The crisp air is indication enough that winter in Paris is well under its way. Despite the cold, I’m glad we’re officially in the month of Santa. With the Christmas tree up and the wish list carefully penned, it was time to visit the famous Christmas Market along Champs Elysées.
As soon as I stepped out of the Metro station, the Christmas music playing through the loud speakers put me in the perfect mood for the holidays. The market was crowded with families and friends who flocked from booth to booth, hovering over the wonderfully handcrafted ornaments, jewellery, and delicious food. I munched on churros and crepes (with Nutella, of course) as I joined the crowds.
At the end of the Christmas Market, Roue de Paris awaited me. By then, the sun had set and I was romanticized by the Parisian night as I rode to the top of the ferris wheel. It was nothing short of delightful for my first ferris wheel ride.
There was just one last thing on my list before heading back to the suburbs outside of Paris. The night finished underneath the Eiffel Tower. Adorned in lights, the tower was even more impressive at night than in the day. As I stood there, I wondered if I would ever be lucky enough to live in Paris again.
Two more weeks until I say my goodbyes to this city.
