PARIS / FRANCE

The wonderful city of Paris.

For as long as I can remember I have always dreamed of visiting the city of Paris and to finally have one of my greatest fantasies come to life has been, undoubtedly, magical. Paris is a place like no other. A kaleidoscope of culture, colour and vibrancy. France in general teems with an unexplainable passion for life. What a pleasure it has been for my family and I to be graced with the charm of the capital city of a truly phenomenal country.

From Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower, a boat trip down the River Seine, a walk up to the Arc de Triomphe, an exploration of The Louvre Musee all topped off with wine & fine dining at a quaint sidewalk café in the space of two days.

On the 14th of July France celebrated Bastille day.

A day of liberation, triumph and great joy.

“Justice and power must be brought together, so that whatever is just may be powerful, and whatever is powerful may be just.” – Blaise Pascal

I still remember what the 13th of November 2015 looked like for me. A lazy morning, breakfast in bed and a movie marathon with my friends. However, to the world, the 13th of November 2015 was a day of great sadness and suffering. The evening before, a series of terrorist attacks took place in Paris claiming the lives of 130 innocent civilians. I remember hearing the news and turning on the television to see a country in mourning. We felt it only right, nearly two years on from the attacks to visit the place where the attacks unfolded and to pay our respects.

Gone.

Never forgotten.

All in all, I feel my family’s time in Paris was a time to reconnect and relax from our day-to-day crazy lives and see the world in a new light.

 

 

 

It is safe to say Paris is one of my all time favourite cities. A city that stands with pride for all its accomplished, all it’s nation represents and for its refusal to bow to the fear of terror imposed on its people.
