Romantic France

There is something about the French. I don’t know why, but even the choice of the font for their road signs, commonly with italics applied, conveys a sense of romanticism to me.

I’m reminded of a scene i saw in Paris, where a middle-aged couple were kissing passionately in front of the metro entrance, seemingly unwilling to part. It’s not just the younger ones who are affectionate. Romance is in their blood!

Come to think of it, even the Châteaux in France appear to be more “feminine” than “masculine”, having more curves than angles. They exuberate a sense of charm not found elsewhere. Check it out:

The word “romance” itself is believed to have a French origin!
