As we were sharing travel stories, the idea of coming to visit her for New Years Eve came up.
Could I really fly to Paris, less than a month after returning from Rome, to celebrate NYE in the City of Lights?
Prior to the whole Paris conversation with Olivia, Kelsey and I briefly talked about going somewhere after Christmas since we both had time off. London, Hawaii, a cruise, among a few others were thrown out there.
So when I asked Kelsey about going to Paris is luckily didn’t take much convincing! A few days later we booked out direct flights from CVG to CDG. Confusing I know.
10 days after we booked our flights, the unthinkable happened in Paris. The terrorist attacks obviously weighed heavy on my mind, like the rest of the world.
I’m curious to see first hand how the city is now compared to when I was there for a few days in 2012.
But travel on we must.
Travel Lesson: Jump at opportunity to do something exciting with your life.
Despite what others may tell you, travel can be healing.
Looking forward to an amazing week in Paris with 2 great friends who have yet to meet.
Kelsey and Olivia, I hope Paris is ready for us!
