I never really got the Paris hype. La vie en rose & moulin rouge & instaworthy Eiffel tower sunsets… nothing for me. Needless to say, I was pretty disappointed when I visited the city for the first time.  I was 16 back then, had a really bad cold and was way too sarcastic to appreciate the Parisian vibes.
