Paris Vs. New York

If I was stuck in a lift with you for an hour, you would find out that one of my dreams is to live in either New York or Paris some day.  To live in New York, I need a visa.  For Paris, a reasonable grasp of the French language.  Unfortunately I have neither right now.  But, I’m working on it.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose?

I love the Paris vs New York blog! I don't know where I would live. I love London but it's just too cold for me!

These prints are fantastic! I would love to live in Rome for a bit. I'd get completely lost and not have a perfect plan and figure things out along the way : )

I adore these prints! Easy peasy choice - if I could live anywhere in the world, it would be Bora Bora!

Those are adorable! I think I would pick Paris. If you want to switch identies, you could come to NY and I could go to Paris.

Oh this is so cute! I think I would pick New York, although I think Paris is prettier. In New York everyone seems alive though!

Awesome post!

Anywhere in the world, you say?...I love the island life...so relaxed and peaceful. The Bahamas would be a great place to call home!

I love these prints comparing my two favorite cities. We lived just outside NY for many years and took full advantage of going into the city on weekends even though my husband worked in the city. He was still a good sport about going in with us on the weekends. I miss NY way more than I thought I would...and living on the east coast makes it so much easier to get to Paris. I think one day we'll end up back on the east coast.

Where would I live? Hmmmmm...well, I think it would be Santorini, Greece. Or maybe St. Lucia in the French West Indies.

I'd love to see Paris and New York. I've never been to either of those places. :(

Ummmm, NYC or Philadelphia but I am cool with LA for now. :-) I always loved SF too.
Nothing like Europe, adore! xxx

PS- LOVE these illustrations, AMAZING!

Paris is special!

I love this series! My fav is the macaron and cupcake one. As someone who lives in Paris I feel biased, hehe. But actually I would love to live in NY or LA where I grew up :) I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I love this series! And i have to agree that visiting either NY or Paris would be incredible.

I live in New Zealand which I have to say I'm really stoked on and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. I do want to travel some more though! Right now top of my list is Thailand.

What a great post! I love both Paris and NYC, both of the cities have so much to offer =)

I've just stumbled on your blog, and I love this post, especially the bagel/baguette and amelie/carrie thing! I'd love to live in New York but I also need a visa. I did French GCSE but I don't think that would really help... :)
