Parisian

There are cities that everyone goes crazy about, but when you get there you find yourself overwhelmingly underwhelmed.

Then there will always be cities that people discourage you to visit because of its negative reputation, but when you get there the city sweeps you off your feet and you fall in love with it.

Finally, there will always be the cities that are world famous, expensive, overly touristic and cliché but when you arrive, you understand why. I was in the city of light. I was in Paris.

There’s never a wrong time for drinking wine.

Granted I didn’t take a lot of photographs in Paris, as I was trying to soak in as much as I can without my camera on the last few days of my trip before heading back home to Asia, but damn this city is beautiful.
