24 hours in Paris.
I should have needed the company of a beautiful man, or prince, to make the city everything it should be. Instead I had a group of wonderful friends who I will "always have Paris" with that made our time there the perfect trip.
Because of money limitations, flight delays, and time limits....I was able to stay a mere day in Paris, backpacking through the night gazing at monuments and leaving sleep behind me to sit on the steps of the
Basilique du Sacré-Cœur (Bascillca of the Sacred Heart) and take the city all in.
Throwing our wishes off simultaneously over the City of Light, the wind (or the universe) seemed to be against me in this gorgeous moment. The wind was so strong, my wish came back at me and smacked me square in the face.
During the night we visited the entire city. The Versailles Palace, the Arc de Triomphe, Norte Dame, The Louvre, and the Pantheon.
We did a non stop (well, not entirely true, we stopped for coffee....8 euro. Big upcharge from the 1 euro coffee in Spain.) self-guided tour, and without sleep, daylight rose the next morning and we had one more last thing to see.
My wish didn't come true.
But thanks to great friends, a great city, and Gustave Eiffel, the 24 hours in Paris was a great adventure.
