The Lourve



Oh the Lourve. I was so excited waking up knowing I was going here on that day. I have wanted to visit the Lourve ever since I found out what it was. I wish I could say that I could confidently cross it off my bucket list but unfortunately only stayed for two hours *cries*. We got in and made it as far as the statue room and the Napoleon apartments when my friend admitted she was bored and didn't want to spend any more time looking at old things. I was tempted to stay & let her have a wander but as she didn't have a phone to call her on later to meet up I thought it was pointless to argue & we ended up leaving. But I guess it just means I have an excuse to come again and spend a day or two as a right tourist with the guides walking around. 

I have to say what I did see of the museum was beyond spectacular. The statue room was my favourite! There was so much light & space, the statues were beautiful. I can't wait to visit the Egyptian department next time.






Sorry, I was far too happy in that room! 

































Have you visited before? What's your favourite part?

Le Tour Eifel


Okay so this is a tiny post compared to the others & I wasn't going to include them but what's a trip to Paris without the tower? Lucy & I spent a few hours across from the tower dipping our toes in the pools below the military school, sipping on cold water and licking ice creams and snacking on Ladureé macaroons. It was a beautiful day & I often sit at work thinking about how peaceful it was. It was my second visit & I promised myself that I would go to the top but the queues were ridiculous and the heat unbearable so once again I told myself next time I will plan it properly & go to the top & treat myself to the restaurant while I'm there. 







Has anyone else been to the top or to the restaurant before?

Pere Lachaise: Black and white


I couldn't resist taking photo's of Pere Lachaise in black & white as I was walking around. I juggled my phone, my samsung camera, & my iPad as I went around (I only used my iPad to save using all the battery on my phone) & I just couldn't stop. As I was taking a photo I realised that it would look perfect in B&W. I hope you like these shots although I do sincerely apologise for the quality! 











Probably the scariest thing in the whole of the cemetery! 













Meet Victor Noire. He is famous for being dead after challenging someone for a duel. A local told me that if a woman rubs the graves crotch & places flowers in the hat she will be married within a year! I passed on this haha but I'm still not married.
















What do you think? Are they haunting or beautiful?
