Musee du Louvre

Inside the Pyramid at the Musee du Louvre

It was supposed to be raining again today so we planned the day around it. We decided that we would visit two more ┬ámuseums today. The Musee du Louvre was first on the agenda. You could truly spend weeks in this museum. There were so many people around that it was difficult to get to some things like the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo. We did manage to see them but the Mona Lisa was from a distance. The crowds were just too much for that one! There are also signs all over the Louvre warning about pick-pockets : / Oops…be careful here! The outside of the Musee du Louvre is very beautiful and the inside is…well…it is just unbelievable!!! You could get lost and never be found in here! I know it will shock you to have me admit that I took way too many pictures in here…I have become my mother!! = ) So here are a few of my favorites from the museum…

Out and about in Paris

I spent yesterday walking around for about five hours! Trust me, my feet know it! Can you say blisters???? Ouch!!! It was fabulous though…minus the blisters. I can absolutely say that I love Paris just as much as a I did when I was 16. This place just has a magical feel for me! I feel strangely comfortable here….hmmmm!!??

Yesterday I walked the entire length of the Avenue des Champs- Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe which was so exciting for me to do again! It has been a long time. I feel like I need to pinch myself everyday to make sure this is real! : ) I then spent time at the Place de la Concorde seeing the Obelisque. From there I spent quite a bit of time walking around the beautiful Jardin Des Tuileries which is lovely. Then it was on to the Musee Du Louvre which, of course, is just stunning!!! I could have just stood there for the entire evening looking around at the amazing architecture….WOW! From there I walked along the Seine for some time. Tellement belle!!! What a day!!!
