I am a Parisian girl from head to toe. My first time in Paris I spoke no French, and had a multitude of people saying Ca Va and smiling at me. Trust me, Parisians are not all cold! My french has gotten better now living in French speaking region and I still love to return to Paris to get my hair done from time to time, and also to go out for a night out. I always love the energy in Paris accompanied by some casual trips to the Louvre, Luxembourg gardens and all the glorious things Paris has to offer.
