When you think about Paris, what comes to your mind? The Eiffel Tower? Outdoor cafes? The french language? Walks by the Seine River? Β I never believed it before either, but there truly is something romantic about all of those things and I was surprised to feel that romance during the 3 days I spent there! The architecture, the art, the history, and the food … Paris has quite the range and epitome of all of them, and they exude the concept of romance in their essence.

The architecture

I was speechless in awe when walking around the streets of Paris. The level of sophistication & beauty in all of its buildings was mind blowing!

The lawns

People in Paris definitely seem to be taking advantage of the green lawns and amazing views around the city on a beautiful day.

The romance

The pebble stone streets are narrow with outdoor cafes. The cafes have tiny round tables with 2 cozy chairs for couples to snuggle while enjoying their croissants and afternoon espressos. Β The bridges, overlooking the greatest sights of Paris, are perfectly situated to allow a long romantic walk while holdings hands. The Eiffel tower is all lit up all night for a long romantic picnic after the sunset.

Speaking of romance, I definitely had the perfect Parisian night on the last day of my stay there ❀ Who would have expected that I would pop a champagne bottle in front of the Eiffel Tower, have a picnic while watching the light show, enjoy a long romantic walk by the Seine river, and have hours of an amazing conversation with an interesting person all in 1 night??

Everything about Paris blew my mind … I wish I could delay my departure as long as possible ❀

Now off to Barcelona πŸ™‚
