When good Americans die, they go to Paris

Oscar Wild believed Paris to be an earthly heaven. Well… can you doubt him? I visited Paris a few months ago and I was stunned. I am a person who loves the arts so, Paris was the place to get me ecstatic over the museums, the galleries, the theaters and even the street artists.

Paris is absolutely magical. That’s why I must point out the creme de la creme of the things I saw! If you have the chance to visit it, don’t hesitate. Get on a plane or a train and go experience one of the most magical places on earth.

I was lucky enough to visit Shakespeare and Company, the famous bookstore, which I now call “my very favorite place on earth”. I adore bookstores in general… but the atmosphere in that one had me amazed. The smell of paper, the old flat of stairs, the piano and my personal ultimate dream: a desk in front of a window with a typewriter on it. If I could stay there forever, I surely would but I promised to revisit as soon as I can.

On my second night in the City of Light, being a Jazz lover, I went for a drink at the Sunset Jazz Bar. If you are also a jazz fun, you will never forget a night there. Such brilliant vintage atmosphere and a group of brilliant musicians playing the classic hits that we adore.

What can I say about Centre Pompidou? It is a must see but if you love modern art, you will be fascinated by more classic-modern pieces – such as Picasso and Miro – but also you’ll be given the chance to discover new artists. It is a sensational journey that takes you from artist to artist and from era to era. The architecture of the museum is also something to admire!

Walking the streets of Paris was magnificent. I advise you to walk as much as you can even if it’s cold. The atmosphere and the colors are the most beautiful part of the trip. Rainy or sunny, Paris is as beautiful as no piece of art. No wonder it inspired so many great minds…

I like to write, I like to read and I like to eat. I study Theatre - which I call "the love of my life" but I am also very interested in every form of art as well as psychology and philosophy. I have no idea where the road will take me, I just know that - being an introverted individual - I have a tone of not-yet-verbalized stuff going on in my head. Maybe you're thinking the same... That's why I decided to let it all out in a creative space like this. I hope you find what I write interesting. have a magical day...
