    Yes both cities are equally good, but once it’s come to choice in between it is very hard to pick between them. Both cities have there own charm in there own ways.

      Paris has the reputation as being romantic but I prefer London for the friendliness of people in general and ease of meeting people. Their pubs are really quaint affairs and the perfect cosy places to have a chat. Not like the big barns of places in Oz and the US
