Paris was such a surreal experience. And that is an understatement. This may sound like, actually, it might be a cliché but I've waited my whole life to go to Paris! So much so that when I was there; I was registering that I was taking the metro with all the French; when I was at the Louvre, my brain registered that I was in one of the most famous museums in the world; and that it played a crucial role in the Da Vinci Code; but it was only when I was in front of the Glass Pyramid; and walking along Rue de Rivoli, towards the Place de la Concorde that it hit me. I'm in Paris. The feeling is indescribable and as I'm doing this post, I can still remember the excitement, the buzz I had in me; I'm sure if I have the guts to, I would have probably done a little jig on the pavement or something!

Having said that, I'm sorry for the amount of photos which I've flooded this post with! A grand total of 30, I cannot bear to cut down on anymore pictures (there's more on Photobucket!) because there's so much  that I want to share with you! As you would probably have guessed, and like many of you reading this post would have done, this Francophile here is trying to cram as much as I can, about the City I dream of and love; into three, maybe four measly posts; so, do bear with me. I mean, after all, how often does a girl gets to go to Paris? Okay, for you Europeans, please do remember that I'm from the opposite end of the Earth!

Coat (Uniqlo), Sweater & Skirt (H&M), Tights (From a really long time ago!), Boots (Jones Bootmaker)


On a side note, I would like to thank all of you who have been reading and commenting on my posts! I haven't been blogging to an... audience(?!) at least, those that I know of, for a long, long time and I'm still surprised by the number of comments that I've received! I'm really thankful for each and every one of you; and your comments are what motivates me to do a better job with my posts each time and they really do put a smile on my face when I read them! THANK YOU!
