Sitting in a Taxi in the 12th District in Paris.
Today I am leaving a city that left such a wonderful impact on me.
To say that I am leaving inspired is an understatement.
I’ve always heard so much about Paris, but nothing really compares to the truth about this city. This city is alive with art and a desire for the better things in life.
Fashion, health, photography, art, sculpting, history, beautiful gardens, great food, good conversation, and a passion for knowledge that I have not seen in any city that I’ve ever been to.
This city has inspired me to be a better person in just my short time here. I want to read more, expand my knowledge of art and photography on a deeper level, I want to study history and find a better understanding of the world around me – and most of all, it has re-lit the flame of desire for me to travel.
Traveling to foreign countries is an adventure of the most uncomfortable sort I would say. So many people stay inside their comfort zones their entire lives, but I find some sort of wonderful solace in putting myself in uncomfortable situations. It is without a doubt the quickest way to learn about yourself and the world around you – Add traveling alone in there, and you really have an insightful journey at your feet.
I feel so beyond blessed to have had this opportunity to see and experience more of this absolutely stunning planet of ours. Taking photos around Paris was one of the greatest experiences for me. And while I love taking photos for myself, it’s even more special when everyone else loves the way I see the world as well. I am so happy and proud to be able to share a little piece of Paris with you all.
