After a few drafts I realize that whatever words I can assemble together into a few sentences is not enough to tell the story of my time in Paris. There is so much to see and understand that one trip is just not enough. I will leave you with this quote by Pico Iyer that perfectly captures the spirit of what I experienced there.
“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.” -Pico Iyer
