I made it to Paris.
I made it. . .
It took a long time for me to accept that I was here.
It took a longer time for me to write about it.
Even if there are a lot of other stories and descriptions about Paris, I am still writing my own for everyone else to read.And I hope to write even more. I've been thinking about how to compose this post, and I find it quite difficult because there are just a lot of things to be said. I believe that each person has a different way of approaching this city, you just have to be sort of in the middle to have the "Paris" of your dreams.I'm glad I've learned it while I still have time to spare in this amazing European city. What I mean is, let go and take your time.Don't get burned out. Spend some time getting lost without the help of maps or your smartphone, but of course, keep your earphones plugged to get into the vibe.
Don't be in a hurry to see everything in a matter of hours, that's what I did at first and it was very exhausting. Instead, take time to understand each site that you see. Learn its rich history or take time to just relax and take it all in.Everywhere you walk, there's inspiration. A simple walk from my flat to work can be the highlight of my day.
Part of my ideal sunday routine is to visit a garden or a park, because it relieves the stress in my system, and it prepares me for the weekday grind in the city.
The temperature in Paris now (winter season) can be a little bit of bi-polar because of the wind chills.Even if there is no snow, the breeze is really strong, which makes the cold even colder. There is a big opportunity for layering, which can be very tiring coming from my background growing up in a tropical country.
Today, I went to a palace. "Jardin et Palais du Luxembourg"
This used to be the royal palace of France under the reign of Queen Marie de Medici. The place is definitely a must-see on your list of things to do in Paris.
