Yes, I know we're still dealing with spring here in Paris (which I absolutely adore so don't get me wrong!) but I'm so excited for summer I think I've already started preparing just a little bit. During the summer I usually feel the need to get away from Paris for a while, simply because the city is located in the middle of the country, which in other words mean: no beaches or no sea in sight. That's why I love escaping to Italy for a few weeks and why I will do so this summer again. A friend of mine pointed out that she doesn't even remember when she saw the horizon last and it makes me sad to think that I can't either. So bring on the salty water, ice cream cones and days spent with my feet in the sand!
