It’s a Tale of 2 Cities; Paris and London!
Paris is classy & sassy! So grab your big girl city attitude, those big girl shades, a sassy hat or a flowing scarf and let’s take the city by storm. Paris has fashion, art, and immense pride in its history and culture. Paris is a city unlike any other. While most tourist travel to Paris to see the Louvre, climb the Eiffel Tower, or see Notre-Dame, the real magic is found in the streets. It is so elitist and black girl bougie to sit at a beautiful outdoor Paris cafe with a glass of wine while people watching. I can’t wait to be black girl bougie in a setting that simply caters to that cititude!
London is a bustling metropolitan city where unlike Americans that might think nothing of smiling at a stranger they pass on the sidewalk or asking about work in the first few minutes of a conversation, London etiquette errs on the more private, respectful, and more distant side of personal interaction. It’s simply a difference in cultural norms where the conversation leans more toward things like movies, TV shows, books, and your travels. With sites and cultural hubs like the National Portrait Gallery, Trafalgar Square, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Kensington Gardens, and all manner of food, drink, shopping, history, and culture, it’s no wonder why it is a top travel destination.
