You know I love you. You're my favourite city in the world. Andre and I are planning to move to France just to be closer to you. My perfect weekend is spent wandering the streets of the Marais from café to bar to restaurant. I have walked down the Champs-Elysées in spring, summer, autumn and winter. I wear Jo Malone French Lime Blossom perfume just to remind myself of you.
But when it comes to magical Christmas lighting - Paris, I'm so sorry, but I think Berlin's Unter den Linden just about has the stylish edge over the Champs-Elysées. What can I say, the way those rope lights highlight the shape of the trees is just uber-fabulous.
I know you'll forgive me, my beloved Paris - I may be having a moment for Unter den Linden, but you know I still love you the most of all.
