Bonjour Paris. When I arrived with a group of friends, I had this strange experience of longing to have someone to share this experience with. Strange it was indeed, as I wouldn’t necessarily claim to be a traditional romantic – in fact, I always loathed the idea of having to wait for a man in order to travel somewhere.
Yet Paris itself is a city like no other. Upon arrival in the city centre, there was a charming atmosphere around, almost like the city wanted to sweep you off your feet. The people had an air of mystery and class around them and as we explored different city parts throughout the two days we were visiting, I started to understand why it was called the city of love.
Lastly we went to see the Eiffel Tower at night. At dark, there is a beautiful light display on the Tour Eiffel that lasts approximately ten minutes. It almost looks like it is sparkeling! Those ten minutes made up one of the most magical moments I have ever experienced. Though I only got to see it from afar, I’d love to get to experience those ten minutes up on the Eiffel Tower one day. I can only imagine how beautiful (and romantic) it must be when you’re in the midst of all of those lights.
To finish off the night, we went to grab dinner at an Italian restaurant. It was the perfect way to end the evening; friends, exhausted laughter, pizza and wine.
Paris, it was a pleasure. What I learnt is that French architecture is stunning, making the city endlessly romantic. Paris is by far one of my favourite cities I have visited so far, I can’t wait to return one day! Who knows, maybe I’ll even get to experience that light show from the Tour Eiffel next time. Au revoir! ❤
