La Tour Eiffel, view from Montmartre
La Tour Eiffel suddenly appears at the end of the street
Carousel in Montmartre
After only a few hours in Paris, I realised that I could very easily adjust to an everyday life consisting of croissants and café au lait for breakfast. Then jump on the metro to go explore another part of this elegant city or walk along the banks of La Seine. It's very tempting to give in to the dreams of living an artist (or even bohemian) life here, taking everything day by day and just enjoying these beautiful surroundings. There's clearly enough sources of inspiration here to last for a long time. But then again I think I appreciate all the charming little aspects of Paris even more when I'm only supposed to stay for a few days. I felt I cherished and enjoyed each and every moment I spent here as much as possible, knowing that this dream-vacation would have to come to an end after a few days. And let's hope that in the near future there will be opportunities to return and create more memories and take more photographs in lovely Paris.
