Is there anything else to say about Paris? The city is beautiful, home to beautiful people and beautiful food. Is it pretentious? Yeah, a bit. Does it deserve it all? Maybe. In all seriousness, the first time I didn’t know what to expect. It’s a big enough city to find anything you’re looking for, yet small enough to feel manageable and even familiar. Every time I’ve been to Paris, the City of Lights has lived up to all the hype.
