You never need an excuse to look at photos of Paris. There are so many great Instagram photo spots around Paris and some photos that you’ll want to print out and cherish forever. What is it about this city that is just so magical?
It’s been a year since I was last strolling through these cobbled streets, navigating the metro, drinking noisettes in the park and trying to convince Luke that we should move here. Whether you only have a day in Paris or you’re spending a week or more exploring, there’s always something hiding around the corner, some little cafe, cute cobbled street, or delicious baguette to enjoy.
I love this city. I love it like I’ve never loved any other city. It’s the sort of place where I just feel like anything is possible. I feel like I could be whoever I want to be here and the person I become when I’m here is who I want to be all the time.
I feel creative and strong, I feel beautiful and happy and kind. I wrote more in the two weeks I was here than I did for most of 2016. Maybe I read too much Hemingway in my early 20’s, maybe I spent too much time wandering past Shakespeare and Co.
It’s like I could feel the energy of all the writers and artists that have called this city home. Maybe, even if just for the few weeks we were there, I felt like I could be just like them.
