Exploring Paris

I’ve been trying to finish documenting our Europe travels which happened 3 months back now but I have been very busy with work and preoccupied with family and social functions lately, so I just have to do it whenever I have the time. Hopefully I could be able to finish writing everything within this month. So going back to our…

A Taste of Italy in Paris
