Reflecting on our trip to Paris (which was also my first trip to France), I'm thinking back about a few things that surprised me during our time in that lovely city.

After seeing countless pictures of Paris for, well, my entire life, and studying French language and culture all the way through college (10+ years), I thought I had a fairly good sense of what visiting France would be like, especially Paris, when I finally got to see it. Ironically, Paris wasn't the first major European city I visited, even after all of that learning about it! By way of comparison, before Paris, I visited London twice, Edinburgh, Rome, and Florence, in addition to traveling throughout those countries during my time in each one. But, we finally made it to Paris - and we will certainly be back many, many times!
Even after all of that preparation and all of those travels in other major European cities, I was still very pleasantly surprised by so many different things during our recent trip to Paris.
Let me know if you felt the same! Here we go!
Don't forget to pin this on Pinterest for later!
