Paris is definitely one of the most hyped up cities in the world. But despite that, it is an incredible place and there’s no getting around that fact. I’ve only been to the city thrice (and in ridiculously short spans of time) so this may be sort of a hasty observation or judgment, but I think the city sorta lives up to its reputation. Personally, I don’t think you have to be with someone special to enjoy Paris. For all its charm and kudos to Hollywood, you just tend to fall for the city itself. I consider the city as a more European version of London and the language barrier only makes it a more exciting place to discover and “get lost in.” Lotsa tourist traps though, so a bit of research would help before heading there!
Top tip: If you wanna skip the routine longass queue to climb la Eiffel, go during closing time!
For more on our Parisian break (in Nov 2011), here’s a little vid. It’s also one of the first videos I made so apologies for the dreadful second song and the length!
