A couple of weeks ago I was sent on my first business trip at my new gig - to Paris! Not a bad place to be sent (during fashion week, no less), but I am pretty sure that everywhere else I get sent in the future will surely disappoint. The last time I was in Paris was in college, which is far too many years
ago to actually admit. At the time I was still living in Florida so it was really interesting to compare my experience now that I’ve lived in New York for so long. The biggest difference that I noticed was that the city seemed so much smaller now! Size aside, I was surprised by how much New York City and Paris have in common.
We both have our monuments that define our skylines
|New York Skyline|
|Paris Nighttime Skyline|
We both have our arches.
|Arc de Triomphe, Paris|
|Washington Square Arch, New York|
We both have our famous carbohydrates.
|New York Pretzels|
We both have our Metrocards.
|Paris Subway Station|
|Bedford Avenue Subway, Williamsburg|
We both enjoy al fresco dining.
The thing they have that we don’t? Sexy accents.
I will end this post by telling you about my new favorite place - which combines two of my favorite cities! Baguettaboutit - where Paris meets Brooklyn.
