Paris has a way of finding its way into your heart, consuming every fibre of your being like a completely irrational, whirlwind romance. Arriving in Paris with a modest French vocabulary, you easily get a feeling of being thrown headlong into the deep end – the Parisians aren’t exactly known for their accommodating attitude. However, you will settle in. London may boast a cosy atmosphere whilst Berlin has its hipster cool, but Paris is the prettiest of them all – with wide boulevards, gorgeous bridges and almost psychedelic orange sunsets.
The Eiffel Tower was only meant to stand for 20 years. It was completed in two years for the 1889 World’s Fair.
Paris is a generous city feeding its citizens with a constant flow of culture and happenings. Paris will never be a routine. The French consciously cultivate the hint of human madness and megalomania that is inside all of us, and as a result, they are always up to something crazy.
