Paris is penned in everyone’s bucket list as one of the must-visit city. With its beautiful architectures, magnificent views, and tourist spots; this is not a surprising matter. The moment you smell their appetizing croissant is the moment you start falling in love with this city.
But I’m writing this not as a former tourist, but as someone who enjoys imagining the idea of being in Paris. Anyhow, I’m acknowledging my infatuation with the city.
First, as a fashion enthusiast, most of the famous fashion magazines and brands begun here. Fashion magazines like L’Officiel, and brands like Chanel and Louis Vitton. And there’s the without a doubt one of the most anticipated week of the year, Paris Fashion Week, which gathers the countless fashion designers (and aspiring ones) who are on top of their game. Fashion icons/celebrities from different countries also attend the event.
Second, Paris is well-known for its delicacies. With their pastries (like macarons), chocolate, baguette, croissant, and gelato, which are also served with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee; the city just can’t go wrong with their art of cuisines. The idea of visiting every café in Paris is very appealing because you will also taste the culture that lies beneath it.
Third and certainly not the least is their astounding architectures. The Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris, Montmartre, Basilica of Sacré Coeur, and of course the Eiffel Tower. They said you will only understand why it’s called the City of Love when you stand in front of the Eiffel Tower.
Breathtaking is an understatement to describe it. Just by the photographs that I see of their spectacular architectures, I’m already in love with the thought of going there. Visualizing myself writing a story in my pastel pink notebook, and drinking a fresh cup of coffee after taking a bite of their dainty baguette and macaroon. Hopefully, having a chit-chat with their world-champion chocolatier. This is a dream city that’s perfect for every dreamer out there.
I will be with you, Paris. Soon.
