It’s taken me a long time to sum up my feelings on this amazing city. It was a whirlwind six days, walking, taking the metro, eating cheese, drinking champagne.
Laughing so hard it hurt, crying over my Bordeaux because I like to get emotional when I drink, lol. Talking about everything from politics to kids to boys to photography.
I loved the city. It was stunningly beautiful, with some of the most incredible buildings that I’ve ever seen. It was loud, crowded, rainy and still so very wonderful.
Jess and I had THE BEST time, and she’s just about the most patient person on the planet, because I am slow and lazy and like to take lots of people-watching breaks. (ok, champagne breaks)
I think Montmartre was my favorite area, Jess and I bought a bottle of champagne and shared it on the hill of the Sacré Cœur, watching the sun set over the city. I also loved the quiet little streets around the Notre Dame. The Eiffel Tower is awe-inspiring, especially at night. Disneyland Paris is small but with GREAT rides, and the Louvre is huge and filled with incredible artwork.
The best thing about the trip though, when I reflect back on it, is the time I got to spend with one of my very best friends. It made us both realize that we don’t need grand trips or epic stories. We just need each other.
So in the City of Love, I had a love affair with friendship. And champagne. But mostly friendship. (and champagne)
