Flying into Paris for the first time in my life, I marveled at how street lamps and whooshing cars glowed like fireflies beneath me in the pre-dawn this morning. Was it the jetlag and the power of suggestion, or does the City of Lights in fact twinkle with a tenebrous glow like no other place on earth? I was unable to stay and observe more Parisian lights firsthand, because my love and I breezed onto train platforms then taxis and found ourselves in Kortrijk, Belgium, by noon. This means I must sadly say my only experience of Paris remains from the sky and inside the airport, but these little slices of the city have managed to make me long to experience its cobblestone crevices even more. As if the firefly lights in the black/blue sky weren’t enough to whet my traveling appetite, I spotted airport shops that were stocked with jars of pricey foie gras. There were rows upon rows of the duck-liver delicacy (with numerous brands to choose from), and my foodie heart went wild imagining all the culinary delights that must lurk in a city that sells foie gras at the airport. Those shiny jars and dazzling lights are still dancing around in my mind, slowly inching Paris up to the top of my travel wish list. Whether or not Paris beats out Venice as the place I’d most like to visit next, however, I’m determined to walk the surreally lit streets at night and eat foie gras from jars and gourmet restaurants the next time I land in Charles De Gaulle…Have you been to the City of Lights, or do you have dreams of traveling there some day? Do you have a list of other places you want to see, and do certain destinations sometimes swap places in your rankings depending on whims, books you read or news stories? Do tell.
