Paris, Je t’aime

Ha Paris! Who has not dreamed of the romantic city? Waking up in a Paris, listening to the guy on the bank of the Seine river playing “La Vie en Rose” with the accordion, eating croissants from the Boulangerie of the corner!

Well, I was so excited to hear that Delta Airlines is finally bringing the Raleigh, Durham area, a direct flight to Paris in the spring 2016. No more connections to no end, to fly there. As a French/ American Citizen, I look forward to a long weekend in the Capital of fashion, the country of gourmet food, the history of such an old European country.

I imagine, leaving on Thursday night from RDU, arriving Friday morning in Paris, enjoying the day walking Montmartre, seeing the Eiffel towel, going on a tour in a “Peniche” (the French Seine River sightseeing boat), and finishing the evening eating in a local Bistro. Saturday, I would be waking up to the smell of the “Pain au chocolat “, and spending the day¬†at the Louvre, or Versailles….. And Sunday come back home to RDU.

Of course, that would mean that Monday morning , I would be totally homesick for my croissant! I would take my car, and end up at the French Corner Bakery ….

France, Paris, Home

In 15 days exactly I will be leaving for France.

As I am planning my trip, I can not help to be even more pressed to leave. I really need it! For some reason there is a comfort about being there.

No other cities in the world can replace Paris!

I dream about walking the city at night, camera on hand, listening to my music.

I dream about sitting on the stairs of the Sacre-Coeur basilique watching lovers hold hands.

I dream about walking around Montmatre , watching painters and artists. I dream about walking the Champs-Elysee, le Trocadero, la Tour Eiffel.

I dream of Paris! I dream of home…
