Paris

One of my favorite cities in the world is Paris. I went a few years ago with my sister and some of our best friends and we had an amazing time. 

Some people say the French don’t like Americans, they are rude, etc – but I did not find that to be the case at all!! Everyone we met was really nice.  My French is nowhere near where I’d like it to be – but I remember enough from High School to ask simple questions or make (very small) small talk. Whenever I spoke to someone in French – and they could see that I was struggling – the conversation switched to English. Before I go back again, though – I would really like to learn the language better.

But even besides all that – Paris is just a beautiful city. We only had 4 days there and it was chilly and rainy almost the whole time, but it was still so beautiful!!! On the one sunny afternoon, we took advantage of the break in weather and had a picnic under the Eiffel Tower.

I remember before I went thinking – I bet the Eiffel Tower is cool, but I wasn’t all that excited to see it. Let me tell you – it is beautiful. I know, I know its just a big tower made out of iron – but for whatever reason, it is breathtaking.
I cannot wait to go back there – any time I see a movie set in Paris, my heart swoons and my knees get weak.
