My Favorite Travel Memory

My favorite travel memory is easily from Paris. Paris was my first solo trip when I moved to Europe and I met the most amazing girl from Argentina at the hostel. We decided to travel together and one night we did a boat tour on the Seine River. The tour started right in front of the Eiffel Tower and it was very late so it was lit beautifully. We were sitting on the open top deck, even though it was quite cold since it was February, and suddenly the Eiffel Tower started twinkling! We had no idea that it could do this and it was so overwhelming. Local musicians were playing music outside the boat and suddenly we found ourselves joyfully dancing on top of this boat in the freezing cold in front of the sparkling Eiffel Tower. We must have looked like maniacs but to us it felt like the world had stopped and we were the only two people living in that specific moment.
