I have always dreamed about seeing the Eiffel Tower in person, and I will never forget the moment that I looked up into the sky, to see it sparkling right in front of my very eyes. I will also never forget the amazing dinner I had with my friends, where the restaurant was situated right next to the Eiffel Tower. There is something so special about being able to see world-famous landmarks for the first time, and this moment really grounded me, allowing me to recognize how fortunate I am to be able to be traveling across Europe each weekend.
With that being said, I think it is safe to say that I fell in love with Paris. I loved the streets lined with cafes, the fashion of the locals (I felt like I was in a scened of Emily in Paris), the food and just the overall atmosphere. I mean, it is not everyday that I am eating a chocolate croissant with my friends, on our way to the Louvre. I felt like I had to pinch myself multiple times on this trip because I could not believe that I was actually in Paris!
I really enjoyed taking the metro out to Versailles as well and being able to see the Palace. The architecture and the gold trim along the palace was absolutely stunning. This is definitely a must-do in France.
This may have been my first trip to Paris, but it is certainly not my last. I can’t imagine a trip topping this one, but I still have so much time left in Europe. As they say in France, “Au Revoir!”
