T- 2 weeks!

In two weeks I will be in the air on my way to France! Wahoooo!

Courtesy of Wikipedia, some fun facts about Paris:

City motto: Fluctuat nec mergitur (Latin: “It is tossed by the waves, but does not sink”) Huh.

Most famous nickname: The City of Lights. Back in the day (aka the Age of Enlightenment) it was a renowned center of education and intellectuals.  Pretty cool to imagine all those balding old guys debating about physics and philosophy over a hot cup of café au lait. Do you take your coffee with existentialism or cream and sugar?

The Paris metropolitan area has a population of over 12 MILLION. Wiki says it is ‘one of the world’s major global cities’. Woaaah. It has the highest concentration of Fortune Global 500 Companies in Europe.

It is the most visited city in the world… tourist alert!
