at rapid speed. That's not to say I rushed because I didn't, in fact, I took my sweet time everywhere I went which also turns out is a very French thing to do. Everywhere, sitting down to enjoy the moment was encouraged, and even if you were in a hurry your server would make sure you spent at least an hour everywhere... Things moved pretty slow, but I quickly learned to love it.
Paris is a place I liked to call, movie-like, and I know I'll be back. I mean, really it felt as if I'd been there before, which was a very surreal feeling. Next time, I'll be there in the spring or summer so I'm not bundled up in multiple jackets, see the stunning fountains while they're on, and of course just to get another experience.
Overall, it was amazing and if you are planning a trip soon here's a style tip. All black everything, with white Stan Smith Adidas, is the go-to look for literally everyone in Paris.
& yes, I'm aware that's also my go-to look... & no, I didn't know before. :)
