Missing Paris?

Hard to believe that at age 50 I find myself missing Paris so much. Avoided it for 48 years and went 1st time in 2006 and then again last November. We are fortunate enough to be able to travel abroad twice each year and while the wife wants to go to Australia, China, India, etc. all I want to to do is visit Paris again! I don't speak a word of French and yet I am drawn to Paris in a way that surprises me!

Has aanyone else had this experience?

I use to feel that way about New Orleans, as I lived there for several years until I went to Paris.

I've been there twice, and I miss it a lot. I'm not sure when my next trip will be, but I DO know that I'll be there again.

Aldo Nola, you are not alone, in fact there are thousands of us, millions most likely,, LOL

There are websites decicated just to Paris, and many people make many repeat visits.. never enough.

It always strikes me as funny when people say to me " going to Paris again, you 've already been there" ,, like one visit is enough, and these are usaully the same people that will repeatly go to Hawaii or Disneyland, , or even their cabin on the lake ,, LOL

There is a name for a condition," PPD, Post Paris Depression", only known way to alleviate syptoms are to plan another trip, even if it years away!! LOL

I consider Paris to be a very serious addiction, worse even than the addiction that I had for nicotine. The thing now for me is that no way do I want to break that addiction. Just relax and accept it for what it is, at least let Paris seduce you with all her charms.

I understand your feeling about Paris. It's true that - and I don't say that because Paris is my homùetown - there is something magic in Paris. The city is soooo beautiful, I travelled a lot and found this feeling only in London.

Paris is addictive, even if expensive, and not very very safe. But Paris is magic^^
