“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a movable feast.” – Ernest Hemingway
As I sit here in my pajamas, tired from a long day at work, and waiting for my boyfriend to come home, I started thinking about Paris. I started thinking about the streets, the food, the lights, the ambiance, and how Audrey Hepburn was right: “Paris is always a good idea.”
Since the Christmas before, James and I had been talking about how magical it would be to have Christmas in Paris. Although we had never been to Paris, we knew how magical it is. We wanted to be apart of it, so we started planning. After months and months of waiting and longing, the trip was finally here.
Part III: Focusing on the Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower
We did not go up in the Eiffel Tower, but walking around it made for the best stroll I’ve ever had. I knew it was big, but seeing it in person made me feel like the tiniest ant. Since we went during Christmas, there was a cute Christmas market across the street. James and I got some hot mulled wine and trailed our way around the most iconic Paris landmark.
