Or something to that effect, I think John Lennon actually said : "A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality."
On my upcoming trip, I have 2 days in Paris upon arrival. Mainly to deal with jet-lag and make sure I'll be top shape when I get to Andrea (of @FranceHappened) in Strasbourg, 2 days later!
Simply three things on my to-do list :
- Visit Le Louvre (the only big attraction I haven't visited).
- Eat macarons from La Durée or Fauchon (or both).
- Attend the opening night of a ballet at Palais Garnier (w/ costumes by Christian Lacroix).
And then, I was talking to Nick last week:
him: "So you're arriving in Paris on the 22nd?"* And then I blushed like a little girl *
me: "Yes, around 9am I think.."
him: "Okay, because I'll meet up with you after your ballet :)"
me: "Oh wow, really? You're not gonna be swamped with school?"
him: "I can take saturday night off. I originally wanted to go to the ballet with you but you said you bought the last ticket before it sold out :("
me: "My god, you're so sweet! I didn't think of inviting you since I know you have 4 exams in the following days.. but that's amazing!"
me: "I'm looking forward to seeing you :D"
him: "Me too :D and we can go to that bar you wanted to go to afterwards"
So I guess I'll be seeing him sooner than I thought! Did I mention how excited I am?
Just to clarify, that's a countdown to my trip.. not to the end of my dry-spell. Although... ;)
P.S. If you like Paris too, reading this will be like porn for you:
