I am living in New York, but I was born in Florida and grew up in Chicago. Last year I travelled Europe. My expectation for Paris and London were very high, however, Paris disapointed me a lot.
Paris is very boring! It is okay if you are going there for a short break, but I was there for a month, and I couldn’t find anything to do! I did the obvious stuff like Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame etc, but after four days I was SO bored!!
London, however, is amazing.
There is so much to do: sightseeing, shopping, clubbing, dining, you can never run out of things to do.
London is the best city I have ever been to and it deserves to be number one on the list!!
