"Everyone dreams of living in Paris."
"Paris is always a good idea." ~Audrey Hepburn
When I was in college I was lucky enough to travel through Europe. It was the first time I had ever backpacked anywhere and I loved it. I was also fortunate enough to spend a few days in the city I have always dreamed of going, Paris. It was exactly how I imagined it would be. The sights, sounds and atmosphere was something straight out of my dreams.
Even though it was only a couple of days, Paris has stuck with me ever since.
I believe the reason I adore Parisian culture so much is because of the romance that fills the air. It truly is the city of love and lights. You fall in love with everything, from the street signs to the flowers, to the bakery around the corner. One of the best things to do when your'e exploring Paris, is just to walk around and take in the sights. Don't worry so much about seeing the tower or Louvre, you'll get there. But walk around and really get to know what the city has to offer.
Happy chances happen in Paris.
One of my favorite movies, Amelie, is centered around a young girl in Montmartre. In one of the scenes she encourages her love interest to go on a chase throughout the city. When I visited the area where this scene was filmed I decided to walk the same steps as in the film. I was epically surprised to see that some of the stuff was still hanging around. As I followed the "signs" and ended in the same place as these characters did. The end of the trail over look the entire city, it was a postcard come to life.
Paris is more than a place, it's a dream, a vision, a lifestyle.
I am currently reading four books; The Parisian Diet, Parisian Chic, PARIS, & a Macaron cookbook. Told ya, obsessed. My plan of attack is this, surround myself as if I am living my goals, I will manifest them into my present. So if I surround my self in Paris, I will manifest a trip into my life soon. Sounds pretty legit to me.
Paris, is my dream, what's yours?
