a parisian summer

Je suis sous le charme

The return of Sydney’s infamous summer weather in the middle of Spring brings me back to the summer I shared with Paris; unbelievably, just under three months ago. A short five days in the city of love was all I needed for my heart to melt under its blistering beauty [and heat]. This city has just that charm in its air that has the ability to cast a spell over you and leave you in a daze. Traveling to the top of the Arc de Triomphe  or better yet, the Eiffel Tower were definitely the highlights of my Parisian summer. I was lucky enough to witness Paris from above at midday and at dusk. There, you feel like you’re on top of the world, [or Willow Smith] as the wind whips your hair back and forth, with the veins of the city  unfold beneath you; an image you can never erase.  I could create a list as to why you should visit France but I will refrain – you know what they say: ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’.
