Paris

Paris. ::sigh:: Paris is just a dream.

We came fresh from snow-capped mountains and crystal blue Lake Geneva into romantic, golden-lit Paris. And it was all everything I hoped it would be. Everything in Paris is beautiful. It's an artist's dream. The buildings, cafes, arches, bridges - everything is so ornate. There is no ordinary. And there really are little men playing La Vie en rose on the accordion on street corners. I think I was floating an inch above the ground the entire time.

We stayed in an apartment right around the corner from the Luxembourg Gardens. This seemed like prime relaxation location. There were young and old men playing chess together in the park, people reclined with a book, and college kids sitting in circles playing guitars and singing.

The Louvre!

Next stop: Versailles. The crowds were a little overwhelming, but it was totally worth it, especially the gardens. There is so much to see and everything is so grand. It was definitely a sight to see.

And that's it! We headed back home from Paris. Such an incredible trip and I haven't stopped looking up flights back there ever since we got home. Until next time!

Bonne nuit!
