Inside the Musee D'Orsay

Today was once again rainy and cool so we opted for time in a couple of museums. The first one that we visited was the Musee D’Orsay. The building is quite impressive in its own right. The museum houses works from Monet, Degas, Van Gogh, Manet & Renoir to name a few. It was quite thrilling to view these amazing pieces!

Monet's studio & gardens

I worked most of yesterday so I could go play for some time today. I decided to take a bus to the lovely village of Giverny. It is about 1 1/2 hours from Paris. It also happens to be the village where Claude Monet created his works of art. The gardens are absolutely beautiful. It was great to see his studio, home and gardens. To know this was his primary inspiration for the amazing work that he created was a bit surreal for me. The countryside on the way way so green and lush already…tres belle!! What a perfect day!
