tb to Paris last November - I only had 1 proper full day and night, so I rode around on a lime scooter up and down the little cobbled streets for a couple hours late at night and made sure I checked all the things off the list like the louvre, notre dame etc etc. I lay down on the ground by the water a good little while and watched the Eiffel light up on the hour.
I haven’t dreamed of lots of places but I always wanted to go to Paris and I’ll never forget coming up out of the underground to seeing the square and all the buildings with pretty balconies and the beautiful autumn weather. I checked into my little Airbnb then put my black boots on and red lipstick and took myself to dinner and called my best friends telling them I’d made it to Paris finally. Brought myself lingerie and tried to love myself and be at peace as best I could. I met a lovely soul who drew a portrait of me in Montmartre and I will never forget the soft voice he spoke from and the things he said. I’ll be back one day and for longer.
