I think it’s safe to say that I’m in love with Paris. I don’t know how our long distance relationship is going to work or when we are going to see each other again, but I think it’s going to work out.

This is what I love and will miss about Paris

  • the wide Haussmannian boulevards with terminating vistas
  • catching glimpses of the Eiffel Tower and the Sacre-Cœur
  • all of the beautiful parks
  • the public transportation, but espicallly the RER B, which I spent so much time on
  • the food (if anyone tries to tell you that being a vegetarian in Paris is hard, they are lying to you)
  • the Seine
  • riding the 6 and going through Vavin (which is pronounced like ‘va-va’)
  • the breathtaking art museums
  • listening to the French speak English, which they are terrible at
  • picnicking in one of the beautiful parks
  • did I mention the food?
  • being able to navigate the maze that is Les Halles
  • walking everywhere and feeling safe while doing so
  • the uniform sandstone buildings
  • getting lost and stumbling across something beautiful
  • or getting lost and then discovering that you know exactly where you are

I think what really made Paris special and what I miss the most were all of my amazing classmates, my professor, and all the friends that I made. If it were not for them, I don’t think that I would have had such a phenomenal time.
