I first visited Paris at the age of 18 with my parents, sister, and an ex-boyfriend in tow. From that moment on, I was hooked. The magic and mystery that had fascinated old and young alike for centuries had now entrapped me too. I now live in Paris… There’s a reason why so many people are in love with Paris. There’s a reason why Paris is the city of love. There’s a reason Paris is the city of lights. Paris encapsulates something I’ve never seen anywhere else in the World and I can’t quite put my finger on it. And these quotes about Paris will prove why this is the case…

Paris encapsulates all that it is to be free and alive. There are bars, cafés, dancing, drinking, eating, sightseeing and people choosing to do a million different things just because they can. Paris is a celebration of life. Paris is a city of dreams.


Paris is not just a city for lovers, but a city to fall in love with.

    Ahhhh I love these! What a good idea for a blog post that’s so simple. Paris is one of those places that’s so hard to explain to people! When I first visited, it wasn’t my cup of tea, and what fascinated me the most was even though I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would, it STILL made me want to go back! To this day I don’t understand it. It’s like a relationship that you know is bad, but you keep going back to. Does that even makes sense? Okay I am rambling now. Paris is lovely and it’s so awesome you get to call it home. 🙂
