The city of love as Hollywood, and basically the whole world wants us to believe. I too fall victim to this accolade.
During my buck-toothed days when fairy tales exist, I always wanted to go and look below from the heights of the enormous and elegant Eiffel Tower.
To have the Prince Charming of my life, kiss me during the dusk in the fabric of the sky where the moon dims bright as it is sewed in its material ever so blissfully created.
As a fully capable woman, finally have reached the destination, where I think most women tend to dream of reaching, the streets have paved coffee shops France has eloped and abundantly have the scent I cravingly adore since birth.
Arrived on the 14th of June of 2017, immediately after I set foot on the grounds of the beloved country, I have crossed out one of the million bucket lists in a scrapbook I kept all those years.
The day after my landing, Word Press Europe 2017 is lurking around.
I was so thankful for the opportunities that an event such as this has fully lead me to the place I so deeply coveted on visiting all my life.
I feel so lucky to have crossed and roamed the City of Paris; from Pont des Arts Bridge, connecting the Louvre and de France across the Seine.
The feeling of walking the streets where lamp posts do exist like in the movies reminds you that true love does exist.
When someday, I get to look at the eyes of my significant other during a four o’clock afternoon sunset shade.
Where the shadows of his eyes, ever so willingly cover the little details that construct the enigmatic beauty of the outline of his face and shows truly why a person thus seem to instantly portray beauty with his or her own perspective.
The vibe of the Georgian Era lifestyle that lingers the French atmosphere, is felt from where I was sitting in my plane seat 150 miles apart from France.
But the one thing, that one feeling of; a mix of success and satisfaction upon my visit in Paris, is to experience once and for all the joy and intricacies of having to wear the fashion, people seem to completely have passion and love for, of classic European style.
To me what stands out most when I think of France, is women, men, and children having to wear trench coats while crossing the evergreen meadow streets that captivates the essence of its wonderful culture.
A quick visit to a vintage bookstore that staples my warm stay, is truly by definition: A solid visit to a grand city such as Paris.
