In a city so well-known and loved, where does discovery lie? In the thrill of the new, yes, but also in the surprise of memories waiting around every corner.
I have visited the City of Light before, but this time around, I’m back at the ideal time of year, end of June, at the peak of summer’s blossom, and with the ideal person, the love of my life, to celebrate the ideal event, our wedding anniversary.
It is perfect really, the culmination of everything romantic in a city that drips romance from every nook and corner. But it’s also a lot pressure, how do you introduce the city that captured your heart to your husband so that it can capture his heart too?
I was a bit worried, wondering, do I take him to the signature Parisian locations, or do I take him to the places that lingered in my heart the longest? Then I realized I was over-thinking it; when I went to Paris the first time, I didn’t end up loving the city for the reasons I had anticipated. Paris became a great romance because of the unexpected happenstances and serendipitous memories that just, were… So I decided, to let Paris, be!
And I’m glad I did, Apollo Robbins promised to take me back to this magnificent beauty, next year..
How about you? Where’s your great city love? Where does your heart ache for?
