L’amour est la poésie des sens.

You guessed it… EuroTrip Night 2/Day 3… Paris, France. (And Night 3/Day 4 Belgium Brussels)

La vie est une fleur dont l’amour est le miel.

Life is a flower of which love is the honey.
– Victor Hugo

  
  

It was far more beautiful than I had imagined. Driving in (between naps) I had the pleasure to view the rolling green landscape of France. 

Vivre sans aimer n’est pas proprement vivre.

To live without loving is to not really live.
– Molière

Every mile I fell in love. 

  
Once we got into Paris, I couldn’t believe the grandeur of all the buildings. It is very much something you must experience; photographs and history books just don’t bring it to life with due justice. 

 Le seul vrai langage au monde est un baiser.

The only true language in the world is a kiss
. – Musset

  

We went to the Eiffel Tower, had Nutella Crepes, took an amazing bicycle tour, walked around Paris, had escargot, drank champagne, enjoyed fresh squeezed orange juice, stumbled upon a historical reenactment, photobombed a random family photo, and just had the best time. 

 J’ai aimé jusqu’à atteindre la folie. Ce que certains appellent la folie, mais ce qui pour moi, est la seule façon d’aimer. 

I have loved to the point of madness; That which is called madness, That which to me, Is the only sensible way to love.
– Françoise Sagan

  
  

 

This is absolutely one place I want to return. 

L’amour est l’emblème de l’éternité, il confond toute la notion de temps, efface toute la mémoire d’un commencement, toute la crainte d’une extrémité.

Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time, effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end. –
Madame de Staël

 
After Paris, we drove to Belgium, Brussels. There we enjoyed Belgium Beer, Belgium Chocolate, and Belgium Waffles. Nom Nom nom.

About ashleekarin

Every Sunday I tried to post updates since I succeed in camping the doorstep of the world during a 110 day road trip around the USA; The Roadside Bears blog was then brought head first into the internet world (changed to ashleekarin.wordpress.com). Included are the details of our adventures and how we are doing, as well as tips on how we made a road trip around the USA happen. It’s important to pursue your dreams to the end, even if you end up with nothing. After all, you only have one life to live; go big or go home. Join me vicariously through this blog – AshleeKarin.wordpress.com – and experience the adventure of my life. Viewer discretion is advised, as you will most likely witness a very hungry person freezing as they sleep in their car. I will always be planning the next great adventure – so don’t miss out, subscribe to the blog today! XoxO (big kiss little hug little kiss big hug ), Ashlee Karin
