It has been a while, hasn't it! Fourteen years since your last trip to Europe. You've been yearning to go back ever since you left Europe in 1997, but life was busy and you never had the opportunity. Today (25th Feb 2010) is your first day back in Paris and you feel like a part of you has come alive again. You feel cold too, but it doesn't matter. You are breathing in every delight and soaking in all the inspiration the streets of Paris reveal to you.
Enjoy this first day back in Paris, because in a few days your legs are going to be shattered.
