I have always been delighted at the
prospect of a new day, a fresh try,
one more start, with perhaps a bit
of magic waiting somewhere
behind the morning.
– J. B. Priestley
It’s great being back in one of my favourite cities, this place has a tendency to light a spark inside and fill me with so much joy. Every morning, I woke up with excitement although the lack of hours of sleep. Just the sight of the white buildings behind my white cotton curtain made me jump out of bed.
Just the sight of the sun rising over the rooftops, overhearing vague conversations in french from people passing outside the hotel and observing how the city came to life was beautiful. I could easily spend hours at our terrace if it hadn’t it been for our busy schedule.
Just being able to start the day taking in the beauty of the city made me feel privileged and grateful. Hopefully, one day I will be able to stay longer and who knows, maybe one day I will live there for a while. But for this trip, being able to wake up with the city while enjoying a cup of coffee on the terrace was just precious.
Traveling is all about learning new things and expanding your perspectives, over the years I’ve learned to pick up positive traits from different cultures through out my trips and time abroad. In France I found myself amazed by how effortlessly chic the Parisian women are.
One thing that became very clear was the pace in Paris, although this capital is filled with life it struck me how people were moving in a much slower pace than expected. These beautiful mornings were not just a tranquil moment before the day started, they were a good reminder to add some tranquility to every morning, regardless of were I am.
