Paris. For as long as I’ve been traveling, I had always rated Paris as one of my favourite (large) cities in the world – along with New York and Rome. I first visited Paris in 1996, and I haven’t been back to the City of Lights since my epic backpack Europe trip of 2005. It was a great feeling to be back in Paris for a couple of days. I was able to visit the Rodin Museum and the Louvre, as well as undertaking a nine hour walking tour of central Paris. My friend Jorge, from San Francisco, joined up with me before we headed off to London for the three Coldplay shows.
