Nice was unbelievably beautiful  and I couldn’t stop wondering what it would be like to actually live in such a city.  The romantic walks along the beach were something I could only imagine in my wildest dreams.  The refreshing breeze from the ocean was all I needed.  Looking out at the never ending horizon helped take away the sadness from my grandmother’s recent death.  Nothing can prepare you for something like that.  I miss her everyday but I know she’s in her own paradise.  The apartment Philipp booked from Airbnb was absolutely gorgeous.  Beautiful view, all white with chic modern decor, a blogger’s dream home.   The weather in Nice was hot and the beach was crowded with locals.  As I looked around at all the colorful buildings and exotic flowers I kept thinking how lucky I was to be there.  Although our visit was short, we made the most out of every day and discovered new city squares every night. We ate fresh seafood from the ocean and drank delicious french wine.  There was music, wine and laughter.  I was falling more in love and never wanted to leave.  We ventured into the cutest boutique shops to find everything we wanted but didn’t really need.  During daylight hours the squares were filled with street markets but when dinner time rolled around it was swarming with nightlife.  It’s funny how you can always find an Irish pub in Europe no matter where you go.  We went to a nightclub down the street from our place and from what I remember it was a blast!  With the illuminated city skylines on either side of us, we spent our last night sitting on the beach before going out for another late night dinner.  It was a night to remember.  And to think that this was just the start of our vacation!  I’ll definitely be returning to this paradise.

Love, Chloé

Today was my 21st birthday and I knew that going to Montmartre would be the perfect way to spend it. It was full of romance, artists, and cafés. This incredibly unique village in Paris can only be described by Parisians as New Yorkers describe the Village. It’s not what it used to be. My parents met at a café in Montmartre, love at first sight you could say. This is the place that nurtured most of the great artists and writers living in France this past century. From the square you can wander around or sit in a café but be warned that the prices are higher and you will most likely be surrounded by tour groups. Inside the artist square of Place du Tertre, you will find the best artists who make their living drawing crayon and pastel portraits of visiting tourists. Many Parisian artists find their inspiration within the streets and beautiful hills in Montmartre. Artists paint from any vantage point where they can find room to set up an easel. Montmartre is the highest point in Paris and the breathtaking view of Sacré-Cœur creates an ambiance like no other. You see many couples walking around holding hands and kissing on the steps of Sacré-Cœur. It’s really easy to grab a bottle of wine and spend the afternoon enjoying the beautiful view. I had the most amazing time exploring the cobblestone squares and streets with Philipp. We ended the afternoon with a delicious lunch at Café Le Ceni’s to celebrate my birthday.

Love, Chloé
