we & france . [pt. 2]
It’s a craving, really . To travel . To adventure new places, meet new people, smell new scents, discover new places, speak new languages, and get completely lost time and time again . It’s a craving that has formed within me and it just keeps growing . To travel just opens my eyes to so many things I’ve never seen and opens my mind to realize, there’s endless amounts of things I’ve never seen . and i must see them . and i believe its possible to see them . maybe not all . but I really believe if you want to do something, there’s very little that can stop you from obtaining all you dream of .
So we decided on Paris, France . I’d been before, but it would be my beau and I’s first international trip and he had a friend studying there for a semester so we decided on it! Set it in stone and bough our tickets . His brother did too, as a graduation present for himself .
It was a trip full of plans falling through, unmet expectations, and jet-lagged frustration flowing our veins . ha not exactly a piece of cake . But the struggles we faced didn’t compare to the beauty that we saw . Or to the food that we ate or the experience of traveling together . Or to the fact we climbed to the top of the Eiffel Tower, had a picnic beneath it, hit all the touristy hot spots, and found hidden cafe’s and alley’s that the locals love . Met new people and made new friends, walked hundreds of cobblestoned streets, had numerous language barrier failures, kissed in the rain, shopped the Champs-Élysées, devoured (so much) gelato, and held hands on the RER subway . Little things and big things . Everyday things and once in a lifetime things . everything was ridiculously beautiful . there’s so much history and beauty in every ounce of this city and of the people it gives home to . and man did I shoot a crap ton of pictures . thousands I’m sure . I also met up with a sweet parisian instagram friend while I was there and I posted about her awhile back here .
But here’s the rest of them . Here’s three of my passions consuming this post and filling my heart . the boy, traveling, and photography . The Lord has blessed me greatly with such sweet and beautiful opportunities . Each image taken stems from and passion He placed within me . Each is a gift . Each is delight .
I hope you enjoy . & i encourage you to go .
