Today I find myself in Paris--what a magical city! It is such a contrast from Barcelona's riot of colors but has its own beauty nonetheless. I can't wait to try my first real Parisian croissant or to take a long walk by the famous Seine River! Of course, you can't really walk anywhere in this city without seeing the Eiffel Tower. To be honest, it is so exciting--and a little disorienting--to be seeing so many wonderful cities and sights on this whirlwind trip. I mean, I've spent most of my childhood reading books and watching movies about Paris, Barcelona, and London, that it is such a dream to actually be experiencing these cities now. Part of me feels like a character in one of my books than a real person experiencing the world through rose-colored glasses, as Audrey Hepburn would say in Sabrina.
During our stay in Paris, we'll be spending time walking the streets, visiting the Louvre, and searching for that perfect croissant. We'll also be taking a day trip to Versailles, home of the famous French palace once occupied by Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. I can't wait to explore the palace and its gardens!
