21 Inspiring Quotes About Paris

I had to spend my first time on the European continent in Paris. I studied French from grades 7 – 12 and even earned a minor in college! I wish I would have had the time to study abroad when I was younger, but I’m grateful that I was able to experience Paris in the winter of 2018. (Not to mention I was able to find such a cheap flight from the States!)
