My top 3 most romantic destinations so far

Lately, I keep reflecting on places I've visited that bring back very romantic memories. Being both a hopeless romantic and a passionate person, I thought I'd share my memories here since my old travel blog containing these destinations was wiped out earlier this year.


But of course!

I first visited Paris in 2001. I spent 5 days there without knowing any French. I had a blast and fell in love with this city instantly. It was truly love at first sight. I don't know what it is, but Paris tugs my heartstrings in the deepest way. I feel love whenever I think of Paris. I'd always smile and say to myself, "Ah...Paris..." whenever I see a scene in a movie or on TV being shot there. That's how much I'm in love with the City of Lights. This affair has been ongoing for 8 years and it's still going strong. :)

My first encounter with the Seine River.

Beautiful stained glass inside St. Chapelle dated back to the 13th century. This picture doesn't do them justice!
