I’ve been to Paris once. When I was 18 and studying abroad in Siena, Italy, a few of my classmates and I decided we wanted to go somewhere since we had the next couple of days off, and our time in Italy was coming to a sad end. We walked over to the train station and thought to pick another city in Italy to travel to. Well, it turned into why not pick another country to travel to since we were in Europe and might as well, right? We looked at our options and it turned out that Paris was just a 12 hour train ride away.
We decided it was a GREAT idea, knowing full well we’d only be able to be there for just 24 hours. I went home, packed a few things, and met them all back at the train station. Needless to say, after my parents heard about this little trip, they were not happy. After-the-fact, my mom admitted she was happy I took advantage of going to see the City of Light.
However, I promised myself that someday I will go back. Whether it’s next year (hint hint Hector 1 year anniversary) or in 10 years, I will see the city I’ve admired and loved once again.
