For me, Paris has been the most elusive city in Europe. I have been to several places in Italy, Germany, Netherlands, and France but I have never been to Paris. It has been in my bucket list for some time now and I have set myself up to check it off this year. I am going to Paris!
A bunch of friends are planning a trip together, visiting Italy and France in the Spring. Since, I have been to much of Italy, I am going to probably meet them in Rome and then head to Paris for one full week! I am ready!
We are planning on renting a chateau with a few bedrooms where all of us could stay. Our budget, as it has always been, is very small. We’re frugal travelers. As much as we like to dine out and go places, we still make sure that we are getting the biggest bang for our buck. And this time will be no different.
Ever since I was a kid, I have always wanted to visit the Eiffel Tower. Something about it intrigues me. It’s one of the most romantic cities in the world! How could it not?
I am so prepared to travel (minimized my travels last year due to school and budget constraint) this year. I aim to visit Australia as well, God-willing and time-permitting, since one of my very close friends is moving there to finish graduate school on a full scholarship. Hey, whenever I can stay for free – - I’m golden!
So, for now, I can only dream – - and I can only plan. But Spring time is near, it’ll be here before you know it!
I promise, I will post lots of pictures.
Cheers and Happy New Year!
