Visiting the City of Love on the Day of Love

Between my study abroad in London and Sevilla, I stopped by Paris for a few days, one of which included February 14th.  I’m not sure if it’s because it’s been engrained that Paris is the city of love, but walking through the streets, you can almost feel love in the air.  The city has a decadent feel with its buildings, monuments, food, and fashion.  During my time there, I was able to see the major landmarks and enjoy some foie gras, duck, and wine.  My best evenings were spent eating a chocolate and banana crepe and drinking mulled wine across from the Notre Dame.
