Paris was every bit of magic. I didn't think it could be any more beautiful, but then it was. Just like that. Every corner, every street, every door, every pillar, every building, every "every," provided the perfect photo opportunity. C'est magnifique!
The French were pretty awesome. I know they get a bad rep for being "rude," but rude people are everywhere. On our first night, we got so lost trying to find our flat (bonjour Airbnb!) in Montmartre. After walking in circles in the rain, I approached a French girl and asked, "Bonsoir, mademoiselle. Parlez vous Anglais?" Home girl whips out her iphone and starts looking up directions for us. I think as long as you greet them politely and not just demand, "Where's the metro?," they'll be more than happy to help. :)
P.S. This is just the beginning of my Paris photo diaries. More to come. Way more. Oh, and can you can believe all these photos were taken on our first day!?! Looking back, we could've put our cameras down a little more...
first caffeine sips at Cafe Florio. You never forget your first (especially when it's $8... welcome to Saint Germain!). So, "they" say...
Museums in Paris are quite amazing, even if you don't like art or museums.
Once a train station, now an impressive museum.
Time is a matter of perception.

“I have always considered imaginative truth to be more profound, more loaded with significance, than every day reality... Everything we dream about, and by that I mean everything we desire, is true (the myth of Icarus came before aviation, and if Ader or Bleriot started flying it is because all men have dreamed of flight). There is nothing truer than myth... Reality does not have to be: it is simply what is.” ― Eugène Ionesco, Notes and Counternotes
