Paris

Going back to our travels through Europe, our second stop was Paris. This was a very interesting trip in to the city.

We started with a long journey from London to Paris, which included a connecting stop in Lille. We forgot to eat a full lunch, which we came to regret. When we went to board our train, we discovered that we needed a reservation for our connecting train, which we didn’t have, so we were stuck at the train station for an extra 45min, on top of the hour or we already waited. This made the day much longer, and made us much more hungry!

I’m usually the cranky one when I’m not feed, but this time around it was my husband who was so EXTREMELY cranky (this never ever happens, EVER!). He wasn’t as excited to see the Eiffel Tower, and Paris as I was. All he wanted was food!

(Also, the picture on the left is a lie. He was not that happy!)

After dinner, after a drink or two, after our mean waitress stopped waiting on us, our evening became a little more enjoyable.

The following day we  bought our Paris Museum Pass, and we tried to hit as many museum as we could, starting with the Louvre of course.

That same day we stopped at Arc de Triomphe, Musée d’Orsay, and Orangerie. There were a lot of paintings and we did a lot of walking.

But the best part of the day was going on a bike tour thought the city at night. We were able to ride our bikes thouugh the court yard of the Lourve, which was amazing. Paris is a great place to rent bikes and ride around (SERIOUSLY, you should do it!).

That morning we had crepes with Nutella, and saw Notre Dame in the rain.

After Notre Dame, we finished up the day at Sacre Couer.
