I’ve got Paris on the brain lately. Although I did visit Paris in 2004, I never lost my wanderlust for the place. I am perpetually absolutely in love with the city of light. In fact, so in love with the French capital am I that I have decided it’s about time I visit again. 2018…Paris, here I come!
I’m definitely a Francophile in the textbook sense of the word. I love visiting France. I love French food, I love French culture, movies and fashion. I’ve even been on a personal mission to learn to speak French for a couple years now. It’s going well, by the way, but I haven’t become fluent…yet. (Side note, if you’re interested in picking up a little French yourself, here are some resources: French Lessons: Useful Phrases for the French Speaking World…although lately I’ve been using Rosetta Stone to challenge myself a little more).
Anyway, my love for Paris leaves me constantly dreaming of those beautiful Parisian streets as I imagine myself sipping un café au lait at a sidewalk cafe. That’s why today I’m going to indulge in my Francophile desires and devote this Wanderlust Wednesday to my favorite city: Paris, France. Special thanks to the following Instagrammers for fueling my Wanderlust…

Square Jean-XXIII wonderfully photographed by @reginesemaan used to be called Square de l'Archevêché, at this location in the Middle Ages used to be a Voirie called Motta Papellardorum, a voirie was where people would bring their refuse, which was transformed into a garden. The actual garden was originally designed by Gabriel Thouin but destroyed in 1831 and the Comte de Rambuteau was commissioned to make the garden as you see it today, completed in 1844. A great place to have a sandwich in the summer time or simply to sit and take the time to smell the roses #thisisparis always something new to discover, taste & experience
