After much fantasizing and planning, I have decided to go on a trip to Paris! The very thought of actually getting on a plane and several hours later, actually landing in Paris still baffles me. It’s always been a cliched dream of mine (yeah, yeah, I know) but nevertheless always a dream I kept in the back of my mind. Now it’s happening for real.

After a pretty hectic work year, I decided that booking this trip would be my reward for persevering through it. So I started a savings plan and actually stuck to it. I booked the trip a couple of months ago and officially sealed the deal, Paris is beckoning.

I think one of the things I am most excited and scared about is exploring the city on my own. My French is not strong, so I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of adventures I get into!

My best friend Katie – who recently moved to the UK – will be joining me for a few days in Paris as well, which is something I have been anticipating since she left.

I head off on the 13th of October and will be there for 2 weeks. If any of you will be in Paris around then, please let me know! I would love to meet you.
