Yeah, in Paris' defence, I've only been there once for a couple of days. And I didn't really see that much of the city (but you know that, because you were there). I think maybe my problem with Paris is that it's not different enough from Belgian cities like Antwerp or Brussels.
I will probably go back soon(ish). A train ticket from Antwerp to Paris isn't all that expensive, so I could even just make it a day trip... But even if I change my mind, I'll always think it's overrated, because people talk about it like it's somehow better and more special than any other city in the world, and it's not. It's still just a city.
But the city I'm absolutely in love with, is London. I mean, sure it's got it's grey and dirty parts too. The difference is that in London I love those places just the same.
