Known as the city of lights and also as the city of love, Paris has a charm to it that just makes you almost wish you could drop everything, learn french and become a Parisian. Paris left me with my head in the clouds. My boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Paris after I had mentioned to him (awhile back) that Paris was a city that I would one day love to visit. Low and behold, on my 25th birthday, I found out that a trip had been booked for us. This was most certainly the most elaborate surprise I had ever received and it truly meant so much.
