The phrase 'everything happens for a reason' can be over used or used as an excuse when things don't go according to plan, but i've been converted. everything DOES happen for a reason. The first day we met the most gorgeous french girl, Pauline, (i liked her outfit and wanted to take a picture) ...
She ended up being our gateway to the 'real Paris'. Not the neon covered, souvenir embellished, cliche Paris, but the Paris that the Parisians see, the back streets, the hide outs. We got taken to the cutest Morocco themed free Jazz bar, and the grungiest underground house bar, meeting the most gorgeous people (including a girl from Bury called Marie, who lived in Paris for 5 months and is moving back to Leeds soon- what are the chances!?)
Paris became my home, we had a regular coffee shop (Who knew our order by the end of the week and just brought it to us with a smile)...
So i'll end with some sort of order... 3 lessons learned;
2.The more you look the more you see.
3.Don't be afraid of opening yourself up to the world and to strangers, because they teach you more about yourself than you ever would discover on your own.
Finally.... Massive thank you to my best friend, my soul mate and the most 'sparkly' girl in the world Miss Eleanor Tatchell, thank you for sharing the experience with me i couldn't of done it without you!
Peace and Love x
