The city of love and the epitome of fashion. The city that every hopeless romantic dreams about visiting with their better half and be proposed at the Eiffel tower. Unfortunately I have nothing new to say about it, no new perspective or useful tourist information other than what tons of other people have already written about. So for this post , I’m just expressing my feelings towards this city.
The first time I visited Paris was in 2006, and I remember not being impressed and for this second time, I just didn’t fall in love with it.
Don’t get me wrong, Paris is beautiful, the monuments, the streets, the impressive Louvre and more. It’s not like I didn’t enjoy my days in Paris, I was super happy to find a Forever 21 store and do some damage, walk around streets sorrounded by little coffee shops and couture shops and just spend some quality time with my family. And at night I couldn’t help but hope that the car from “Midnight in Paris” would pick me up and take me back to the “belle epoque”.
I went to all the tourist places with my family, took cliché pictures of them and ate crêpes. I guess my issue with Paris was, that I didn’t discover anything new, and that’s entirely my fault. So for that reason I would love to give Paris one more try, to explore and find out the things that are out of the “typical” tourist paths.
