Paris was so inspirational. The fact that a place like this exists is so humbling.
Breathtaking views that just go on for miles and miles. The palaces, the monuments, the carousels around every corner. We found ourselves changed people by the end of the trip and just fell completely in love with the city. (I’ve heard of that happening before but this trip was a real game changer for me.)
Aside from the views, on views, on views- the cafe lifestyle was so refreshing to be a part of. The French take time during their day to stop at a cafe and enjoy a coffee or tea. They sit for a while and the seats face the street so you can just stay a while and watch the world around you. Slowing down a bit was a lesson for me that I won’t soon forget.
