Paris; the only word that can make me shed tears in less than one second.
Paris; my ultimate dream that somehow came true.

We searched for hotels & flights & metro stations & museums & shopping & food. I used to look at my research & kept thinking to myself: “is this real?”. It was. We bought our ticket planes with matching chairs {we randomly chose a number & said it together: 23! It was a sign!} & we booked our hotel, that turned out to be better than we expected. It was 11pm when we fastened our plane seat bealts & Paris was about to become real.

I invite you to come along & relive those glorious days with me.
