PARIS ON FILM // P A R T N I N E







The Catacombs were unreal.  I kept telling my Mom that I felt like I was on a Pirate's of the Caribbean ride or something. It was very hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that those were all actual bones. We tried to go to the cemetary where Jim Morrison is buried but it had just closed. I was disheartened but turned around to see that tiny European car, which made everything better. 

Thank you for taking a trip down Parisian memory lane with me!

PARIS ON FILM // P A R T E I G H T















The Louvre was incredible. Just it's sheer size was amazing. I was, again, a little overwhelmed by how many people were viewing everything through their iPads or camera phones, but it was gorgeous and fun to walk around in. Wish we would have spent a little more time there, but was happy to see the hi lights!

PARIS ON FILM // P A R T S E V E N














The Museum D'Orsay was gorgeous. Their cafe is amazing, it is quite in there, there is no photography allowed so people are actually taking the art in, instead of trying to get a selfie with it. We also made time to visit The Impossible Project space which was small but very cute. I was elated to find a VW bus in Paris! I have been collecting Polaroids of them lately. That was a masterful find for me!

PARIS ON FILM // P A R T S I X

















Our lunch date at Laduree was a dream. It was so fancy and cute and Parisian! It was interesting to read about their history and how and why they were established! The Arc was beautiful, we enjoyed it from below because both my Mom and I were too afraid to go to the top of it. It was insane watching the cars wiz by it. We also had the very best ice cream I have ever tasted in all of my life at a Hagaan Dazs nearby. I definitely prefer baked sweets to cold sweets, but oh my goodness- this ice cream was unreal.

PARIS ON FILM // P A R T F I V E












Just a few random snapshots from around Paris. Shakespeare and Co was incredible! I learned that they allow writers to come and stay in the store while they are working on a project, so they have a place to lay their heads and can be inspired and supported in Paris. WOW! Made me wish I was an author! They had a "no photography" policy which I respected, but I was so tempted to photograph that brilliant space! You will notice a Coca Cola classic in the photo, I am embraced to admit, I can not give up my Coke, even when they are like, $3 a can.
