You may have read from my previous Outfit of the Day post that I was in Paris for the day the last week. My last visit to the french capital did not leave a great impression on me so I vouched to return again and this time round, I envisioned to see things from a rose tinted glasses. Needless to say, I was left with the same impression as the last time. At this point, I’m beginning to think I have developed a love/hate relationship with Pairs. I know spending a day is not enough to explore the sights and culture Paris has to offer but I wanted to take my time and check out a few popular spots with a different mindset this time round. I didn’t have an itinerary but rather I wanted to visit as many or little attractions as possible depending on the time. That was the plan but the outcome was far from it.
Once a blogger, always a blogger!
Of course blogging duties had to take over. Are you surprised? I’m not. Once a blogger, always a blogger! The purpose of this trip was to visit as a tourist and not see things from blogging or Instagram perspective but a week before the trip, I had a genius idea to vlog the trip as I thought it would be fun. I figured since its a day trip, I won’t have to do too much filming. I was so excited to show and share my findings with you that I forget to actually enjoy the city myself when I was there. It wasn’t all bad but my excitement levels were below par. The intermittent rain throughout the day did not help matters either. Why does it always rain when I’m in Paris and guess who didn’t have an umbrella? Moi. The rain was so bad at some point and got completely drench during the photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower that I decided to quit blogging there and then. But of course, the pictures we took made it all worth while so I decided to quit vlogging instead. Well, something had to give. This trip wasn’t the best nor the worst have been on so far. I just don’t know what is with me and Pairs, I don’t love the city and yet the idea of going back to visit doesn’t phase me.
Here’s a video I put together after my short attempt of vlogging of the things I did in Paris. I would love your honest feedback on it so leave me a comment and thank you for watching.
Are you in love with Paris or you’re on the verge of breaking up like me? Also, what’s your favourite city? I adore Venice.
