PHOTODIARY / Van Gogh Evening

If ever there was a moment that I wanted to freeze during our time in Paris , that would definitely be our first evening stroll around Paris. It was my first time to see and walk along the fancy arrondisments. I promised myself not to give in to carbs and sweet breads but upon seeing the crepe stand in Rue Saint Charles , I immediately grabbed my coin purse and ordered a strawberry marmalade crepe without thinking twice. Then we stopped by a small thrift / vintage shop and the funny salesman got me into buying a vintage Celine blazer coat with shoulder pads ala Gvasalia's  Balenciaga for 40 Euros! LOL . But of course, our main goal was to stand in front of the Eiffel Tower and it's so hard because there were tons of beautiful distraction on the way. Unbelievable how people here go on living their lives with so much beauty around it. 

 We were starting to feel tired when we saw from the distance how it shimmied and sparkled as if 5 billion fireflies swarmed the whole tower. It was pure magic!

It was a fantastic discovery of streets, subways and those iconic pictureque apartments that I only get to see in books and Disney films. Observing the people in their heart-stopping rad outerwears and coats and shoes was a treat as well. I never wanted the day and night to end. From that moment , I realized how I kinda don't want to go back to Australia yet ( anymore?) If only travel money wouldn't cease to perish , holidays would be more enjoyable I am sure of it!
