France blew my expectations out of the water. I had only positive experiences while there, and thoroughly enjoyed the people, landmarks, culture, and of course, the food! Moments after we landed, we spotted our first Starbucks in over a month. As four American college girls, we not only screamed with happiness, but ran to the line to order our first of many iced caramel macchiatos of the trip. Italy has been amazing, but France had the cold, crisp feel of winter and it was refreshing. We visited the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame de Paris, The Arc de
Triomphe de l’Étoil, Moulin Rouge and a few other amazing sights while we were there. We walked a total of ten miles Saturday but it was definitely worth it. We bought art from amazing street artists and drank coffee while overlooking the rivers. The cuisine was to die for. We also got to taste crepes, homemade pastries, amazing sausage and cheese salads, fresh bread, and croissants.
Paris now holds a little piece of my heart, until next time!
