Paris is like my second home…and not because we have an apartment there or anything…but because when I’m there I am completely at peace and happy…the kind of feeling you only get when you’re “home”.And even though my heart has and always will belong to Miami…my soul is probably Parisian born ;) Here are a couple of the things I learned this time around in beautiful Paris:9) The best way to see a city is by using your legs.
