ALL IN LOVE

 

IMG_4586The snow melts, the sun slowly comes out and Love is in the air. With Valentine’s Day just a couple of days away I’m going to give you my personal top cities around the world where Cupid and myself can point you in the same direction of his arrow. 

 

MAUI HAWAII

I call this part of Hawaii a magical island. From a lovers hike, boat ride to Molokini Crater, dinner and walk along the beach, this will guarantee you a lovers lifetime and something the two of you will never forget. Do not miss the best sunset you’ll ever see to end a magical day holding hands and sharing a Mai Tai.

SAN FRANCISCO CALIFORNIA, USA

IMG_2524
People tend to leave their hearts here. At night, the city sparkles if the San Francisco Bay Area fog is not in the way. Hop on a cable car from Market Street down to Fishermans Wharf and walk along the Pier. You will have a 360 degree view of the city’s beautiful lights and both iconic bridges The Golden Gate and Bay Bridge. Have a glass of Chardonnay at the Embarcadero’s Hyatt Hotel while the Piano Maestro serenades you. Have a seat along the waterfront and be sure to offer her your jacket at dusk.

VENICE ITALY

Everything about this stone made city built on water will make you go on your knees and want to say the unforgettable words. There are many cafes along the walk ways where you and your loved one can remake the scene from “Lady and The Tramp” by having a glass of chianti and sharing a plate of pasta. There are no cars along the roadways where you can stroll along the canal holding hands and even enjoy a romantic gondola ride. (George and Amal Clooney got married the same week I was in town, but I misplaced my invitation and was unable to attend.) TI AMO

PARIS FRANCE

IMG_1772
Paris is called the city of love for no reason. Everywhere you go you’re for sure to find some kind of romantic gesture to your loved one or even a complete stranger. That is how beautiful this city is. They have horse caged rides waiting for you right by the Eiffel Tower and can take you anywhere in this city. Stroll along Pont Des Arts and make sure you lock the key to her heart before they take down the bridge wall. But from my understanding the locals still keep locking their hearts along the waterfront.

I SHOW THAT SMILE

I DANCE MY LIFE AWAY

PEOPLE THAT KNOW ME

JUST CALL ME CRAY

***

I GIVE YOU HUGS

I MAKE YOU LAUGH

BUT NO MATTER WHAT

I HAVE YOUR BACK

***

YOU DO NOT REALLY KNOW

THE FEELING I HAVE

OF BEING LOST

OR TAKING A JAB

***

GOOD AT HIDING IT

BUT IT HURTS INSIDE

JUST KNOWING

YOU MAY NOT BE MY SIDE

***

BEEN NEGLECTED

EVERYTHING IS GONE

NOW RUNNING SOLO

AND JUST CARRYING ON

***

STILL SHOWING THAT SMILE

NOT LETTING IT GET TO ME

GOING OUT ON MY OWN

JUST WAIT AND SEE

***

STILL BEING ME

IN THE BEAT OF A DRUM

AND TAKING AWAY

THE FEELING THAT IS NUMB

***

LIKE THEY SAY

EVERYTHING IS OK

JUST GO ABOUT

AND SHAKE IT OFF ANYWAY
