European Adventures | Paris, France International Photographer

Back in 2010/2011 (New Years), my friends and I had the opportunity to experience Paris, France for a couple of days. I wish I could say it was the best time, but I was left with the impression that the French really don’t like Americans! Which, could still be true. ;) Plus, we JAM PACKED…
