When I was younger, I used to want to obtain objects with my spare money. But the older I get, the more I want to go on holidays and take a break from the normality of my life. I want to experience new cultures, see different sights, tastes new and fascinating things, visit areas that few people have been able to see and add store all those experiences and sensations into my memory bank so that I can replay them again and again and whenever I want to feel inspired.
My favourite holiday that I've had so far is my solo trip around Europe, in particular the city of lights, Paris. Some may say that Paris is over-rated, and that it smells and is dirty and crowded, but for me, Paris is definitely the city of beauty, culture, romance, gastronomy, style and of course, the lights.
I totally fell in love with the city, exploring beautiful buildings like the Notre Dame, Sacre Coeur, Louvre, to sitting in wonderful gardens like Jardin du Luxembourg, Tuileries Garden, exploring fascinating districts like Montmarte, Quartier Latin and Montparnasse. In between exploring, I would dine on simple French food at small cafes serving excellent baguettes, terrines and cakes, to fine French classical dining at three Michelin star restaurants like Pierre Gagnaire. The city lives up to it names of the City of Light as the night time vista is one that will take your breath away. The city completely transform into a totally different beast and is filled with such magnificent lights that you think you're dreaming. The biggest and brightest shining beacon is none other than The Eiffel Tower. As the name suggests, it towers over all the other buildings and is lit up for all to enjoy.
The memories that I have from my holidays are still so vivid and I constantly reminisce and also talk to friends about it. I can't wait to go on more adventures and enjoy more of the World's beauty.
