Is there a place you’ve visited that you could happily move to? Although I fell for Venice last year when I went there, my heart still belongs to Paris.
I love London, it’s my hometown, it’s where my friends are and as Samuel Johnson said
when a (wo)man is tired of London, (s)he is tired of life.
But Paris, especially in Spring, is beautiful. My French is atrocious, but I can learn, I have French names so I would fit in, a whole district and I share a name.
I love the faded glamour of Montmartre and Pigalle, the wealth and gloss of the champs Elysee. The view from Sacre Coeur and the gargoyles on Notre Dame.
The madness of Parisian drivers, reversing down one way streets and ignoring traffic lights, the bistros on every corner, the Metro, the smell of fresh bread.
I don’t find charming the fact that no one scoops the dog poop or how rude shop assistants are.
But nowhere’s perfect, right?
Where’s your favourite place?
