"Paris is always a good idea" - Audrey Hepburn
There was a time when I thought that statement might not hold any truth. Before ever visiting Paris, I always assumed it was just one giant tourist trap. I had little desire to go there, but went just to get that coveted check mark on my bucket list. After our trip there in 2012, I all but ache to go back. I pegged this famous French city so, so wrong for too many years! There's truly something magical about Paris. Not sure if it's the tasty food, the architecture, the romance culture, or all the iconic landmarks, but there seems to be a common theme found among travelers...Paris totally captures your heart. You want to hate it, but all its wonderfulness bleeds right in and takes hold of you, whether you expected it to or not. I often look back on our time there and think fondly of picnic dinners on the Champ de Mars, the macarons at Lauduree, the way I felt the first time I saw the Eiffel Tower sparkle against the moonlight...all things that just scratch the surface of why our time there was so lovely. You may come into a Paris visit with reservations, but you'll come out of it with more than just an appreciation for art and French champagne. You leave with an insatiable urge to go right back and do it all over again. Guess Audrey is on to something after all? ;)
