Hello, Paris. It’s been nearly 5 years since I’ve seen you!
Two weeks ago I booked my one way ticket to Paris using British Airways miles and tonight I went wandering around town. I still can’t believe I’m here. I have an apartment on the Seine in the 1st that has a great view of Il De La Cite. I have no real itinerary for this trip other than starting off in Paris and ending somewhere in Spain – I don’t even have a flight back home at the moment. And this is a solo trip – something I haven’t done in nearly 10 years. The last time I explored alone was in 2003 when I visited Berlin and Prague.
Weather is a tad chilly but bearable. My fingers went numb from carrying around the tripod. Regardless of feeling my extremities, I’m excited to be back. Looking forward to my time here during winter. One of my favorite things about travelling during off season is that I don’t have to deal with large crowds/tourists (even though I am a tourist myself) :).
