City of lights, city of love, blablabla. Paris!

In the future, you will hear me go on a lot about my country, Croatia. I wasn’t born there, but was fortunate enough to have moved half my life ago, and therefore got the best of both sides of the world. However, Paris is the topic today.

This place is so inspiring. The atmosphere, the passers-by, the surroundings, the trends, the way of living… Paris isn’t your crazy fun party city, it’s not your mainstream city in Europe you’ve gotta see because it’s just become cool like Budapest (along with the rest of the eastern part of the continent). It has just always been the place you need to visit before you die, or else. It’s stubborn, old-fashioned, sometimes quite hard to live with (mainly because its prices, mmm). Still, most of the time it ends up getting its way. Staying wonderful while doing so, if I may add. Paris simply has a soul.

So, I’ve found myself quite dumbfounded by the amount of tiny streets in random quarters of town that are equally, if not even more admirable, than any well-famous piece of architecture around here. The wind is pretty brisk, and while holding on tight to your not-yet-winter jacket, it’s just a shame not to snap a random pic.

Bonne journée a tous!

U budućnosti ćete čuti kako dosta razglabam o svojoj zemlji, Hrvatskoj [ova rečenica zvuči skroz domoljubno na hrvatskom, lol]. Nisam rođena u Hrvatskoj, ali sam imala dovoljno sreće da se doselim na polovici svog života, pa sam tako pokupila najbolje od obaju strane svijeta. Kako bilo, današnja tema je Pariz.

Ovo mjesto je stvarno nadahnjujuće. Atmosfera, prolaznici, okolina, trendovi, način života… Pariz nije onaj tipičan party-grad, nije onaj grad u Europi kojeg moraš posjetit zato što je postao kul ko’ Budimpešta (zajedno s ostatkom istočnog dijela kontinenta). Jednostavno je oduvijek grad kojeg moraš posjetit prije nego što umreš, točka. Tvrdoglav je, staromodan, teško je živjet s njim ponekad (pogotovo radi cijena, ajme!). Svejedno uglavnom uvijek završi tako da dobije po svom, i to u velikom stilu. Pariz jednostavno ima duše.

Ostala sam poprilično zapanjena s količinom malih uličica po random dijelovima grada koje su jednako, ako ne i puno simpatičnije i ljepše od bilo koje arhitektonske tvorevine tu. Vjetar zna biti dosta oštar, pa dok šećeš gradom u svojoj ne-još-zimskoj jaknici, jednostavno je šteta ne stati poslikati ono što te okružuje.
