Paris, Je t'aime

If fairytales existed I swear they would all take place in Paris. Paris is a city were everyone falls in love with before they've ever been, where little girls dream of having their honeymoon and of course the first home of fashion. I had the gift of being able to travel there this summer. Although I only was there for a mere 3 days, it was the most enchanted 3 days of my life. I, being the biggest fan of bread and desserts, have never eating so well and such delicious food in all my life. It was above 30degrees Celsius everyday, my last day being 39, which made it nearly impossible to function, but regardless I spent the first two days walking everywhere and never taking the subway once, and my final day on a boat cruise and in line for 45minutes for Notre Dame. Speaking of boat tours, the 'canal tour' as it is advertised was probably my favourite experience in Paris. Already being a boat person to start, the tour was so stunning and perfect for seeing the riverside estates, the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame from both a far and up close. I didn't book or buy ahead, I just hopped on right next to the Notre Dame and across the street from the Shakespeare Book Store. I don't think I need to tell any of you to visit Paris, but I will definitely urge you all to visit the Parisian Opera, as it is the most beautiful building I have ever stepped foot in. I didn't actually attend the show, but for a couple of euros you are able to tour the opera during the day. I unfortunately have yet to have an affair with a Frenchmen, but I will be going back as soon as my bank account can recover from the weekend. Enjoy and one day live in Paris!
